Carefully disconnect the mains power lead from the back of the trolley and
from the wall socket placing the power lead in the cable tidy located on the
rear door of the trolley.

4. Getting started
There are ventilation holes through the base and on all four sides of the cabinet,
and care must be taken that none of these holes are obstructed. Select a location
where there is sufficient airspace for the cabinet to ventilate. Your UnoCart™
should not be left within a cupboard or small closed space when charging,
because the recirculation of its own warm air could lead to unnecessarily high
temperatures for periods of time.
With your UnoCart™ in its working position, the mains lead can be fitted into the
mains socket at the rear of the right side of the cabinet and taken to an available
wall socket to be plugged in and switched on.
The front doors of your UnoCart™ are unlocked using the key with the blue key
cover, and the rear door has a separate key with a black key cover.
The front doors are for everyday working access to the cabinet. The key can be
removed once the door is open, this will prevent the door from closing fully whilst
it is unlocked. Once the key has been removed, the door can be swung right back
against the side of the cabinet, where a magnet will hold it in position.
The rear door should not be considered as day-to-day access to the cabinet,
once opened you will see a safety earth lead with a push-on fixing on the rear
door which must be disconnected before the door can be fully removed. Once
the connector has been pulled apart, the door can be lifted out of the slots along
the bottom edge and placed to one side. (For your safety, please ensure that you
reconnect the earth lead when replacing the rear door). (Figure 4)

adaptor into a plug socket and load the AC adaptor block into the special
area on the back of the relevant shelf and cable tie in place (Figure 5).

6. Charge and sync - set up
Dealing with your host laptop/Macbook
The top shelf of your UnoCart™ is designed to accept a single MacBook or laptop
PC and there is a charging socket within this space to plug in the AC adapter that
is supplied with the computer.
The laptop computer will normally be loaded onto the shelf with the charging
socket to the front of the cabinet, either on the visible edge (the rear of the laptop), or on the left or the right side (Figure 7). Position the AC adapter on the shelf
where it will not hinder the loading of the laptop and where the charging lead can
be easily routed to the charging socket.
There are a number of holes in the top shelf where the cable ties or cable
management clips supplied with the cabinet can be used to hold the wires in a
convenient position, should you wish. Alternatively, the laptop computer can be
powered from the socket on the top of the cabinet. In this location there is also a
USB connection to the synchronisation capability within your UnoCart™. There
is also a security cable on the top of the cabinet to secure a MacBook or laptop
computer while it is in this location.

Loading your devices
The charging and synchronisation unit of your UnoCart™ is accessible through the
rear door of the cabinet.
A charging / synchronisation connection must be made between your UnoCart™
and each supported iPad. It is important that a good quality lead is used to make
the connection between your iPads and the charging/synchronisation unit, poor
quality leads can create problems during the synchronisation process.
Plug each connecting lead into an available USB socket in the charging/
synchronisation unit and route them through to the front of the appropriate
shelf, where it will not be in the way of loading the iPad, but it will be available to
plug in once the device is in position. There are a number of holes at the rear and
sides of each shelf where the cable ties or cable management clips supplied with
the cabinet can be used to retain the charging/synchronisation lead in position,
should you wish.
Button modes
The lights on the charge and sync unit explains which mode it is in; sync and

At no time should anyone attempt to physically lift the trolley, as this could cause
injury to the persons concerned and even damage to the trolley, which will
invaldate the manufacturer’s warranty. Should the movement of the trolley

person. In such circumstances, the matter should be referred to LapSafe®
Products for consultation and advice.

Safety Declaration
Recent guidance from the Health and Safety Executive regarding “Laptop computer charging trolleys safety
alert” requires interpretation from each manufacturer as regards to their product compliance. The HSE
statement can be found at: www.hse.gov.uk/services/education/safety121009.htm
CE Testing, Conformity and Declaration of LapSafe® Products
At LapSafe® Products we are proud to confirm that ALL of our electrical products, going back over ten years, have been thoroughly
tested and certified (by an authorised and INDEPENDENT testing house) and accordingly have been clearly CE marked.
Full CE compliance, which includes the requirements of LVD and EMC directives, is a STANDARD FEATURE of LapSafe® Products, as
are many more “built in” safety features. CE Marking can be found on the product serial number plate, usually at the lower rear of
the cabinet. CE Declaration of Conformity Certificate is issued with each product in the User Guide Pack.
You may obtain further copies of the certificate specific to your product and serial number, or any further information and advice,
upon request to our Customer support– call direct 01787 226147 or FREEPHONE the switchboard on 0800 130
3456 or email support@lapsafe.com.
Rest assured that your LapSafe® Product has been designed and built with Safety as the highest priority since we first introduced
the concept of the “mobile laptop trolley” into the UK market in the last century. This is, indeed, why we are called “Lap SAFE”.
Residual Voltage
The HSE has raised a concern (having identified at least one particular manufacturer’s trolleys with this “characteristic”) that many
manufacturers’ trolleys (if indeed not the vast majority), may have a momentary residual voltage on the pins of the mains plug and
that this could, if you touched the pins within a second or two of unplugging, result in an electric shock.
LapSafe® Products have been designed from the outset with safety internal circuitry as standard so as NOT to retain or present any
significant residual voltage in this way. In fact, it is virtually impossible to get any such significant electric shock from our cabinets
in normal use.
However, regardless of how safe any particular trolley may be, we endorse the recommendations for employing common sense
practise as a generic rule for any mobile electrical appliance, such as switching off the mains socket before unplugging the power
leads and NOT moving the trolleys without disconnecting and unplugging the power leads at both ends. Two of the wheels are
fitted with locks as standard and should be kept locked as a reminder when power is connected and as a general safety rule as per
the user instructions supplied with each cabinet.
