GENERAL SAFETY RULES - FOR ALL BATTERY OPERATED TOOLS
WARNING! READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all
instructions listed below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
• Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas invite accidents.
• Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or
• Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating a power tool. Distractions
can cause you to lose control.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged
cords may create a fire.
• A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a separate battery pack must be
recharged only with the specified charger for the battery. A charger that may be suitable
for one type of battery may create a risk of fire when used with another battery.
• Use battery operated tool only with specifically designated battery pack. Use of any
other batteries may create a risk of fire.
• Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power
tool. Do not use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or
medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your
hair, clothing , and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair
can be caught in moving parts. Air vents cover moving parts and should be avoided.
• Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the locked or off position before
inserting battery pack. Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or inserting the battery
pack into a tool with the switch on invites accidents.
• Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool on. A wrench or a key that is
left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and
balance enable better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
• Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes,
hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
Tool Use and Care
• Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable
platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of
• Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
• Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. A tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
• Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the switch in the locked or off position
before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool. Such
preventative safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
• Store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained persons. Tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
• When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects like: paper
clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects that can make a
connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals together may
cause sparks, burns, or a fire.
• Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
tools, with sharp cutting edge are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
• Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other
condition that may affect the tool's operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced
before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
• Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for your model.
Accessories that may be suitable for one tool may create a risk of injury when used on
• Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or
maintenance performed by unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
• When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in
the Maintenance section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow
Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of shock or injury.
Specific Safety Rules
• Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the
cutting tool may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a "live" wire will
also make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and shock the operator.
• Keep hands out of the plunger and rod area of the caulk gun. Fingers can be pinched
between the tube holder and the plunger.
• When operating caulk gun overhead, do not have plunger rod in the path of your
eyes or head. Plunger rod may slip back in direction of user. Always wear eye protection
when using the caulk gun.
• Always work in properly ventilated area and wear appropriate respiratory protection
if necessary. Fumes from some caulks and adhesives can be noxious.
• Always read and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the caulk or adhesive
tube. Failure to do so may result in personal injury.
The label on your tool may include the following symbols.

as shown in figure B, making sure to match (+) and (-)
terminals correctly. Replace battery compartment cover.
WARNING: Batteries can explode, or leak, and can
cause injury or fire. To reduce this risk:
• Carefully follow all instructions and warnings on the battery
label and package.
• Always insert batteries correctly with regard to polarity (+
and -), marked on the battery and the equipment.
• Do not short battery terminals.
• Do not charge batteries.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Replace all of them at the same time with new batteries of
the same brand and type.
• Remove dead batteries immediately and dispose of per local codes.
• Do not dispose of batteries in fire.
• Keep batteries out of reach of children.
• Remove batteries if the device will not be used for several months.
"Transporting batteries can possibly cause fires if the battery terminals inadvertently
come in contact with conductive materials such as keys, coins, hand tools and the like.
The US Department of Transportation Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR) actually
prohibit transporting batteries in commerce or on airplanes (i.e. packed in suitcases and
carryon luggage) UNLESS they are properly protected from short circuits. So when
transporting individual batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and
well insulated from materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit."
CAULK OR ADHESIVE TUBE PREPARATION
• Follow manuafacturer's recommendation to suit the job.
Cut the nozzle of the tube at an angle. The closer to the
end of the nozzle that you make your cut, the narrower the
opening will be. The smaller the opening the smaller the
• The seal poker (7) can be removed (or stay attached to
caulk carriage) as shown in figure C and used to pierce
the inner seal of the tube. Make sure that the seal is
pierced. If not, the material may be forced out the rear of
the gun. When using a partially depleted tube, insert the seal poker (7) first to remove any
hardened material on the inside.
CAULK OR ADHESIVE TUBE INSTALLATION
• Insure the on/off switch (5) is in the full off position by
moving switch to "O" position.
• Remove the caulk carriage (6) by rotating it
counterclockwise until arrow on tool is aligned with unlock
image on caulk carriage. Pull caulk carriage straight out.
• Pull the plunger (4) back far enough to allow the tube to fit
in the caulk carriage (6).
• Insert the caulk or adhesive tube into the caulk carriage.
Make sure that the seal has been broken inside the caulk
• Insert the caulk carriage into the main housing as shown in
figure D. Confirm caulk carriage is aligned properly, then
rotate carriage clockwise until arrow on tool is aligned with
lock image on carriage.
• Push plunger rod forward until it rests against the back of
the tube as shown in figure E.
