BUSTED!! That's a good cop. (Good eye, Bob!)
Do not pass GO, do not collect $200. Go directly to the Rohn catalog

Then write the following sentence 25 times (shades of Bart Simpson):
"I will always do what the manufacturer says." Violate at your own risk.
Like your Mother, we're doing this for your own good.
