The Shock Shutter is an electrical outlet cover with a built in Tamper Resistant (TR) shutter system. These things really work! These shutters only open when something is inserted into both slots in the power outlet such as an electrical cord. When a common household item such as a paper clip, pin, or key is inserted into only one of the slots, the shutters do not open, preventing serious and possibly fatal injuries from electrical shocks.
Here's what Shock Shutters can do:
~ Prevent injuries caused by electrical shock from sticking small objects into the slots of electrical outlets
~ Quick and easy to install
~ Does not require shutting off the circuit breaker
~ Can be installed by anyone. No need to hire a licensed electrician
~ It is much cheaper to install than installing TR receptacles
~ Meets NEC’s 2008 tamper resistant recommendation which is now required by most states
~ Made in the USA
I was really surprised at how well they work. Now mind you I did not like the idea of testing this out, but I really wanted to know for myself. They work! No shock! No zap! Nothing! I could not put anything in any one of the holes. It just would not let me. but, when I went to plug in a cord, it was easy to push the cord in and it stayed put just like any other receptacle! I am impressed!
No more messing with those small plastic covers or those special plates that cover the whole outlet that don't always stay in and some kids can get out quite easily. These things are secure and will not allow anyone to poke anything in them they shouldn't.
