Fire Extinguisher Deployment Test Video
Nice tidy place for your second fire extinguisher. Your fire extinguisher looks like one I had in my C-150. A halon unit without a pressure gauge on it. My fire extinguisher leaked over an unknown period of time until it was empty. I only found this out when I picked it up during an annual inspection and noticed how light it was and when I sloshed it back and forth there was no liquid inside.
I notice you have an inspection tag on yours. I suggest you weight it regularly to make sure it isn't leaking.
I replaced mine with another larger halon extinguisher in my C-150, this one has a gauge. It also leaked down after many years but at least I noticed it because of the gauge.
The reason I bring this up is that based on my experience with dry chemical fire extinguishers, I had the idea that extinguishers don't leak and are serviceable for decades. Based on a sample size of two for two, this isn't the case with halon extinguishers.
