Making your home safe for the entire family is critical. From surge protectors to circuit interrupters, there are many different devices you can have installed to ensure that everyone is safe in your home at all times. One of these great selections is a tamper-resistant outlet.

These outlets, which are also known as tamper-proof receptacles, are made for the parents of toddlers or young children. If your little ones are curious, you will eventually see them attempt to put something into an outlet. They feature plastic shutters that will remain in a closed position until they are activated at the same time by a plug. This means that it will not work if your child is sticking a toy or utensil in the outlet. Furthermore, building codes recommend that you install these outlets throughout your home during construction.
