Important Safety Instructions
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
CAUTION! DO NOT connect to an ungrounded outlet. DO NOT use with 2-wire extension
cords or adapters. This surge protector is designed for indoor use only. Install the surge
protector away from heat-emitting appliances such as radiators or heat registers. Do not
install where excessive moisture is present. Do not plug extension cords into it. Never install
electrical, telephone, network or coaxial wiring during a lightning storm. Do not drill into any
part of the housing or open the housing for any reason. There are no user-serviceable parts
inside.
• Use of this equipment in life support applications where failure of this equipment can
reasonably be expected to cause the failure of the life support equipment or to significantly
affect its safety or effectiveness is not recommended. Do not use this equipment in the
presence of a flammable anesthetic mixture with air, oxygen or nitrous oxide.
Installation
Connect Your Surge Protector to the AC Power Line: Plug the surge protector directly into a
3-wire grounded, 120V AC outlet.
Secure Surge Protector to Outlet Using Included Mounting Screw (SK30USB only):
Securing the surge protector to the outlet will prevent accidental disconnection. Remove the
wall outlet cover plate and plug in surge protector. Screw in the included mounting screw to
attach the surge protector to the outlet.
Check Your Surge Protector’s Diagnostic Indicator Lights: If your surge protector features
diagnostic LEDs or indicators, check them prior to connecting your equipment. They will indicate
various operating conditions when the surge protector is plugged into a live 120V AC outlet and
the surge protector’s power switch is on.
“PROTECTED” LED: Indicates the surge suppression components are intact and providing
complete protection against surges. If this LED does not illuminate, some of the surge
suppression components are not functioning, and the unit should be replaced.
Visit www.tripplite.com/support.
Connect Your Equipment to the Surge Protector’s AC Outlets: Plug your equipment’s power
cords (including 2-wire devices) into the surge protector’s AC outlets. Select models feature
integrated safety covers which cover the outlets when not in use. Other models feature special
widely-spaced outlets to accommodate transformers without covering other outlets. DO NOT
plug in extension cords. DO NOT OVERLOAD the surge protector’s outlets. The surge protector
can accommodate a total equipment load of up to 15 amps (whether plugged into a single
outlet or spread out over multiple outlets).
USB Charging Ports: Two USB charging ports are capable of delivering up to 2.1 A total (2.4 A
total for the SK10USB). This will provide enough power to charge the most demanding devices,
including smartphones, tablets and MP3 players.

Ultimate Lifetime Insurance Policy
This is a limited warranty valid in the U.S. and Canada only.
Tripp Lite warrants, for the lifetime of the product, (at Tripp Lite's option) to repair or replace (on a pro rata basis) directly
connected equipment that is damaged due to power transients while properly connected to Tripp Lite products offering the
Ultimate Lifetime Insurance Policy. Power transients include spikes and surges on the AC power, data or telephone lines that the
Tripp Lite products have been designed to protect against (as recognized by industry standards). The following four paragraphs
are conditions that must be complied with before the warranty becomes valid; failure to comply with these requirements will void
the warranty.
AC Power Line Transients: To claim damages, the Tripp Lite product must be plugged into a properly wired and grounded outlet.
No extension cords or other electrical connections may be used. The installation must comply with all applicable electrical and
safety codes set forth by the National Electrical Code (NEC). Except as provided above, this warranty does not cover any damage
to properly connected electronic equipment resulting from a cause other than an "AC power transient". If user meets all of the
above requirements, Tripp Lite will repair or replace (at Tripp Lite's option) equipment up to the specified value (See Ultimate
Lifetime Insurance Policy Limits). No coverage is allowed for damage entering from telephone or data lines, unless they are
separately protected, as described below.
Telephone and Data Line Transients: Tripp Lite will repair or replace directly connected equipment that is damaged by transients
on telephone and/or data lines only when all such paths are protected by a Tripp Lite protection product(s) and the AC power
(utility) line is simultaneously protected by a Tripp Lite power protection device (UPS, surge protector or line conditioner) with
Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage. Additional telephone and/or data line connected devices downstream must have their own
telephone and/or dataline protectors.
Reimbursement dollar limits will be equal to that of the Tripp Lite power protection protector. Coverage is excluded where a
suitable environment for the protection device is not provided, including, but not limited to, lack of a proper safety ground.
Telephone service equipment must also include a properly installed and operating "primary protection" device at the telephone
service entrance (such devices are normally added during telephone line installation).
All above warranties are null and void if the Tripp Lite product has been improperly installed, tampered with or altered in any way,
or if the connected equipment was not used under normal operating conditions or in accordance with any labels or instructions.
All claims under this warranty must be submitted in writing to Tripp Lite within 30 days of the occurrence or the claim will not be
considered. This warranty does not include damage resulting from accident or misuse, and applies to the domestic (USA &
Canada) use of these products only. Tripp Lite reserves the right to determine whether the damage to the connected equipment
is due to malfunction of the Tripp Lite product by requesting the equipment in question be sent to Tripp Lite for examination. This
policy is above and beyond, only to the extent needed, of that provided by any coverage of connected equipment provided by
other sources, including, but not limited to, any manufacturer's warranty and/or any extended warranties.
EXCEPT AS PROVIDED ABOVE, TRIPP LITE MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Some states do not permit limitation or exclusion of implied
warranties; therefore, the aforesaid limitation(s) or exclusion(s) may not apply to purchaser. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED ABOVE, IN NO
EVENT WILL TRIPP LITE BE LIABLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT
OF THE USE OF THIS PRODUCT, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. Specifically, Tripp Lite is not liable for
any costs, such as lost profits or revenue, loss of equipment, loss of use of equipment, loss of software, loss of data, costs of
substitutes, claims by third parties or otherwise. Coverage also does not apply to connected medical and industrial equipment.
To receive service under this warranty, you must be the original purchaser/user of the product in question. You must obtain a
Returned Material Authorization (RMA) number from Tripp Lite. Products must be returned to Tripp Lite with transportation
charges prepaid and must be accompanied by a brief description of the problem encountered and proof of date and place of
purchase.
