Not really a "mod" so a thread unto itself. Not something I've historically carried either, but that strap in the cargo area driver's (left) side was just begging for same in a small form fit. I already have one of these mounted interior between my garage doors so knew it would be the ideal size.

Now, this is Pricey. I say again, Pricey! But given it's a safety item far easier to self-justify then many other mod's i've done over the years. And as it's Halon it's much more effective and less self-destructive than typical dry chemical types. I happened to catch a bit lower price one day on Amazon as well.

I used some of my go-to pieces of yoga mat to pad out the tapered top for a firm fit (also the strap doesn't completely shorten on both ends as you will see). I also affixed some hook-side Velcro to the bottom.

Oh, and I went with black as they've been out of Red for quite some time (likely Covid factory furlough), and the chrome is even more expensive and too much bling. The black also melds into same background nicely.

Now that you have a first aid kit alternative, what's your plan for warning triangle slot on the hatch? :)

After you mentioned "pricey" several times I held my breath as I clicked the link...and yep, it's pricey! hahaha

Now, the real question I have for you is whether this is for the vehicle or if you encounter a fire elsewhere? Because will it be effective against a battery fire?

Both. ;)
There's a reason ICE service stations, et al, very often have Halon nozzles above their pumps.
And yes, Halon is very effective against battery/electrical and most other types of fires. Plus it doesn't itself damage electrical connections as dry chemicals often do.

My first aid kit (carryover Audi) is in the passenger door well. Triangle is under the cargo cover. ;)
I have my first-aid kit from my Jetta, keep it in the trunk deep well. 5# fire extinguisher(ABC) on the floor behind the passenger seat. Truck warning triangle also in the deep well. Trunk package steady blocks from my Jetta in the flat storage area, still in plastic, never used them.
