Overcoming a challenge: My smoke detector

She was so very good while she lasted, that is, my smoke detector. But when she finally died it was quite a challenge to replace her.

I knew that she was going when she started to beep intermittently.  Then I had to ask my Super to help me dismantle her because I was unable to remove her cover in order to remove the batteries.

After this was done my Super told me that my smoke detector was no longer able to work because it was written on the back that once the battery was removed the smoke detector was no longer operable.

So you see, I would never have known this because of being vision-impaired and accordingly I could not have known because of not being able to see this text.
