That doesn't prove that the T-slots have better retention; only that the newer stuff isn't as good as the older products.

I was in one of our lecture classrooms the other day, where they've got outlets underneath the deskts for laptops, etc. Went to plug mine in, and noticed that the faceplate on the outlet was missing. Wonder how many people have gone fishing with their hands to find the outlet, and gotten a surprise. There's enough room in the box, for your finger to slip in and make contact with one of the live screws.

Got a plug like that at work. Worst case I've seen.
Outlet is outside, Outdoor cover and seal long gone, Next to a customer entrance, where little tykes go by poking, Half the outlet is busted right off. And to top it off it was a Slater too O_O. Trying to convince the boss to let me fix it...for two weeks!

A bit of an update on my last post, of the outside outlet missing pieces at my (former):
-Yes the outlet is still there,
-There is still no outdoor faceplate on it (no plate at all)
-Yes the damaged outlet is still present, exposed to the elements.
-Yes I will try to send in a pic when I go back there

It must not be "in the budget" to fix it . Wait for lawsuit.

On a related note, my local church had an open house to show off the renovated school. They painted the walls, installed whiteboards, and things like that. But I noticed a missing coverplate for a light switch in the 2nd grade classroom... Mentioned to the teacher that she ought to get maintenance to take care of that before some kid finds the powerline...

Once I was following a locksmith to a job and he had to run around to the passenger side of the truck. The driver side door had a broken lock! smile
