provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or
tripping over a longer cord.

and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
c) If a long detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used,
1) The marked electrical rating of the detachable power-supply
cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the
electrical rating of the appliance,

should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and

the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children
or tripped over.
Note: If the power supply cord is damaged, it should be replaced by
qualified personnel; in latin America, by an authorized service center.
