What is the purpose of tamper-proof receptacles in home electrical safety?


Albert Smith, Expert of Electricians Service Team

Tamper-proof receptacles are specifically designed for households with toddlers to prevent electrical accidents. These outlets inhibit the passage of an electric current through an electrical wall outlet unless all components are energized simultaneously. By employing these receptacles, the risk of toddlers inadvertently causing electrical shocks by inserting objects into outlets is significantly reduced, contributing to childproofing homes and ensuring enhanced safety for curious toddlers.
