or in a wet basement.
2. Ventilation – The unit should be situated so that its location or position does not interfere with it’s proper ventilation. For example, it should not be
situated on a bed, sofa, rug or similar surface that may block ventilation openings. Also, it should not be placed in a built-in installation, such as a

5. Grounding or Polarization – This product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug. (a plug having one blade wider than the other)
As a safety feature this plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to fit the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If
the plug still fails to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug by forcing the
plug into the outlet.
6. Power-cord Protection – Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or
against them. It is always best to have a clear area from where the cord exits the unit to where it is plugged into an AC outlet.

Installation and Maintenance
Installation
1. Remove the unit and all packing materials from the carton. You should save packing materials in case unit needs to
be returned for service. If you do not wish to save the materials, please dispose of them properly.
2. Place the unit on a stable, level surface, close to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources of dust,
dirt, heat, water, moisture, vibration, and strong magnetic fields.
3. After installing the batteries (see below) and reading the Maintenance notes, plug the AC cord into an outlet.
“Sure Alarm” Battery Backup Installation
It is strongly recommended that 2 “AAA” alkaline batteries be installed into the unit, as directed below, to activate the “Sure
Alarm” battery backup feature. In the event that the AC power cord is disconnected or a power failure or other interruption
occurs, the “Sure Alarm” system will maintain the clock and alarm settings for the life of the batteries, ensuring that the
alarm will sound at the set time (note: while operating on battery power, all set alarms will sound as a buzzer). When power
has been restored, the clock will cease using the battery power, and will once again operate on AC power.
1. Gently turn the unit over and remove the battery compartment door.
2. Install 2 "AAA" batteries (alkaline batteries are recommended for longer life) into the
battery compartment, making sure that the + and – ends match the diagram printed
inside the compartment.
3. Close the battery compartment door, making sure the door locks into place, and gently
return the unit to its upright position.
Maintenance
Battery Compartment
1. Place the unit on a level surface away from direct sunlight or sources of excessive heat.
2. Protect your furniture when placing the unit on natural wood or wood with a lacquered finish. A cloth or other protective
material should be placed between the unit and the furniture.
3. Clean the casing with a soft cloth moistened only with mild soap and water. Stronger cleaning agents, such as thinner
or similar agents, are not recommended, as they may damage the surface of the case.
4. If the unit is not to be used for a prolonged period, such as a month or longer, remove the batteries to prevent possible
corrosion. Should the battery compartment become corroded or dirty, clean the compartment thoroughly and replace
the batteries.
