It says "excessive" twisting, 90 degrees on the longest point to point is not excessive. Any manufacturer wishes to overstate precautions to prevent failure of their product, this is where common sense comes in. They said the same thing about automotive cam belts, which I never had a failure in 20 years due to mishandling.
