April 21, 2012 - Granny Fears For Her Safety!



I bought some equipment for the garden yesterday, but I don't know if I'm brave enough to use it.  Each piece came with this dire warning attached:  !WARNING  To prevent injury: 1. Wear ANSI-approved safety goggles during use.  2. Inspect before every use: do not use if damaged.  Save these cautions.




What do you guys think?  Should I take a chance?

Is that beyond ridiculous or what?  That tag is attached every single little clamp!  The cost of attaching the tag probably exceeds the 49-cent price of the clamp.  Get real  :-0

  7. That is so funny! I picked up a couple packages of similar clamps and they had the same warning right above the upc code.

  8. I think the tag is more dangerous than the clamp.

  9. Wow, that's crazy! My new John Deere had 2 small tags and that was it. Still, I'd be careful that clamp looks like you could lose a finger or put out an eye, LOL!!!! :-)
