Childproof Receptacles

As part of national electrical safety month, the Electrical Safety Foundation International has posted an article about tamper resistant electrical receptacles. In that article they talk about how to properly childproof receptacles in your home, at school, and in the workplace.

During the course of my home inspections I have seen countless numbers of plug-in type electrical outlet caps. Needless to say I was quite surprised to discover that according to the published article, a Temple University study found that 100% of 2-4 year olds were able to remove those caps within 10 seconds!
