  • Do Not Carry Electric Tools by Their Power Cords!

    Always carry a power tool by its handle. Do not carry an electric tool by its power cord; this can damage or break the cord’s connection to the tool which will either reduce its power and performance or render it temporarily obsolete. Carrying a power tool by its cord also makes the tool more susceptible to body damage. So, don’t do it. Hold and carry your power tools by their handles only.
