 +===== Position and stacking =====
 +
 +Always make certain to place the LaCie d2 on a flat, even surface that can support the heat output and airflow of a professional hard drive enclosure. For proper heat dissipation,​ the LaCie d2 is designed to stand on its stand. DO NOT place the enclosure on its side when it is powered on. 
 +
 +The LaCie d2 does not support stacking. Doing so poses a severe risk that it will fall. DO NOT stack other drives, enclosures, or equipment on top of the LaCie d2. 
 +
 +The warranty for your LaCie d2 will be voided if you:
 +  * Stack the LaCie d2 enclosure on another device.
 +  * Stack other drives, enclosures, or equipment on top of the LaCie d2.
