In your home, safety is a priority. Think about all that you do to provide a safe home — whether you have child locks on your cabinets, barriers on windows or a fence around a swimming pool, safety matters. It also matters when it comes to your electrical outlets.

When you have small children, you know how curious they can be. They are very hands-on and love exploring the home. To keep your curious kid safe, consider tamper-resistant receptacles. These receptacles are designed to stop kids from inserting foreign objects like forks or paperclips into the socket. You can relax without worrying about your child every time he or she approaches a socket.

An electrician will tell you that you can use these outlets indoors and outdoors.
