DANGER AN IMPROPERLY LOCATED OR INSTALLED
MONITOR CAN CAUSE DEATH OR SERIOUS BODILY INJURY
READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION THOROUGHLY
BEFORE INSTALLATION
It is unlawful in most jurisdictions for a person to operate a
motor vehicle equipped with a television monitor located
where the operator can directly or indirectly view it. In
some jurisdictions, television monitors in motor vehicles may be
prohibited or may require the television monitor to be located
behind the operators seat.
Ensure that you are completely aware of and familiar with
all applicable regulations and restrictions related to the
use of this equipment in a motor vehicle for your local
jurisdiction.
In the event of an accident, passengers can be thrown against
objects in the vehicle. Ensure that the monitor location is in
a position where it will not be struck by a passenger in the
event of an accident.
ALWAYS mount the monitor securely using appropriate
hardware to a structural component in the vehicle. Failure to
properly secure a monitor could result in the monitor
coming loose and endangering the passengers in the
event of an accident.
The INSTALLER accepts all responsibility for proper installation
of the monitor. Rosen Products, LLC, is not liable for any
damages, incidental or otherwise, which may result from
the installation of this product.

Precautions
• Use this system only after proper installation by a qualified
installer.
