Fire Hoses (Tow Straps) & Fire Extinguishers

Time to begin funding the K5 mods...

I have 6 fire hoses, all of which appear to be in unused condition. Pull off the nozzles and use them as tow straps, or modify them to fit the spicket next to your driveway and wash your truck in 10 seconds flat. I also have a few dry chemical fire extinguishers by Kiddie and First Alert, all of which show to be completely full. $8 each. Pictures available upon request.

As to the fire hoses, I have one that is approximately 100 feet long and 2.5" wide, rated at 250 PSI. $50.
I have one hose that is approximately 70 feet long and 2.5" wide, rated at 250 PSI. $35.
I have 4 hoses that range between 48 feet and 50 feet long, all 2.5" wide, rated at 150 PSI. $25 each.

Am I correct in guessing you've used fire hoses for tow straps before? Reason I'm asking, is well, its an interesting concept, just not real clear on how that'd work, attachment points as a knot probably wouldn't work so well......at least not when disconnecting the pulling vehicle from the towed vehicle......How tough are they when getting yanked on?

Hoses are just rubber lined with a cotton weaved jacket. I'd be surprised if they were worth the effort to make a strap out of. More than likely, the stretch they will provide will rip the jacket. Yeah, they can flow a lot of water.. but you have to have the plumbing that can supply that amount of pressure/flow. Otherwise you have a lot of hose .. and less pressure than your garden hose will put out. I'd expect it would take you at least three times longer to wash your car. Not to mention what a 2.5" hose weighs when it's full of water.

I'm not trying to diss your sales here.. just want to make sure that people are more aware of what they're getting.
