Avoid startup while the bandsaw blade is released

It is advised to release the blade tension while a bandsaw is not used.

It is a simple sign, afixed to a magnet, that I move whenever I release or set tension to the blade.

The sign recalls that the blade is released, and covers the switch of the machine, so that I cannot miss it.

Here is the pdf of the sign I have designed, it is available in the download section :
