(Until December 21, 2013, Otis may ship flat & round traveling cables with the jacket removed or have pre-assembled plug connectors attached on either side for MRL and Hydro-fit elevators)

2.       The car side may not be shipped with the jacket removed or have any pre-assembled plug connectors attached.

3.       “Round Traveling Cables” may not be shipped with the jackets removed from either end.
