Child Proof Outlets - What Are They?


A child proof power outlet looks identical to a standard household power outlet and can be used just as easily. The outlet is slightly modified with spring loaded receptacle cover plates to make it virtually impossible to insert an object into a single receptacle. The spring loaded plate only allows an object to be inserted if equal pressure is applied to both of the outlet’s receptacles. These handy devices, also referred to as Tamper Resistant Receptacles (TRR) are a permanent and cost effective way to ensure the safety of your children.

How To Use


ince 2008, the National Electric Code has required all new homes to be outfitted with child proof power outlets. This is mainly due to the fact that they are the easiest way to maintain a safe environment for young children at home without causing any inconvenience to the rest of the household. For anyone who knows how to properly operate a power outlet, the tamper resistant receptacle will cause no difficulty whatsoever. To insert a plug into the power outlet, you must simply apply equal pressure to both sides simultaneously as you normally would with any other standard receptacle. This allows the tamper proof cover plate to open and for you to safely connect power to your device.
