    Q:on the outlets, what does it mean to be tamper resistant?
    by|Jan 12, 2022
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  There is a small piece of plastic, behind the slots, where the plug, plugs into, so children can not stick any objects into the slots. This prevents a child from becoming shocked.

      Answer This Question

      A:  The CAR-15-GFST is not a smart outlet and cannot be controlled from a phone app. Instead recommends the PD-15OUT which can be controlled from the Lutron App with a Caseta Wireless Smart Bridge.

        Q:What is the width of this item? Will it fit in an "Old Construction Outlet Box" ?
        by|Mar 16, 2021
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  The CAR-15-GFST-WH is 1.75 inches wide, for more measurements on this receptacle, please visit the spec sheet https://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/369964.pdf

        by|Mar 17, 2021

          A:  The installation sheet that is uploaded on HD website has all the dimensions of this product. It states that the width is 1.75" or 44.5mm. By code, old construction boxes are 2.75, so you should have plenty of space to install it. I'd run electrical tape around it just in case if you are installing on a metal box.

          This GFCI outlet is exactly what I needed for an outlet near the sink in my bathroom, and I find comfort knowing that if someone drops a hair dryer or clippers into the sink, the outlet will automatically cut the power. I installed it in just a few minutes, and there was plenty of room in the standard outlet box for this outlet to fit. I also like that there is a green light to show that the outlet is functioning properly, and a red light that shows when the circuit has been interrupted.

          SUMMARY: Great upgrade to our existing GFCI I wanted to replace the GFCI in our bathroom with a newer, tamper-resistant design and chose the Lutron for the installation. The unit has a nice feel and the installation was simple. The test and reset buttons are large and easy to operate. The indicator lights are bright and easily visible. SUMMARY: Met our needs perfectly.

          15 Amp. GFCI Receptacle By Lutron. Tamper resistant 125 Volts/60 Hertz. Unlike many receptacles, this one brings installation and testing instructions with large writing that can be understood and nice illustration drawing along with it. It seems to be very well made. It doesn't seem that hard to install, just remember to shut off the power before starting.

          This Lutron tamper resistant GFCI duplex receptacle with a 15 amp rating in white is an easy install if you are comfortable replacing a standard wall outlet. Make sure you kill the power at the circuit breaker to be safe and also to prevent damage to the GFCI circuitry. The outlet has a easy way to attach the wires, you loosen the screw and insert the wire into the hole and tightening the screw locks the wire in place. It's easy, clean and does a great job of holding the wire. If you are replacing a decorator style square outlet you will not have to pick up a new cover plate. Like all new receptacles it is tamper resistant and I have found if you insert the plug straight into the socket it works well. This GFCI outlet comes in 27 different colors. This receptacle comes with a one year warranty.

          GFCI outlets are designed for use in damp or wet areas like basement, bathrooms or kitchen to help prevent injuries or death from electricity. You can buy 15 AMP or 20 AMP. They immediately turn off electricity if load exceeds rating. There is a green LED light that when lit indicates that the power is on. Installation is very easy. You can use one or several in series. There is a test button to test the unit for proper operation and a reset button to restore the power if tripped. We installed seven of these outlets in our basement wall. Once the wall is painted and wall plates are installed they will look great. This one does not have an audible alarm but you can buy the one with an audible alarm from HD for about $20 that will sound an alarm if power is cut off to the outlet. These are ideal for outlets that are hidden behind furniture or an appliance. I bought one and installed it behind our refrigerator.

          The connection screws would not unscrew far enough to accommodate the wires, so the only way to install this was using the back connections/holes. Also, the top left prong hole is set awkwardly close to the top of the unit, making it appear substandard. Unfortunately, I decided to forego installing it at it's intended, highly visible, kitchen location because of the awkward prong-opening placement.

          This GFCI receptacle appears to be a good one. It has several desirable features. It is tamper-resistant which should help prevent small children from sticking things in it. It is self-testing and has indicator lights to show condition at a glance. It is very easy to test as well. No lights mean there is no power to it. Green light means it has power and is working correctly. Green and RED lights indicate that it has been tripped, and/or that there may be a ground-fault condition in the circuit. It is very easy to install, but not recommended for those with little to no knowledge of electricity. Instructions are very clear with good illustrations. It is also attractive, as GFCI’s go. The lack of colored buttons might help keep children from noticing it. We had a grandson that couldn’t resist any visible buttons, and we frequently found that when we had no power on a given circuit, we just had to reset the GFCI at the head of that circuit. Looks, good, works well.

          This first one I had installed in my bathroom kept tripping. The second one appears to be working well after 1 week. I also had 2 of these installed in my kitchen and no problems there. So one defective out of 4 total purchased.
