In the title molecular salt, C15H14ClN2OS+·C6H2N3O7−, protonation occurred on the double-bonded N atom. One of the nitro groups shows slight disorder over two orientations, with an occupancy ratio of 0.91:0.09. In the crystal, classical N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, as well as C—H⋯O contacts connect the components into a three-dimensional network. The seven-membered ring adopts a boat-like conformation. The least-squares plane defined by its non-H atoms encloses an angle of 38.99 (6)° with the benzene ring bonded to it.
