some kind of pedal

I don't know what else you might call a foot pedal, but I guess that's the slang name for it. Thanks, Jian.

I don't know; this could be from someone on our side. Swisher is a large company, likely with many layers of bureaucracy. I'm envisioning some worker being asked by higher-ups to have these words put on the product, then noting the redundancy (a pedal is, by definition, operated by the foot), and using the quotes to distance herself. In my fantasy world, at least.

I think the real issue is asking you to first step on the pedal and then to put it ito the receptacle. What about the next person who comes along looking for a pedal to step on?
