release switch places the Cin-Eliminator into position; it can be adjusted
manually up or down by pressing the blue manual release button. The opening
is self-adjusting. To secure after use, press the green button, which
simultaneously activates the evaporator and returns the Cin-Eliminator to
its storage position.
You may log off if the green exit light is on over the evaporator. If
the red light is illuminated, one of the Cin-Eliminator requirements has
not been properly implemented. Press the "List Guy" call button on the
right of the evaporator. He will secure all facilities from his control panel.
To use the Auto-Unsub, first undress and place all your clothes in the

activate the "Manual off" override switch by flipping it up. When you are
ready to leave, press the blue "Shower seal" release button. The door will
open and you may leave. Please remove the velcro slippers and place them in

button. When the twin panels open, pull forward by rings A & B. The knob to
the left, just below the blue light, has three settings, low, medium or
high. For normal use, the medium setting is suggested.
After these settings have been made, you can activate the device by
switching to the "ON" position the clearly marked red switch. If during the
unsubscribing operation, you wish to change the settings, place the "manual
off" override switch in the "OFF" position. You may now make the change and
repeat the cycle. When the green exit light goes on, you may log off and
have lunch. Please close the door behind you.
Because hey, when it rains it pours (bad jokes, that is).
