Abstract: Denote the countable infinite product of lines by *s*, let *X* be a separable metric manifold modeled on *s*, and let *K* be a closed subset of *X* having Property *Z* in *X*, i.e. for each nonnull, homotopically trivial, open subset *U* of *X*, it is true that is nonnull and homotopically trivial. We prove that there is a homeomorphism *h* of *X* onto such that projects onto a single point in each of infinitely many different coordinate directions in *s*. Using this we prove that there is an embedding of *X* as an open subset of *s* such that *K* is carried onto a closed subset of *s* having Property *Z* in *s*. We also establish stronger versions of these results.
