Tamper Resistant Receptacles

According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International, each year approximately 2,400 children suffer severe shock and burns when they stick keys, pens, paperclips and other small items into electrical outlets.

Outlet covers or caps are a common tactic to prevent this from happening, however studies show this is not an effective solution.

Instead, you might consider tamper resistant receptacles which are equipped with spring-loaded receptacle cover plates to close off the opening slots. To learn more, click here.
