  • A child-proof outlet, also called a tamper-resistant outlet or tamper-resistant receptacle (TRR) is a specialized safety outlet that prevents items from being stuck inside. Approximately 7 children each year are injured, and six die resulting from electrical shock or burns from sticking objects into outlets. Installing child-proof outlets is a simple, cost-effective, and reliable solution to prevent injury or death. Our electrical service technicians can install child-proof outlets anywhere you have standard outlets installed.

  • Child-proof outlets look like regular outlets but are covered with a spring-loaded plate that blocks off the slots. If equal pressure is applied to both slots, the cover plate opens and allows the plug to make contact. The cover plate stays closed if there is no simultaneous pressure, such as when a child tries to stick something in an outlet.

When and Why Do You Need a Child-Proof Outlet?

The National Electric Code requires that child-proof outlets be installed in schools, doctor’s office waiting rooms, public buildings, places of assembly, daycare centers, pediatrician’s offices, patient rooms, public bathrooms, playrooms, public areas, and guest suites in motels and hotels, and public areas in hospitals and medical facilities.
