The Best Solution For Protecting Your Children From Electric Shock

Did you know that nearly 2,400 children are taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries caused by electrical outlets each year? That’s quite a surprising number knowing there are simple solutions out there to keep your family safe. Don’t become another statistic, find out how you can protect your children from electric shock by using tamper resistant receptacles, below:

Some Stats To Consider:

  • ⅓ of all parents with young children do not have childproof outlets in their homes
  • 86% of parents who attempt to childproof their outlets use plastic outlet caps
  • 40% of parents agree that plastic caps could be removed by toddlers
  • ⅓ of parents are not sure if their child’s daycare facility has childproof outlets

Why Should You Switch To Tamper Resistant Receptacles (TRRs)?

Take this fact into consideration: in a recent study by Temple University, 100% of all 2-4 year olds were able to remove one type of plastic outlet cap within 10 seconds. Still think they’re safe? Still think they’ll protect your child? We think not. Tamper resistant receptacles provide a permanent security solution against the insertion of objects such as fingers or toys into the energized slots. The only thing that can pass through the slots are cord plugs, and that’s how it should be!

Don’t let another day go by where your children are at risk of electrical shock. Call on the expert electricians at Lon Lockwood Electric today and we’ll tell you all about how we can help by installing tamper resistant receptacles throughout your home.
