I guess Leviton has solved the ground up or down debate. Has anyone here used these yet?

I think that I have read that if you mount a receptacle horizontally, the grounded conductor goes on top. They theory is something might fall between the cord cap and the outlet.............like a toaster or something like that! ha

the horizontal portion

But if you mount it horizontally, it won't be the horizontal portion anymore

Roger: I have seen a few of those around my area. Are they made to mount directly to a 1900 box?
