Child Proof Outlets

West Michigan’s elite electrical contractor

West Michigan’s Elite Electrical Contractor Since 2009!

Today’s homes are required to have a certain number of outlets installed in each room. If your home was built before 2008, there is a good chance that the outlets that were installed are not Tamper Resistant outlets. One of the best way to baby proof your home is to have a licensed electrician at Flat River Electric change your current outlets to tamper resistant outlets.

With the shutters closed tamper resistant outlets are designed so that a child is not able to insert a metal object into the outlet. Tamper Resistant outlets work like a normal outlet when equal pressure is applied to both side of the plug at the same time. When there is not equal pressure applied to both sides of the plug then the shutters remain closed which prevent foreign objects from being inserted and causing traumatic electrical injury to children.

Contact us Today!!! to have a trained electrician come out and replace your existing outlets with new tamper resistant outlets to prevent your children from inserting metal objects into outlet and to eliminate the plastic inserts that many people install in the outlets that are a choking hazard.

For just a few dollars per outlet, pennies more than traditional receptacles, you can bring your home up to code and make it safer for your family by having child proof outlets installed. In fact, tamper proof receptacles have proven so effective that as of 2008 the National Electrical Code has required the installation of them in all new homes. Without child proof receptacles, your child is at risk of electrical shock, electrical burn and other injuries.

    Had a 45-yr old kitchen ceiling light fixture that began to flicker. Flat River came out the next day. Caleb anticipated all potential fixes and came totally prepared. We decided a new fixture was needed. Somehow he anticipated what we might like and had put it on the truck. It was perfect. He even had a brown switch plate with a dimmer, no less. Caleb and Sam were very efficient, friendly, and professional. Mike is lucky to have them as a crew for his company.

    I purchased a new modular home just over a year ago. I was having an issue with an LED light that was in my stairwell to the basement. The light would not shut completely off and had a low glow because the light was still getting a little power somehow. I had the house manufacturer out three times over the last year and they could not fix the issue. I was tired of this light still on after a year, so I called Flat River Electric. They came out the next day. Within 30 minutes that had the issue fix. They were polite, professional, cleaned up after themselves. I would 100% use them again and I will in the future.

    Caleb and Sam were superb! Arrived early, quickly understood the complexity of the job, and worked late to finish it. They were courteous and respectful. Totally cleaned everything up when done.I am very detailed oriented and Flat River, Caleb and Sam exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend!
