Keep little fingers out

Keep little fingers out

Electricity can often appear much like magic to children. By flipping a switch or plugging an electrical cord into an outlet, appliances come alive and lights illuminate rooms. There are electrical hazards in the home that children need to be aware of — including electrical outlets. But you can help keep kids safe by making sure your outlets are tamper resistant.

Tamper resistant outlets or tamper resistant receptacles (TROs or TRRs) have shutters that stay closed unless a plug with two prongs is inserted into the outlet. Both springs on the shutters must be compressed at the same time to allow an object to gain access. If a child attempts to stick an object in the outlet, the shutter prevents the object from entering and no contact with electricity is made.

Childproofing done right
