Maybe some day I'll talk about the fact that all these outlets are technically upside down.

Why should the power connector be any better designed than the horrible Edison screw fit light bulb connector. The UK uses far better designed electrical connectors, but has recently seen the introduction of screw fit light bulbs. These horrible things work slightly better with low current LED bulbs, but were also used for higher current light bulbs. Unlike their uk bayonet fitting counterparts, the screw bulbs tend weld into the socket, as heat melts the central solder connection. Worse still, the heat also distorts the screw part of the fitting, leading to a cross threaded insertion of the bulb. Attempts to rectify this problem by unscrewing the bulb, usually breaks the glass part of the bulb away from the connector, leaving it trapped in the light bulb holder. Worse still, on used bulbs, the glass part may actually shatter when an attempt is made to unscrew the cross threaded fitting. This type of screw connector are invariably of a cheap and nasty construction, which appears to be echoed in the cheap and nasty power socket assembles and associated plugs.
In the case of power plugs, the solid copper connectors used in UK plugs are far superior, particular where their other safety features are taken into account. All such plugs contain a fuse, rated to the appliance, and the power pins have a partial insulated sleeve that protects the user from exposed part of the pin during insertion into the mains socket.

The holes are there to put a little lock on it if you want to prevent someone from using that particular equipment.
Its no joke and I have seen it being done. They are those little locks that you buy for suitcases.

I have an outdoor timer (meant for Christmas lights or similar), in which there are two standard receptacles which feature a locking leaver for each. Insert your lights (or extension cord) and flip the lever, and you can NOT remove the plug from the timer. This is a modern device, not something say pre-2000.

Interesting as always – thx – I had always heard the holes were there so you could put a padlock or zip tie on the plug to make sure it didn't get plugged in!

Red outlet uses those holes. But those are intented for hospital only

Everytime I go to Europe its the same thing. Anything I plug on the wall falls out fairly quickly and with just plain old gravity. Also happens with direct plugs not just adapters. So yes, I can testify its hotel's fault, not our US plug system.

I can imagine a child resistant outlet that uses the holes to prevent children from easily pulling out a plug.

A floating ball bearing detent (similar to what's used in many folding pocket knife blades) in the contact would work without causing undue bending on the plug's forks. However, the added securing strength wouldn't be enough to mitigate the additional manufacturing costs.

You can tell this guy is a lib leftist. How do I know you ask?
Well I find that with liberals you could cure cancer and do just about anything to make them happy and instead of being grateful and appreciative they instead are like: "well you could have cured that cancer before it killed my grandmother". I found out that it doesn't matter what topic it is or what you do with the left it is never enough and will never make.them happy. This guy has electricity when others do not… yet still bitching and complaining always unhappy.
Tell me how I am wrong about this example or any examples I'll wait..lol

Perhaps they are there so you can push an extra cable through each hole and run another appliance without a plug.

Question: Why do some outlets have a horizontal slot, like seen in this video? I've never seen any plugs with a horizontal blade, at least not in my home.

It's only dangerous to rip an outlet apart if it's hooked up..just saying

Exemplari Media 15/10/2021 - 10:31 PM

One thought about these holes is that a person could insert a tiny lock through one of the holes to ensure that the device cannot be plugged in. Why would you do that? Not sure. Maybe to keep a child from plugging something in that you want left unplugged.

Yeah. Like no one does that.

Anyway, great video. Good information.

The other thing weird about US plugs, is that the wall sockets don't have an on/off switch. They are just live all the time. And don't get me started on why in the US light switches are on in the up position and off in the down position. And why 120v? It's 240v elsewhere. It's almost as if the US wants to be opposite land.

I used to have a lamp that would shock me when i was screwing in a lightbulb and now I know: it was wired backwards lol

Electricians use them in a pinch when they need power in certain situations. Just push a wire in each hole and twist em to keep em there.

Yes In old homes here in Canada it's likely the recepticals have warn out an some may get loose. It's very important to have these checked every 10 years if used frequently.
