If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this feature or modify the plug in any way. If the plug fits loosely into the AC outlet or if the AC outlet feels warm, do not use that outlet.

This product features a special “quick release” magnetic detachable cord. For increased safety and injury prevention, the cord is designed to detach from the heating element when accidentally tripped over or pulled on.

A short detachable power-supply cord is to be provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.: Longer detachable power-supply cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
