A short supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards of becoming entangled in or
tripping over a long cord. Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their
use. If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the detachable
power-supply cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical
rating of the appliance. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord
should be a grounded 3-wire cord. The extension cord should be arranged so that it
will not drape over the counter top or table top, where it can be pulled on by children
or tripped over.
