Protective Cover & Paper Guide
Black & Decker is committed to offering dependable, user-friendly products.
Our patent-pending Protective Cover delivers the security and peace of mind every user
desires. When closed, it simply snaps in place and covers the shredder opening, making it
difficult for children or pets to access the opening. It is also a simple visual cue that allows
you to see, from across the room, that your shredder is safe and secure.
To open the Protective Cover, simply press the button on the
front of the machine. This releases the cover and the front
button will pop out. The cover will then pop up. For use, lift the
cover to the open position. The shredder is now ready for use.
Once the Protective Cover is up, it also functions as a
convenient paper guide for added ease-of-use.
When not shredding, close the Protective Cover. You will
know it is secure when the cover snaps into place and the front
button returns to its original position.
Revolutionary Power Boost
Your Black & Decker paper shredder is equipped with Power Boost Technology.
Occasionally, if sheet capacity is exceeded or if the paper is not
put in straight, you may experience a jam. Black & Decker
developed Power Boost Technology that provides an
overdrive function to power through a paper jam.
In case of a jam, the shredder will stop automatically. To use
the Power Boost function, simply press the Power Boost button for half a second. This will
add the boost of power necessary to clear the jam. If the jam still remains, a flashing light
will appear. Please refer to the Troubleshooting section in this manual.
This product is designed to shred paper, staples and credit cards. It is not intended to
shred large paper clips, CDs, DVDs, continuous forms, adhesive labels, transparencies,
newspaper, cardboard or any other plastic other than credit cards. Using it for these
purposes is likely to cause irreparable damage.
