Second pic shows a
Feed through method?

Since I always pigtail outlets, I have to ask does anybody use this "feed through" method on a 20A circuit? If the device is rated at 15A, what now is the remainder of the circuit rated?

I beleive this creates a weak link for downstream loads.

The tool seems to be geared toward the "Working Hot" issue. Looks like a good gadget for replacment purposes, if you have to work it hot.

Another solution in search of a problem.

At least, he has the receptacle right end up.

I just sent in my "request for freebie" I have a guy that works with me occasionally and this would be great for him. The concept of clean hands seems to escape him and usually white gfci's end up a shade of "dirty hand gray" when he installs them. This may help!

Seems like the company got their pictures backwards.

Apparently their "plug grip pro" only grabs the outlet by the grounding pins...while the normal plug grip (with the indicator lights)is what Joe posted.



You'd think the one with more features (like indicator lights would be the "pro" version.

How come the thing doesn't pull out of the outlet when you're pulling the whole thing out of the box or is it designed for pushing the device back in?

Are the plug pins slightly oversized to compensate for badly worn outlets?

My brother and I were discussing about this right end up on receptacles...After finding an old Black and Decker book with the images of the receptacles with the ground up..

But then why are receptacles still mounted with the ground down?

I always mount my receptacles horizontally with the grounds to the right. Yes it is a case of that is how I was taught so that's how I'll always do it.
