sold with the product. Any mounting of the product should follow the
manufacturer's instructions, and should use a mounting accessory
recommended by the manufacturer.
9) A product and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the product and
cart combination to overturn.
10) Ventilation -- Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect
it from overheating, and these openings must not be blocked or covered.
The openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed,
sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should not be placed in a
built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation
is provided or the manufacturer's instructions have been adhered to.
11) Power Sources -- This product should be operated only from the
type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure
of the type of power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or
local power company. For products intended to operate from battery
power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
12) Grounding or Polarization -- This product may be equipped with a
polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having one blade wider
than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This
is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet,
try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your
electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug.

14) Outdoor Antenna Grounding -- If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system
is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and
built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of
the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an
antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of
antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.
"Note to CATV system installer:
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to
Section 820-40 of the NEC which provides guidelines for proper
grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be
connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point
of cable entry as practical.
