• EXPLOSION - FIRE HAZARD
• Never store propane near high heat, open flames, pilot lights, direct

flame, pilot lights, other ignition sources or while lantern is hot to touch.
• During operation, this product can be a source of ignition. Never use
the lantern in spaces that contain or may contain volatile or airborne
combustibles, or products such as gasoline, solvents, paint thinner, dust
particles or unknown chemicals. Minimum clearances from combustible
materials: 12 inches from the sides and 48 inches from the top.
• Provide adequate clearances around air openings into the combustion
chamber.
WARNING
Not for home or recreational vehicle use.
We cannot foresee every use which may be made of our products.
Check with your local fire safety authority if you have questions
about use.
Other standards govern the use of fuel gases and heat producing products for specific uses. Your local authorities can advise you about these.
• Never refill disposable cylinders.

General Safety Information cont.
DANGER
• CARBON MONOXIDE HAZARD
• This lantern is a combustion appliance. All combustion appliances produce
carbon monoxide (CO) during the combustion process. This product is
designed to produce extremely minute, non-hazardous amounts of CO if
used and maintained in accordance with all warnings and instructions. Do
not block air flow into or out of the lantern.
• Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning produces flu-like symptoms, watery
eyes, headaches, dizziness, fatigue and possibly death. You can't see it and
you can't smell it. It's an invisible killer. If these symptoms are present during
operation of this product get fresh air immediately!
• For outdoor use only.
• Never use inside house, camper, tent, vehicle or other unventilated or
enclosed areas. This lantern consumes air (oxygen). Do not use in
unventilated or enclosed areas to avoid endangering your life.
WARNING
• This product is fueled by propane gas. Propane gas is invisible, odorless,
and flammable. An odorant is normally added to help detect leaks and can
be described as a ”rotten egg” smell. The odorant can fade over time so
leaking gas is not always detectable by smell alone.
• Propane gas is heavier than air and leaking propane will sink to the lowest
level possible. It can ignite by ignition sources including matches, lighters,
sparks or open flames of any kind many feet away from the original leak.
Use only propane gas set up for vapor withdrawal.
• Propane gas should be stored or used in compliance with local ordinances
and codes or with ANSI/NFPA 58. Turn off propane when not in use.

CAUTION
• SERVICE SAFETY
• Keep all connections and fittings clean. Inspect propane cylinder and
lantern propane connections for damage before attaching.
• During set up, CHECK FOR LEAKS in one or more ways: Apply
soapy water to connections. Look for bubbles. Listen for hiss of
escaping gas. Feel for extreme cold. Smell for rotten egg odor. Never
use a flame. Do not use if leaking.
• Use as a lighting appliance only. Never alter in any way or use with
any device or part not expressly approved by Coleman.
