Power Cords and Strips
This surge-protected power strip is rated for 15 A / 120 V / 1800 W at 60 Hz and has a 6 foot (1.82 m) 14/3 SJT power cord. Two of the six outlets are spaced for use with power adapters. All six of the outlets have safety covers for additional protection. The underside of the durable industrial metal housing has four slotted key holes for hanging or mounting.
Attention: This power strip is designed for indoor use only. It should not be installed or used in wet or damp areas exposed to moisture, such as aquariums. This device must be properly connected to a grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not plug the SP620 into another SP620 or similar surge-protecting device.

To use, slide an included cap screw, threads up, into one of the slots on the underside of the power strip. With the nut facing away from the power strip, thread the base onto the screw. Repeat this process for the remaining three bases.
