The White 15-Amp tamper resistant decorative duplex outlet is a class A rated receptacle. This tamper resistant receptacle has a spring loaded shutter that will close off the opening to prevent insertion of small foreign objects, which helps improve child safety. The 15-Amp tamper resistant duplex receptacle can be easily installed in a typical wall switch box for both residential and commercial applications because of its shallow design. It is made of GE LEXAN 24IR High-impact resistant thermoplastic for long service life. Each end is slotted with Phillips and Robertson tri-combo screw heads for flexible and easy installation. As of 2008, the National Electric Code (NEC) requires that all new and renovated facilities must install tamper resistant receptacles only. Wall plate sold separately.

Product Questions & Answers
After just three years of use in our newly built home over half a dozen of these outlets have failed under very light use. Some completely stopped working after plugging something and needed to be replaced. A couple have caused weird electrical issues further down the line when something was plugged into them and had to be replaced, and a couple of them work intermittently and will disconnect if the cord/plug is moved even slightly. The failure rate scares me to the point that I wonder if they are a fire hazard and if we should replace all 60 of them throughout the house.
