What Does a Tamper Resistant Receptacle (TRR) Do?

Posted in Home Safety by ESFi

Tamper resistant receptacles (TRRs) provide a simple, permanent solution for preventing common childhood shock and electrical burn injuries caused by tampering with a wall outlet.

  1. Unprotected outlets are a hazard for small children.
  2. Serious injuries result when common household objects are pushed into the slots.
  3. TRRs replace standard outlets to protect children from injury.
  4. A built-in shutter system prevents objects from being inserted.
  5. Plugs can still be easily inserted when equal pressure is applied to both slots.
  6. Unlike removable outlet caps, TRRs provide a permanent solution.
