"AIRBAG FRIENDLY " and "AIRBAG COMPATIBLE"

Much has been discussed, advertised and promoted regarding the compatibility between installation systems (mounting hardware) for mobile communications equipment and the "airbag deployment zones" in automobiles. Although many hardware manufacturers promote their products as being "airbag friendly" or "airbag compatible" the ultimate responsibility lies with the installer and/or end-user.

Any combination of installation hardware and mobile communication equipment that is not installed and positioned properly within the suggested dimensional parameters as defined by the vehicle manufacturer could potentially interfere with the deployment of the airbag(s). As a hardware manufacturer, Interactive Products Corporation can make suggestions and recommendations for the correct positioning and installation of our mounting systems. However, Interactive Products Corporation cannot control the ultimate placement and/or quality of the installation; nor can we control the type, size, style or placement of mobile communication equipment which the end-user chooses to mount onto, or with our products.

Manufacturers of public safety and law enforcement automobiles have provided, over the past few years, detailed information regarding the "airbag deployment zone(s)" in their specific vehicles. In printed material and via videotapes, car manufacturers have outlined and illustrated the area within each vehicle that is considered a safe zone for installing mobile communications equipment.

Note: Although airbag templates are available to assist in positioning equipment, they may not give you an exact image of the actual "deployment zone" of a rapidly inflating airbag. We strongly suggest you supplement the use of templates with the information provided by the vehicle manufacturer for a more accurate representation of available installation space.

~~~ WARNING ~~~

Do not install the mount system or position the equipment in the deployment path of an airbag. In the event of airbag deployment, mounting systems and/or equipment located within the airbag deployment zones can damage the airbag, prevent proper airbag inflation and/or become projectiles which could potentially cause personal injury or death. To determine airbag deployment zones and the area recommended for equipment installation, refer to vehicle manufacturer's manual. Interactive Products Corporation makes no warranties except for intended use and will not be held liable or responsible for any loss or damage, whether direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential arising from the sale, use or misuse of Interactive Products Corporation products or the user's inability to use such products.

ASSEMBLE PEDESTAL: (SEE PEDESTAL DETAIL):

1. Slide black tube with aluminum stud (3) into tilt & rotate mechanism (2), and tighten four-prong knob.

Note: Black tube (3) comes pre-assembled with 45º tube (3-1). 90º tube can be exchanged with 45º tube by loosening two-prong knob (9), removing 45º tube (3-1), and replacing with 90º tube (3-2) - your choice for positioning flexibility. (Pedestal height can be adjusted by loosening two-prong knob (9), raising or lowering telescoping tube, and retightening two-prong knob.)

ATTACH PEDESTAL TO VEHICLE FLOOR:

2. Place unit in a position that provides maximum movement of your passenger seat but still puts pedestal as close as possible to the driver. Play around with this until you are satisfied with placement.

3. Make sure there are no wires or obstructions before drilling holes (You will most likely need to remove molding and check under carpet prior to drilling & inspect under vehicle).

4. Once location is determined, use tilt & rotate mechanism (2) as your template; use a marker to mark drill holes. You may want to remove black tube from tilt & rotate mechanism beforehand.
