The IPGOUD safety pull pin is suitable for 10 lb and 20 lb Strike-First portable fire extinguishers.
For 5 lbs Strike-First fire extinguishers, it is harder to state whether the IPGOUP or the IPGOUPD pull pin is suitable, as the manufacturer has alternated between them over the years. You must measure the pinhole and select the correct pin based on its diameter. For 5 lbs Strike-First portable fire extinguisher manufactured after 2015, the suitable pull pin is this one (IPGOUPD).
2 ½ lbs Strike-First extinguishers require the other model of pull pin (IPGOUP).
Dimensions: Length 7.8 cm (3 1/16”), diameter 4.5 mm (3/16”).
Why use a safety pull pin?
The purpose of a safety pull pin is to prevent the accidental activation of a fire extinguisher. You will understand its importance if you ever activate a powder extinguisher indoors. In few seconds, you will have a huge cloud of yellow powder that reaches into every nook and cranny and will require hours of cleaning.
What to do if the safety pull pin is missing?
If during the inspection you notice that the safety pull pin of the extinguisher is missing, ask yourself the following question: Has the extinguisher been used? If that is the case, we recommend to contact our customer service and schedule a maintenance service by one of our technicians. Our price list is available under the Services tab. We serve the Greater Montreal area.
Remember that chemical powder fire extinguishers become depressurized following activation. The compressed propellant gas escapes and renders the extinguisher non-functional even if some powder still remains inside. This is why it is important to ensure the extinguisher is in proper working condition before reinstalling it. You can use a replacement safety pull pin to secure your fire extinguisher. If you have the required experience to determine that the extinguisher has not been used at all, you can also add the seal to the pull pin. Seals are available on our online store.
