Sarah Gao's Fire Extinguisher was developed specifically for installation in a pet store, explaining the somewhat unconventional approach to its design. The wall-mounted flame retardant mechanism was inspired by some of the items that one might find around a shop for domestic animals. Its method of handling was also influenced by the way people interact with their beloved critters.
Looking like a magnified retractable dog leash, the device is complete with an opening towards one corner that facilitates a comfortable grip. To activate and deactivate the douser, you simply pull the two halves apart or together. Sarah Gao's Fire Extinguisher has a relatively rectangular form but has been molded with smooth rounded edges. These encourage you to cradle the appliance easily like you would your kitten or your puppy.
