Important Safety Information

Safety Messages

Read entire sheet and all instructions before operation. Refer to the website for an explanation of safety labels and symbols.

DO NOT operate when damaged. If the arms are damaged or fail to rotate freely under normal operation for any reason, discontinue use until repairs can be made.

The Easy Cover arms move with the help of springs which must be properly released before any repairs. All spring tension must be properly released before any repairs. See Properly Releasing Spring Tension for proper instruction before any repairs.

Routinely inspect tarp and arms for wear and/or damage. Replace all worn or broken parts immediately.

Be sure that your working platform is secure. Use OSHA approved ladders or scaffolding to work above ground level.

Keep all clothing clear of moving parts.

Always wear safety glasses.

Check for overhead power lines.

Always check for overhead obstructions before covering and uncovering.

DO NOT operate under low hung power lines.
Springs and arms are under extreme tension. Broken or damaged components could cause death or serious injury. Follow instructions on releasing spring tension.
Never stand near damaged arms/tarp. Always check to make sure that no one is at the rear of the box or in the immediate area while repairing. Arms could come loose allowing the arm to rotate to the rear with tremendous force.

Keep all clothing clear of moving parts.

Crank handle is only used for uncovering. Remove and store crank handle when not in use.

Tarp MUST be fully covered or uncovered before traveling. If not properly positioned (covered or uncovered) damage could occur from overhead obstructions.
