Glue gun can deliver an electric shock

Published: 7 January 2013
The authorities have ordered the withdrawal from the market of a glue gun that is liable to give users an electric shock.
The product, which is mains operated and has a black plastic casing and blister packaging, is model number GY-07, but the brand and barcode are unknown.

The danger results from the insulation being insufficient and the cross-section area of the core of the single-insulated mains supply cable being too small. The product, which is made in China, does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60335.
