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.

I had a car charger installed by Mike from Flat River Electric. Mike and Heather both worked to accommodate my schedule, from doing a walk through after business hours to an early project start time to minimize time off of work.

Mike was extremely friendly and professional during the process, and even remembered my home from a project he had done four years earlier. To install the new breaker and run the line, Mike went out of his way to avoid cutting into my ceiling. As a result, the room with the breaker panel looks exactly the same as it did before, and the project was finished under the quoted price.

I couldn’t be happier with the work that Flat River Electric did. Everything was done on time, under budget, and looks great. This was my second time using Flat River Electric, and I won’t hesitate to call them if I need a third.

Mike and his apprentice promptly took care of my electrical issue. They were professional and polite. Although they were very busy with more lucrative projects, they made time to fix my issue.They did not make me wait days although they could have. I will call them again if needed.

We recently used Mike and his team to replace some outlets in our home and replace all of our smoke detectors. They were in and out very quickly and did a great job. Very easy to work with. I would highly recommend them.
