Tec 9: It's NOt code you idiot. Show me where it says. Outlet position is electrician preference or sometimes to indicated that it's a switched controlled outlet. NOTHING ELSE.
Telly Wall Install: Funny how people can get all riled up over a 2 minute video that is suppose to help.
MamaBare0218: Thank you for that concise explanation. I own a 36-year-old home, and have problems with my outlet holes being loose, and things falling out of them, so I understand Derek Rude's concern. We are slowly replacing them all.
MamaBare0218: Derek Rude's question is a valid one. Not everyone is a master electrician, or knows this is now code, especially us DIY-types. You may come down off of your pedestal anytime, and try to temper your arrogance. While you are busy insulting others, try fixing your punctuation. I won't tell you how it makes YOU sound.
1313rugbyfan: Because its code dipcrap listen to how you sound Derek rude such an idiot
Sk'2500: how am I supposed to cut the hole????? my walls are made of bricks not wood..
Kindyle Mason: If you were to drop a metal object and the plug was hanging out of the wall a little, the metal could hit both positive and negative pins completing a circuit and could blow a fuse or start a fire or something. With the ground pin facing up the metal will harmlessly hit the ground pin. I think it looks better not being upside down, I've never had a problem but that is why they do it.
Derek Rude: what is up with people installing power plates upside down with the ground prong at the top? you guys are professionals and you're showing it like that. if someone plugs a heavy ac adapter power supply into an upside down plug it just falls out or bends the prongs. i've been house shopping in new york and everybody is doing this lately...please explain the benefit of installing these upside down.
raincadeify: can't hear audio. ironic, considering the subject matter.
Sewell Direct: Very interesting. We have a similar model.
