Adapter Plugs

Adapter Plugs
Usage situations where appliance's
power cord will be disconnected
(Adapter plugs not
permitted in Canada)
Align large
Because of potential safety hazards under
certain conditions,we strongly recommend
against the use of an adapter plug.
However, if you still elect to use an adapter,
where local codes permit, a TEMPORARY
CONNECTION may be made to a properly
grounded two-prong wall receptacle by the
use of a UL listed adapter which is available
at most local hardware stores.
The larger slot in the adapter must be
aligned with the larger slot in the wall
receptacle to provide proper polarity in the
connection of the power cord.
Ensure proper ground
and firm connection
before use.
CAUTION: Attaching the adapter
ground terminal to the wall receptacle
cover screw does not ground the
appliance unless the cover screw is
metal, and not insulated, and the wall
receptacle is grounded through the
house wiring.
You should have the circuit checked by
a qualified electrician to make sure the
receptacle is properly grounded.
When disconnecting the power cord from
the adapter, always hold the adapter with
one hand. If this is not done, the adapter
ground terminal is very likely to break with
repeated use. Should this happen, DO
NOT USE the appliance until a proper
ground has again been established.
Usage situations where appliance's
power cord will be disconnected
Do not use an adapter plug in these
situations because frequent disconnection
of the power cord places undue strain on
the adapter and leads to eventual failure of
the adapter ground terminal. You should
have the two-prong wall receptacle
replaced with a three-prong (grounding)
receptacle by a qualified electrician before
using the appliance.
