Double Insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug(one blade is wider than the other.)This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way.If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,reverse the plug.If it still does not fit,contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet.Do not change the plug in any way.Double Insulation eliminates the need for the three wire grounded power cord and grounded power cord and grounded power supply system.Before plugging in the tool,be certain the outlet voltage supplied is within 10% of the voltage marked on the nameplate.Do not use "AC only" rated tools with a DC power supply.Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes,radiators,ranges and refrigerators.There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is grounded.If operating power the power tool in damp locations is unavoidable, a Grounf Fault Circuit Interrupter must be used to supply the power to your tool.Electrician's rubber gloves and footwear will further enhance your personal safety.
