    Q:Can this be used instead of a standard GFCI outlet?
    by|Mar 18, 2019
    5 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  No. GFCI protects against electrocution. These sockets just help in preventing little tiles from inserting objects into the socket as well as to protect against weather issues. They can be hurt if you use this instead of a GFCI. Ideally you have a GFCI upstream from these receptacles, else you risk electrocution.

          A:  Yes, as long as there is a GFCI outlet at a location prior to this location on the same circuit, or if the circuit is fed with a GFCI breaker.

          A:  No. No way. Offers no GFCI protection. Spend the extra $15 and get a GFCI outlet.

            Q:Doses it have holes for connecting electrical wires in back?

            Answer This Question

            A:  Yes, it does have holes in the back for electrical wires.

            by|Feb 20, 2019

              A:  I can’t say if there are holes in the back to put the wires in, but it absolutely has screws on the sides to secure the wires properly Any time saved by backstabbing a device is quickly lost when the wimpy springs inside loosen the connections and you spend hours searching the break in a room full of receptacles that don’t work because one of them isn’t feeding through My guys know that they are fired immediately if they are caught backstabbing a receptacle. It is an unacceptable risk Use the screws

                A:  Thank you for your question. Yes, the device does contain holes in the back for connecting wires.

                by|Jun 4, 2019

                  A:  yes

                  by|Feb 21, 2019

                  A:  Yes, but you should bend the wire over and tighten under the screw to create a better connection, and maximize the life of the receptacle.

                  by|Feb 20, 2019

                  A:  The holes in the back are only for #14 solid wire. If you're using #12 then you must use screws.

                          Building new home, needed weather resistant recepticles for our outside locations. Found these online @ Home Depot. They were a good price so ordered them & picked up in a local store. Shipped & arrived quickly. Customer service was great. These were easy to install, look good & hopefully last a long life time.
