A white UV cabinet for keeping towels warm.

The product presents a high risk of electric shock as it is inadequately earthed
as it was not locked against accidental loosening. If the product is knocked
over or dropped, it could become live and cause an electric shock when
touched. Additionally, the plug on the product does not meet the requirements
of BS1363-1 the dimensions of the sleeved parts of the pins differed from the
metal parts of the pins. This resulted in a distinct step between the two. This
could cause damage to the socket and undue wear and tear to the sleeve. The
instructions were deemed inadequate, and some of the required
documentation and markings were not present.

The product does not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment
(Safety) Regulations 2016.
