Tamper Resistant Receptacles - Important Read

Home Inspector with Inspector Mike #2116

One of the easiest ways to protect your children or grandchildren is to add TR (Tamper Resistant) Receptacles.

Here is a video that explains these receptacles. http://www.childoutletsafety.org/video.html

Here in central Ohio Northwest Electric and Plumbing (OH. Lic. #26286) installs these for as little as $10.00 each. Yes there is a minimum charge. Or you can replace these yourself if you have a working knowledge of residential electric.

You could as a Realtor offer to have these replace for your client to help make a sale. As you can see it is not pricey.

You can reach Northwest Electric and Plumbing at 614-214-1487.

I didn't even realize that these existed!  Thanks for the info.  I'm going to suggest the tamper-resistant receptacles to my clients with young children.

This is important. Please pass it allow to everyone you know.

These are inexpensive and hard to bypass.

You are welcome. Don't forget about GFCI protection also. Adding GFCI's is also simple.
