        Q:Do you need to shut off power when fastening tab to wall plate mounting screw ?
        by|May 20, 2022
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello Nemo, thank you for your question. No, you do not have to turn off the power but Grounding continuity must be maintained. Consult a qualified electrician to determine whether the cover plate crew is grounded • Grounding protection will not exist if the adapter is improperly connected • Always attach the green grounding tab to a grounded wall plate screw • Do not use with extension cords or ungrounded 2-slot outlets.

          Indoor Use Only
          I’ve been looking for a polarized grounding adapter to use outdoors. I stumbled upon this one during my search. The description doesn’t state whether it’s indoor only or indoor/outdoor. I looked in the questions and found that tech support stated it was outdoor rated. I also didn’t know it couldn’t be used with extension cords. Received the product in the mail and the back clearly states ‘Use Indoors Only’. Wish I would of known before ordering.

            This plug is just what I needed. Came as a 2-pack in contractor orange. I live in an older home and have a few older 2-prong outlets. I needed to add a surge protector with extra outlets to an area where I only had the two prong outlet. All surge protectors have 3-prongs so I got these as an adapter to fit my old outlet. Super easy to use, perfectly fits, polarized & grounded for protection. This is an easy fix to the old two prong outlets. Instantly converts a 3-prong plug into a safe 2-prong plug. No need for an expansive electrician to replace anything. This two pack is very affordable and does the trick. ** In order for the ground to be active, an outlet’s wall plate screw has to be removed and secured though the plug’s metal tab. This will complete the grounding and secure the plug onto the outlet preventing it from popping out/unplugging.

            These GE polarized, receptacle adapters are made well and make a snug connection in a receptacle outlet and with a cord plugged into them. My home was built with all grounded electrical receptacles. Where I use these polarized grounding adapter plugs is for my holiday lighting displays. All my exterior extension cords are three-prong grounded type. The holiday lights are however only two prong types. When plugging into the end of a two-prong light string, these adapters allow a three-prong extension cord to be attached and at the end of the light sting. More two prong lights can then be plugged in the extension cord. I actually do not recommend using these adapters if the receptacle outlet box is not grounded, because these adapters will defeat the ground path intended to prevent electrocution when no actual ground path is present. Rather than use these receptacle adapters when there is no ground at the receptacle box, it is better to install a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) receptacle and label it: "No Equipment Ground." A grounded receptacle outlet is designed to safely carry hazardous electrical current to reduce the electrocution hazard to people. A GFCI can still detect stray electrical current and shut the flow of electricity off before it becomes hazardous, even when not connected to a ground at the outlet box. A three-prong grounded electrical appliance can then be plugged into the GFCI. While the three prong appliances will not be grounded, the GFCI will cut the power if electrical current does not return through the neutral connection to protect a person from electrocution. A GFCI is a safer 3-prong retrofit for circuits without an actual ground.

            I love these plugs. I can't really plug anything in without using one. Our house plugs are just to big for my plug ins.we changed the switches but didn't really help I look over and my plug fell out of wall socket after a bit. I use one of these and I don't need to worry or keep checking on my chargers etc. I shopped around even went to lowes they didn't carry them. I thought that was odd. So finally found them online at Home Depot. Strong well made plug.

            Just an adapter that was needed for extention cord. Nothing that really requires a rating, it just works.
