Assembly
The EasySweep requires very little assembly. Remove it from the box and check
it against the illustration to familiarize
yourself with the components listed. The
exploded view diagram with part names
will also be helpful if you should need to
order a part at a later time.
1. Assemble the handle by taking the section
with the non-slip grip (1) and the middle
section which has grey connector pieces on
each end (2). Insert the middle section (2)
into the grip section (1) and twist to tighten
into place. Next, take this assembled section
and insert into the bottom section with a hole
(3). Twist to tighten into place.
2. Take the assembled handle and line up the
bottom hole with the button on the swivel
connector on top of the EasySweep. Push
the button on the swivel connector down
while pushing the assembled handle over
the button, locking the handle into place.
3. The EasySweep must be fully charged
before using. To charge the unit, plug the
charger into a standard electrical outlet
(120v-60hz); plug the opposite end into
the charging port on the back side of your
EasySweep. The charging indicator light
will illuminate when properly connected
and will not turn off when fully charged.
The EasySweep is now charging.
Note: The Power Switch must be in
the OFF position when charging.
