Professional Child-Proof Outlets Installation in Lakeland, FL

Installing child-proof electrical outlets will make your home safer and extend your outlets' lifespan by protecting them from dirt and dust. Child-proof outlets prevent anyone from sticking something inside an outlet and experiencing an electrical shock, electrocution, or burns. They also reduce your risk of electrical fires. At Mr. Electric of Lakeland, we take the guesswork out of outlet installation. We will complete a thorough electrical safety inspection to evaluate the condition, performance, energy efficiency, and safety of all electrical components in your home. We can then determine where to install child-proof outlets. Call us today to request an estimate or schedule the installation of child-proof outlets in Lakeland, FL.

  • Child-proof outlets are also called tamper-resistant receptacles, or TRR. They offer reliable, automatic protection from tampering or someone sticking something into the outlet that doesn’t belong there. They are installed with a spring-loaded cover plate that cuts off the slots. The slots are only accessible if someone applies equal pressure to each slot while plugging in an appliance or cord. This means that a child or vulnerable adult cannot stick foreign objects into the outlet and suffer from electric shock, electrocution, or burns.

  • Every day, approximately seven children suffer from electric shock and burns from sticking items into electrical outlets. An average of six children die each year due to their injuries from playing with electrical outlets. Child-proof outlet installation increases the safety of your home, whether you have children or have friends and family with children. Child-proof outlets also prevent dust, dirt, and bugs from getting into your outlets and damaging them or causing electrical problems. You should also install childproof electrical outlets if you have a vulnerable adult in your home, for instance, one who has been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s. The National Electric Code recommends installing child-proof outlets in common areas and certain rooms in buildings like medical centers, hospitals, hotels and resorts, and daycare centers. You should also install them anywhere a child can access your home. Our experienced electrical service technicians can guide you on installing child-proof outlets in your home.
