English term or phrase: bypass
Hola, estoy traduciendo sobre carretillas elevadoras.

es un verdadero falso, por lo que la oracion puede no ser coherente. No se como tomar esos bypass/ed

Electric tools must have a three wire cord with ground and be plugged into a grounded receptacle, be double insulated, or be powered by a low-voltage isolation transformer.

They must BYPASS any ground-fault circuit interrupters to prevent electrocution hazards_

Never remove the third prong from the plug.

Where used, ground fault circuit interrupters must not be bypassed.
