What are tamper-resistant electrical receptacles?



Why require tamper-resistant electrical receptacles?

Nearly all appliances and accessories can only be opened with the use of a screwdriver (or a substitute item such as a nail file or kitchen knife). This prevents children and others who are careless or unaware of the dangers of opening the equipment from doing so and hurting themselves (from electrical shocks, burns or cuts, for example) or damaging the equipment. . Tamper-resistant receptacles are also used on electrical fittings in many public buildings primarily to reduce tampering or vandalism that may cause a danger to others.


What is the National Entitlement Card (NEC)?

The NEC is the National Electrical Code. The NEC’s mission is to provide practical safeguards from the hazards that arise from using electricity. It is the most widely adopted safety code in the United States and the world, and it is the benchmark for safe electrical installations. Tamper-Resistant Receptacles Meet 2008 NEC Requirement.
