Fire extinguishers, just like clothes, come with a tag (in this case, the yellow plastic thingy around the lever). Apart from the guilt that carries on after overspending on clothes, a fire extinguisher makes up a valid investment for the safety of your house, car, and your loved ones. Similar to buying clothes, you might have an urge to remove the tag once you've brought the Fire Extinguisher home. That's where it's different, YOU DON'T. That's right, DO NOT REMOVE THE YELLOW TAG!
But why you may ask?
The other issue with accidental discharges is that they can reduce the pressure in the extinguisher and trust us when we say this, you don't wanna be walking around with an almost empty canister in an event of an emergency. So it is of vital importance to keep the tag in place for the safety of your home and loved ones.
The function of the tag is to keep the safety pin in place. So as to prevent any accidental discharge from the fire extinguisher. Since they're carried from the same handle that acts as a lever, there's a massive chance that with the absence of the tag you might end up trying to extinguish a fire that's not even there in the first place.Contact us for more information on fire safety!
