Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), RMC International, Ltd. of Denver, Colo., is
offering free replacement wick holders to owners of its model CT-1200 kerosene heaters.

safety mechanism from extinguishing the heater.

model number CT-1200 appear on an identification plate on the front of the heater.

nationwide from June to November 1994 for approximately $110 under the brand names
Dyna-Glo, Envirotemp and Keroheat.
