  • Standard electrical outlets may be intriguing to young children, elevating the risk of tampering, which can lead to safety hazards. To combat this severe risk, let’s explore the features of a child-proof wall outlet. These additions work like traditional outlets with the added security of a protective covering, making them tamper-resistant without compromising on power.

  • Even with the protective cover, child-proof outlets offer the same sleek look as standard outlets. From a distance, they are virtually undetectable. However, up close, you can see that a child-proof wall outlet features an additional layer of safety with the spring-loaded cover used to shield the outlet from the hands of curious children.

  • Child-proof outlets have a spring-loaded, child-proof outlet cover to mitigate tampering. When plugging a device, the equal pressure achieved by both sides of the plug pushes the cover backwards. Without equal pressure on both sides, the cover does not budget, eliminating the risk of children being able to stick items into the sockets.

Child-Proof Electrical Outlets FAQ

If you’re new to child-proof electrical outlets, Mr. Electric of Tulsa will guide you. We strive to empower our community with the knowledge and resources to make safe and informed decisions for their home’s electrical improvements. As such, we have compiled common questions regarding child-proof outlets to get you started.

What Does Tamper-Resistant Mean?

Child-proof outlets are often referred to as tamper-resistant. This means the outlet has a spring-loaded child-proof outlet cover for enhanced security and protection. This cover only enables items to enter the outlet when both sides of the plug are applied with equal pressure, eliminating the risk of foreign objects entering the outlet.

Do GFCI Outlets Need to Be Tamper-Resistant?

Following NEC guidelines, 15-amp and 20-amp outlets must be tamper-resistant. This remains true even for outlets with existing ground fault circuit interrupter features. GFCI outlets combat ground faults in the circuit, whereas tamper-resistant outlets protect against the insertion of foreign items.

Are Child-Proof Outlets Also Baby-Proof?

Child-proof electrical outlets protect children of all ages, including babies. The spring-loaded cover can only be pushed when plugs are applied with equal pressure. This makes it nearly impossible for a child or baby to tamper with the outlet. However, despite the added safety features, babies and young children should never be unsupervised around outlets.
