Q:OUTDOOR USE YES / NO
by|Dec 13, 2017
4 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Temporary outdoor use in dry weather should be ok like with extension cords when plugged into non GFCI outlets. For permanent GFCI protection, you want a GFCI receptacle. We use damp rated GFCI receptacles with weatherproof receptacle covers.

by|Sep 15, 2019

    A:  Not if subject to moisture. Not for wet use.

    by|Dec 30, 2019

    A:  We recommend this be used in kitchens, bathrooms, garages and workshops.

    by|Jun 29, 2019

      A:  I will be using my Yellow Jacket GFCI outdoors in a dry environment only, on a temporary limited term basis. Any outdoor use beyond that should be avoided since this is a plug-in unit rather than a hardwired GFCI in a weatherproof enclosure.

          i ordered this a few months ago from HD website and i started to use it as an on off switch for my commercial Coffey maker and then used it as a barker for my water pump in case of shorting out which is a good idea for all 120 volt plug in water pumps . in controlled tests i intentionally overloaded it to test is and worked to stop overloads. a Must for any application where GFCI is needed

          I have bought a few yellow jacket products before, their power cords and gang box were nice quality and this is no exception. This is a great little device for those of us who operate power tools outdoors and have ever been caught in the rain. Yes, it happens. I run my tools form non GFI outlets typically and this little adapter gives you the option to instantly increase safety by turning your standard outlet to a GFI outlet. there is literally nothing to do except plug this into the receptacle and plug your toll into the adapter. No wiring, work, etc. This is a must have for anyone who works with power tools outdoors

          Yellow Jacket 1 Outlet GFCI A convenient way to provide Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) ...
          Yellow Jacket 1 Outlet GFCI A convenient way to provide Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protection when only Non-GFCI receptacle outlets are available, this plug-in device will provide Class A (4-6 ma) personnel protection against ground fault current. Although the instructions make reference to operating at several amperes of Ground Fault current, later in the instructions reference is made, correctly, to the 6-ma trip level. Easily used by plugging into an available receptacle outlet, it is configured to permit use in a duplex receptacle without blocking the unused half of the receptacle. Intended for temporary use, upon plugging it into a receptacle outlet, it is necessary to press the “reset” button to energize the output of the device. A red indicator line is provided on the reset button, to permit visual indication that the device has been properly reset. A “test” button is provided to exercise the detection circuitry to verify that the device is still functioning. The “test” and “reset” functions are marked on the body of the device, but the molded lettering is somewhat difficult to read. Initially, the fit of blades into the output side of the device is rather tight, but should loosen up somewhat with use. It is not intended for use in wet areas, which will limit its use to those locations where an inside receptacle outlet or one sheltered from rain is available. While it can be used plugged INTO an extension cord, Ground Fault protection will be provided only downstream of the device. Rated, electrically, for 15 amps (1800 watts) at 120 volts, 60 Hz, it can withstand and overload of six (6) times the current rating. Environmentally, it is rated for use between -35 degrees C to 66 degrees C (-31 degrees F to 150.8 degrees F), which should be adequate for most applications. This device will be useful when the only source of power is non-GFCI receptacle outlet. As the device has a three-pin (Line-Neutral-Ground) configuration, use in an ungrounded receptacle outlet would require an adapter. Such use would not provide grounding but would still allow the GFCI protection to operate (the grounding conductor is not required for a GFCI device to function).

          I have an outdoor lamp post with a built in outlet and no way to swap it out for a GFCI outlet. I run a big Christmas light display and I wanted to use this power source but was concerned about it not being GFCI so this is the perfect solution. I simply plugged this into the outlet and tested it with a GFCI tester and it tripped as designed. After testing it I plugged in the Christmas light controller and I was in business. One thing to be aware of is that it trips if you cut power to it. This is not really a problem just as long as you are aware you need to reset it every time you plug it in or turn off power to it.

          What a smart innovative idea. A portable GFCI, 3 prong male and female, extension cord adapter. Being rated for a 120 volt circuit and 15 amps. This is good anywhere you can plug it into a 3 prong outlet. Use it, move it, or take it with you to protect tools or appliances or whatever electrical need you have. This would be great for older homes that never had GFCI protected circuits. It has a test and reset button. In case of a fault the top button will trip, showing a red line at the back of the button, see the last picture, look closely at the back of the white button. This intended for DRY usage, so if you think it will be susceptible to high moisture, either inclose it or don't use it in that type of environment. This is a great safety device that could save you life, what's that worth. If you are not sure, read the instructions.

          The Yellow Jacket Brand, 1-Outlet GFCI Extension Cord Adapter is affordable, portable, protection. I selected this GFCI to use with my portable Honda Generator that does not have built-in GFCI protection. I use my generator with all my outdoor power tools, saws, trimmers, blower, any 15-amp electric motor-powered tool or less. I would rather service and maintain one gasoline engine than multiple gasoline powered tools. Electric tools are more affordable, require less maintenance, and work reliably from season to season. The Yellow Jacket GFCI makes the perfect companion for my generator and the tools it powers.

          I was looking forward to an adapter like this that has surge protection and GFIC protection for temporary use where I don't have a GFCI circuit. However, I was disappointed that I had a difficult time trying to plug and unplug cords into this outlet. It does get very warm, even with nothing plugged into it. I like that it cuts the electricity off when a fault occurs in less than a second. For safety reasons, I like that this does not resume operation after it trips, it must be manually reset. I don't believe that this portable outlet was intended for permanent use as a hard-wired outlet is. It is rated for 15 Amps or 1800 Watts and gives 314 Joules surge protection. The description states that it is "easy to see if working properly". There is no LED light so the only way to check if it is working properly is to get very close to the reset button to see if you see a red line behind the cloudy button cover. I would imagine it would be easier to check your tool or appliance to see if it runs rather than try to see that small red line on the outlet itself. It would have been nice to have an illuminated LED when it is working so you can see from a distance if there is power.

          I use an extension cord for my outside smokers, so having a GFCI Adaptor for that extension cord makes me feel a lot safer. I connected a power strip into the GFCI adaptor and then plugged the adaptor into the outdoor outlet. Now, my pellet grill is plugged directly into the power strip, while an extension cord is used to provide power my other two smokers. (I only use ONE smoker at one time, so my circuit will not be overloaded). This is one SIMPLE step for greater safety! One thing I would recommend is for you to plug your plug into the GFCI adaptor, then plug the GFCI adaptor into the outlet.

          This is a nice product. I used this on a regular extension cord and it worked great. This will protect you like a regular GFCI cord. It is small but easy to use when you need it. It is small and compact to fit in a tool bag so you can keep it with you on the job. The test / Reset buttons are easy to get to and can reset easily. I will be using this all the time on jobs.
