What is a Tamper Resistant Outlet?

Tamper Resistant Outlets have been required per National Electrical Code since 2008 – and for good reason! Can you relate to that terrifying image of your little one moving towards an outlet with a pointy object? If your home has tamper resistant outlets, you can breathe a bit easier.

So how do these work? Tamper resistant outlets contain shutters. The shutters remain closed if an object is inserted into only one side of the receptacle and open only when a 2 bladed or grounded plug is inserted. If you do have tamper resistant outlets, you may find it a bit tricky to plug things in at first. Make sure that you push the plug straight forward. If you are still having difficulty inserting the outlet, examine the plug itself, as that is most likely the issue.

We ALWAYS remind clients that even as products develop and make our lives and children safer, nothing is more effective than supervision!
