In the believe it or not category: a friend of mine is an attorney and told me of a man who, several years ago, mounted 2X4's to the edge of the underside of the mower deck of a push mower and lifted it by the 2X4's in order to save time trimming his hedges. Yes, I said he picked up a running lawn mower by the deck with his bare hands to trim his hedges. You can see this one coming.

One day he slipped and the mower blade cut off the four fingers of one of his hands that were curled under the 2X4 on one side. He sued the mower manufacturer and won because there was no warning that if he used the mower like this it would be dangerous!

Now you know why there are labels on new products that warn that using products in a manner for which they were not intended can result in personal injury. Some labels go so far as to say that using for unintended purposes are illegal. I think these "generic" labels are because there isn't enough room to list every possible dumb a** thing somebody can come up with.

westfalia and others

that sign cracks me up......that's a great one.

and actually applies quiet nicely to airstreams......
maybe they could modify it a little and slap in on the door....

'caution this trailer contains lots of sharp edges.
expect to catch your skin and clothes
on screw tips, trim ends, aluminum sheeting and various metal burrs....
but enjoy, it's part of the airstream owner experience!'

as part of the ongoing customer service experience
we now include a box of bandages in every trailer....

cheers

Arrow I feel left out............

I haven't found one label in our 67.

The only warning sign I have is a red ribbon hanging from a top cabinet edge to remind me that there is no bottom cabinet, should I bend over and wack my head on the way up.

We plan on removing it when the unsafe condition is rectified.

Hope OSHA approves.

Our 63 has warning labels on the propane tanks, both the van and the car have warning labels telling us the safety devices (airbags) may kill us.

I don't think the Great Gyam ever made a caravan to Namibia. I first saw this on an astronomy website -- believe it is a really primitive road to an observatory:

Here's my favorite, from the shaft of the WeedEater. I scanned the one out of the manual to be more readable. Check out the dog getting the rock bounced off his noggin!

As 2AIR posted previously, this sticker it is one of my two favorite warnings. It was the only sticker in all of the many many warning stickers in and on the AS that I could not remove by peeling or using mild detergent, and had to have the the factory tech remove for me since the sticker told me not to use what he did, lol. The other was on the water inlet. I can't remember what it said...anyone?...I think it warned of injury or death, or was it dismemberment?
