Be particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids could damage the stomach or intestinal wall.

  2. Place the date battery in the battery holder with the negative terminal (-) facing up. Then replace the battery holder into the wireless controller.
