    Kidde 5BC direct replacement for X4 hull bins?

    If we need replacement extinguisher, it there a direct replacement to the Kidde 5BC?

    Looking around, it looks to be discontinued, and all common sources seem to have moved to the 10BC, a larger diameter frame which does NOT fit the bins allotted container correctly.

    Any easy solutions?

    Modeling a new pin to 3D print for my good existing extinguishers now if there is no avalible direct replacements?

    no.. just get a small one, remove one of the plastic bins under the hood.. drill two holes for the mount.. and BAM.. all done.

    The size of the handle is what is important. The height I believe is a few inches shorter, but the diameter is right.

    I had purchased a few of these First Alerts as clearance items from a local boat dealer. They are marked 2012 year of manufacture. The part number I found on them is FE5R-PWCNA. A quick search yielded some Ebay and closeout specials. Like I said above, the design was probably rebranded as an Auto Fire Extinguisher. The one on the far left is a Kidde original equipment extinguisher for comparison. As you can see in the last photo, the FirstAlert fits fine, and yes, the cover does screw on.
