This product is intended for indoor use only.

This surge protector is not a lightning arrestor and might not protect against lightninginduced voltage surges.

Be sure the total wattage of all connected devices does not exceed 1875 watts.

Use the surge protector only with a threeprong standard AC plug. The surge protector cannot provide protection without a grounded AC source.

Retain Instructions — Retain the safety and operating instructions for future reference.

Damage — Unplug the surge protector from the wall outlet and replace it:

a.When the power cord or plug is damaged.

b.If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the surge protector.

c.If the surge protector has been exposed to rain or water.

d.If the surge protector has been dropped or damaged in any way.

e.When the PROTECTED WHEN LIT indicator goes out.

If the GROUNDED WHEN LIT indicator does not light, your surge protector is not grounded. You must reconnect it to a different grounded, three-prongAC outlet.

Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 6-OutletElectronic Equipment Wall Tap Surge Protector. Your surge protector protects your valuable electronic and AV equipment by absorbing electrical spikes and power surges. It ensures steady performance of the connected devices by filtering electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.Rý ."

PROTECTED WHEN LIT Indicator — Lights green when the connected devices are protected.

GROUNDED WHEN LIT Indicator —

Lights green when the connected devices are properly grounded.

Safety Alarm — Sounds a buzzer when the AC line is no longer protected.

Safety On

Safety Off

Safety Design Slide Covers —

Prevent children from inserting metal objects into the unused AC socket(s).

Modular F Connectors — Provide protection against surges from the connected TV or cable source.

Swift Detection and Protection —

Detects and protects against a power surge of up to 6,000 volts and 60,000 amps within 1 nanosecond (1 billionth of a second).

Solution

The surge protector's AC line is no longer protected from surges; replace the surge protector. The surge protector may have received a power surge or spike beyond its specified limits that might overload the protection circuitry and make it inactive. If this happened, the surge protector should have absorbed enough of the surge to protect the

Condition

The GROUNDED WHEN LIT indicator does not light.

Solution

Your surge protector is not grounded. You must move it to a different grounded, threeprong AC outlet. #

Condition

The PROTECTED WHEN LIT and GROUNDED WHEN LIT indicators turn off, and the surge protector sounds an alarm.

Solution

Your surge protector's AC line is no longer protected from surges and power is not allowed to pass beyond the alarm. When the surge protector receives an unusually strong surge, the built-inprotection absorbs the surge to protect your equipment. If the surge is strong enough, it diminishes the protection circuitry’s ability and the surge protector sounds an alarm. If the PROTECTED WHEN LIT and GROUNDED WHEN LIT indicators will not light, replace the surge protector.

Keep the surge protector dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Use and store the surge protector only in normal temperature environments. Handle the surge protector carefully; do not drop it. Keep the surge protector away from dust and dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.

If your surge protector is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. Modifying or tampering with the surge protector’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty.

LIMITED THREE-YEARWARRANTY AND CONNECTED EQUIPMENT GUARANTEE

LIMITED WARRANTY — This surge protector product is warranted by RadioShack to the original purchaser against manufacturing defe cts in material and workmanship under normal use for three (3) years from the date of purchase (the “Warranty Period”) from RadioShack company owned stores and authorized RadioShack franchisees and dealers . In the event of a covered product defect during the Warranty Period, RadioShack will, at its option, unless otherwise provided by law: (a) correct the defect by surge protector repair without charge for parts and labor; (b) replace the surge protector with one of the same or similar design; or (c) refund the purchase price of the surge protector.

CONNECTED EQUIPMENT GUARANTEE — RadioShack warrants to the original purchaser of the surge protector that if any electronic equ ipment (the “Connected Equipment”), which is properly installed and connected (as defined below) to the surge protector and is damaged during the Warranty Period by a transient voltage surge/spike from the AC power line, telephone line or coaxial line that enters the Connected Equipment through the surge protector, RadioShack will reimburse to the original purchaser of the surge protector the lower of the: (a) Connected Equipment repair charges; (b) purchase price of equipment comparable (as determined by RadioShack) to the Connected Equipment; or (c) original purchase price of the Connected Equipment, up to a maximum of twenty five thousand U.S. dollars ($25,000.00) (the “Equipment Limit”). The Connected Equipment Guarantee does not cover data loss or any other damages excluded in the all capitalized paragraph below. In order to qualify for Connected Equipment reimbursement, the surge protector must be returned to RadioShack and inspection of the surge protector must show its protection capacity was exhausted by a surge. “Properly installed and connected” means the surge protector must be plugged directly into a properly wired and grounded AC outlet; no extension cords, adapters, other ground wires or electrical connections may be used to connect the surge protector to AC power and no more than one piece of Connected Equipment may be connected to any one surge protector outlet. The wiring in the building must comply with all applicable codes (NEC, CSA, etc.), and all wires (power, telephone and coaxial) leading into the Connected Equipment must pass through the surge protector. To claim damage to Connected Equipment as a result of telephone line transients, the surge protector must provide telephone line protection, and your telephone service equipment must include a properly installed and operating “primary protection” device at the service entrance. Primary protection devices are normally available from the telephone company and added during telephone line installation. To claim damage to Connected Equipment as a result of coaxial line transients, the surge protector must provide coaxial line protection.

This Limited Warranty and Connected Equipment Guarantee applies only to the original purchaser of the surge protector.
