"Thank you for participating in Kidde’s fire extinguisher replacement program. Customer safety is our priority and we are pleased by the strong response to our recall announcement. However, due to high demand the most comparable replacement for your unit is backordered.

We regret any inconvenience this has caused and are working diligently to fulfill your order as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your patience."

That is regarding the two replacements requested on Nov. 3, 2017. They haven't arrived yet.

On December 30th I went to the Kidde on-line site and filled it out for the two extinguishers in the boat (2015) and the one in the truck(2013). The on-line site told me that the two extinguishers in the house and garage ( which were older models) were not subject to the recall. On January 8th I had three new extinguishers on my front porch with pre-paid mailing labels to send the recalled units back to them. They must have worked through the back log (at least on the white M110 units) because that is remarkably fast service. The new units have completely redesigned trigger mechanisms that are no longer all plastic.

I called the Kidde Recall hotline the other day with a question about any deadline we might have to be concerned about. I was told the recall has NO deadline for submitting a request for replacement fire extinguishers. I was concerned about this, as others may be, because of not knowing when new ones would arrive and being in position to send the old ones back. This will benefit those that are on the move with there boat vs being at at home for a extended period of time.

The new units come with new mounting brackets but they are identical to the old brackets so you don't need to do anything to remount them, just put them in the old brackets and 30 seconds later you are done.

I note that the new units have a very slightly smaller diameter and this means they are so much easier to clip into the previous brackets. :D I always found clipping the old units using the capture plastic locking strap a PITA. :lol:

As an aside I took my old units in their boxes as instructed to my local FedEx store and they refused to take them as they've been told they don't have the proper safety precautions for handling explosive devices. They said they MUST be picked up by a qualified FedEx lorry/vehical from one's house or some other pickup location. My trip to the local FedEx store was a wasted trip... so will have to follow the return instructions PRECISELY. :lol:

Baz,
Are you married?
If so, you should know that by now.
