PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product from moving
when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from non-migrating rubber material
specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your furniture. However
certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may
cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a rubber residue on the furniture. To
prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase small
self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centers
everywhere, and apply these pads to the bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the
product on fine wooden furniture.
