    Renfroe Plate Clamps Usage Guidelines

    Renfroe Plate Clamps Usage Guidelines

    A pointing out and notice of danger. The purpose of a “warning” is to apprise operators and all other affected persons of the existence of danger of which they should be, but may not be aware of; and to enable the operators
    to protect themselves and others, where applicable, against such danger. An attempt is made herein to warn against reasonable and reasonably foreseeable danger in the proper use and possible misuse of Renfroe products depicted in our catalog.

     

    1. DO consult Operator’s Manual or Renfroe when in doubt.
