While you are on the topic. Sept 1999, UL released a warning about "KIC Corporation" GFCIs that do not meet UL requirements and have a counterfeit UL Mark. http://www.ul.com/about/newsrel/gfci091399.html

It awes me that there are people who would put themselves in such an unquestionable position of liability that they would easily be breakin' rocks in the hot sun for all thier time....

Where is "KIC Corporation"? If it not US based, I can understand the counterfeit ring. Recently, here in SC, counterfeit designer clothing got some people arrested. These clothes were made somewhere else and sold here to some unsuspecting people who thought they were getting a real deal. They should have remembered the old saying that if sounds to good to be true, then its probably not true.

Thanks for the info on counterfeit GFCI's.
