Electrical Repair & Installation
Common Home Electrical Projects Provided by St Paul Handyman
Also known as tamper resistant electrical receptacles, these new electrical outlets have "spring-loaded shutters that close off the contact openings, or slots, of the receptacles. When a plug is inserted into the receptacle, both springs are compressed and the shutters then open, allowing for the metal prongs to make contact to create an electrical circuit. Because both springs must be compressed at the same time, the shutters do not open when a child attempts to insert an object into only one contact opening, and there is no contact with electricity. Tamper- resistant receptacles are an important next step to making the home a safer place for children." Source: National Electrical Code® (NEC®)
