How do these new tamper resistant receptacles work? Does Leviton plan on releasing a TR receptacle in the ACENTI line? What other support materials exist to help introduce these receptacles and code changes? Have all the states adopted the 2008 NEC code mandate? Does the new requirement apply to commercial buildings? I’ve had trouble inserting some plugs into the receptacles. Why doesn’t a vacuum cleaner, coffeemaker or other device plug fit easily into the tamper-resistant receptacle? Are tamper-resistant receptacles completely tamper proof? How do I recognize a tamper-resistant receptacle? Have tamper-resistant receptacles been in use before this mandate? Why are tamper-resistant receptacles considered a more reliable solution? I have always used plastic caps or shuttered wallplates to childproof my home. Why aren’t these measures considered effective? Why has the NEC® (National Electrical Code) mandated the use of tamper-resistant receptacles in new construction? Does Leviton offer a Tamper Resistant Surge receptacle?
