Lifting Heavy Objects

Just today I was mounting a 24-inch Dell monitor on a kiosk that we use for trade shows. I've opened this box a hundred times, but it's the first time I really noticed the helpful line drawing created for my own safety. Apparently, these monitors are considered to be heavy in Mexico where they are manufactured. But don't worry. The solution is to get two children to carry the monitor for you--problem solved!

Are they simply carrying the monitor? The arrow seems to indicate that they are to heave it skyward.

Two children with strong quads! Geez, their legs are bent at a 60 degree angle. I wonder how long they can hold that.

Of course, if it was a VGA monitor, it would be three feet deep and weigh approximately 1250 pounds.

It kinda looks like their each pulling it toward them, like tug of war or something. But then one of them is gonna fall backward and get hit with a monitor and probably hurt. And I don't know what the upward arrow would be for either, so yeah, you're probably right. You're supposed to get some kids to lift it for you. I concur.
