Use the Safety Latch when not spraying!
- When you’re not spraying, engage the safety latch on your gun to prevent unintentional engagement of the pressure washer. Many pressure washer guns, though not all, feature a safety latch on the handle. This is a small lever that can be flipped horizontally behind the trigger to prevent it from being activated unintentionally.
- Never place your gun down without engaging this safety latch. And never leave your pressure washer unattended while running. If you have to walk away for more than a minute, turn the pressure washer off. It’s not good for your pump to leave it running while not in use, and shutting it off can prevent unwanted accidents.
