Too much erroneous or misleading information here. Short answer is yes, these will work fine. There are some considerations however. By code a kitchen is supposed to be fed by two 20 Amp circuits. This has been established code for many years. My 1961 house obeys this code either by simple circumstance, practical rational logic, or whatever. That said, modern code stipulates outlets in a kitchen that are _over a countertop_ are to be GFCI protected (as in, not the refrigerator if it can be avoided). So, how you would accomplish this is identify the first outlet over a countertop coming from the service panel and install a GFCI receptacle at that location. Use the load terminals coming from that GFCI receptacle to protect the remainder of receptacles on that circuit. Not every outlet in a kitchen near the sink need be a GFCI type, that's just silly. You certainly can use these 15 Amp Decoras after the GFCI. But they're not 20 amp? Not necessary at all. No kitchen appliance I've ever seen uses a 20 Amp plug and that was never the intent of the code. It's about having multiple food preparation appliances connected at the same time spaced out in your kitchen. The screw terminals on the back of a 15 Amp receptacle are designed to pass 20 amps to continuing outlets (even the load terminals on a GFCI I believe, too).
So your modern wired kitchen will typically have two GFCI outlets and a handful of standard receptacles like these 15 Amp Decoras. Read Less

Answer: 
Most electrical codes require 20 Amp ground fault outlets in the kitchen. If your kitchen outlets are controlled by a 15 amp circuit breaker and your local electrical code doesn't require a ground fault outlet, then this 15 amp Decors duplex outlet will work. Remember that 20 Amp circuits require #12 wire. 15 Amp circuits can use either #14 or #12 wire.

Answer: 
It will work in a kitchen but first you need to verify if the circuit breaker feeding the plug you are replacing is a 15 amp or 20 amp. If it is a 15 amp the above outlet will work fine. If the circuit breaker is a 20 amp you should replace with a outlet rated for 20 amps as the breaker is rated for 20 amps and will not trip to protect an outlet rated for 15 amps which could cause a fire.

It would if it were not placed near a water source, e.g., sink. For areas where there could be contact with water, purchase the GFCI model, this will be suitable. Check local code for minimum distance from water.

NO, these particular outlets are NOT Tamper Proof Receptacles(TPR). However, they indeed make TPR's and are required by code now in all NEW homes and Remodels. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
No design is "child proof", but there are "tamper resistant" versions. Tamper resistant ("TR") outlets are REQUIRED in most states for inspection. If you are planning to be inspected, you will probably not pass inspection if you use these. Check your state and local code if they're required, but since the TR versions are only marginally more expensive (about $0.20 more each), just get those instead.

It's not clear what is meant by "to replace a single outlet with a double one". The Decora 15 AMP duplex outlet is a two outlet device (two plugs can be inserted in the product). If you currently have an electrical outlet into which ONLY one plug can be inserted, then simply have that single plug outlet replaced with a "two-plug" (aka duplex outlet). This can be easily accomplished but ONLY IF the electrical outlet box within the wall is large enough to accommodate a "two-plug" outlet. Such an outlet box, in this case, would be a single gang box, which means the box will accept a duplex outlet (outlet accepting two plugs). To learn of these inside the wall details, the existing electrical outlet must be removed from the wall to inspect the "in the wall" outlet box into which it fits. Compare what is now in the wall with a single gang outlet box from Home Depot. Another consideration are the number of wire connections inside the current wall outlet box. Code only permits a certain number of connections. If you are not comfortable with electrical devices, it's best to consult an electrician. If the person asking the question means that they want to install two side by side duplex outlets (four plugs can be inserted) then the in the wall outlet box must be a two gang or larger box and must be large enough for all the wire connections that may be made inside the wall outlet box.

If I am understanding your question you have a single opening outlet that only one cord can be plugged into with a duplex outlet as pictured above. If this is the case turn off power, remove old outlet, check all connections and verify that there are no loose connections or aluminum wire. If the conditions are met then I recommend wrapping the green or bare copper wire around the green colored screw, the hot or black or other colored wire around the brass screw and the white wire around the silver colored screw. Put a couple of wraps of black tape (Scotch 33 is the best) around the outlet connection screws making sure all of the screws are covered with tape and reinstall the outlet in the wall. Put a plastic trim plate on and turn the power on and test the new outlet with a plug tester. If there is aluminum wire then you need to contact a qualified electrician and have them pigtail copper wire onto the aluminum in the proper way as defined by the National Electrical Code. Read Less

Hi Connie,
First off, make sure that the single outlet that is there is rated to be replaced with a duplex outlet such as this one.
In other words, if the existing single outlet is 220 volts, but not 120 volts, then it cannot be changed out in this instance.
However, it was a single 120V outlet, then you can upgrade to this duplex (2) receptacle. Turn the power off leading to the outlet at the Read More
Hi Connie,
First off, make sure that the single outlet that is there is rated to be replaced with a duplex outlet such as this one.
In other words, if the existing single outlet is 220 volts, but not 120 volts, then it cannot be changed out in this instance.
However, it was a single 120V outlet, then you can upgrade to this duplex (2) receptacle. Turn the power off leading to the outlet at the fuse/breaker panel, then remove the old outlet.
You should have a black, white, and a ground wire on it. Use a tester to ensure the power is off before coming in direct contact with the wires.
The black wires would go to the brass screw, white wires go to the silver screw, and bare copper wires should go to the green ground screw.
More information on how to change out a receptacle can be found in the guide linked below.

If you don't have this configuration, or you are unsure of this, always consult a local electrician in your area for more information.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CAUTION! Quality Control for USA Made Product doesn't exist! After removing my standard style outlets, and installing these new Decora outlets, I discovered that ALL 10 (in the contractors box) were defective!! The top screw hole for the cover plate had not been tapped, but was tapped on the bottom hole; ALL 10 were Defective. I even tried forcing the cover plate screw to start a tapp, but ended up stripping 4 cover plate screws trying to get them to attach. The screws with cover plates are weak compared to the metal used for the outlets. What a huge waste of my time! I even called Leviton to see if they could swap them out, and they said it would "take weeks, and I'd have to ship all the outlets" to them. Nice customer service! NOT! I have bought Leviton for years. This experience is going to make me think twice before buying anything from them again. May 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Self-Ground Clip Its bad model for professional Electrician ! Should have Self-Ground Clip Grounds the device in grounded metal box. Many inspectors it needs. And this model is not accepted with Electrical Code ! August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Outlets for the money Good outlets for the money. No defects in the 3 10 Packs I've bought for our home. Paired with an Squared off outlet plate they are a clean instal. There are better outlets but these are perfect for normal Residential use. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality The screw heads strips easily, the mark of extremely poor quality August 30, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase I wanted to update the old outlets throughout the house, so I picked up a couple of the 10 packs. Now all the outlet locations have a much cleaner look. Easy to install, any novice can do this July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love Them! I re-did all the electrical in my house and I wanted new outlets, I found these and I'm very happy with them! They are very well built and feel like they will last forever. May 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product These were easy to work with. Worth your time. The slim line and clean look make a huge difference. Price fair. Would definately purchase again. Note-these won't be around much longer as the Tamper Proof outlets(TPR) are now required in all new builds and remodels. Should you put these NON TPR (Tamper Proof Receptacle) in a remodel or new build you will NOT pass inspection. Keep this in mind before you do your project. Should you simply be upgrading or changing an outlet in your home however, these are perfectly legal as you are "grand-fathered" in, in most places. Also, if you have a metal box, PLEASE remember to wrap outlets on the outside of outlet with Electrical Tape PRIOR to you placing inside box. This is now REQUIRED. Hope this helps. April 15, 2016
