This particular model is extremely overpriced - more than 2x the cost per unit compared to Home Depot. The product itself is great, but research the price at your nearest DIY store first.

My house is a 1947 build with at least two major renovations so I purchased a couple of these receptacles to replace a couple of old worn receptacles that would no longer hold in appliance plugs, particularly the vacuum cleaner, and couldn't be happier. These receptacles are easy to install, hold appliance plugs firmly, and I really like the tamper resistant feature particularly with a newborn in the house.
I had installed a couple of Home Safe outlet covers over other receptacles but think I will replace them with these receptacles. I would also highly recommend the Leviton X7599-W SmartlockPro Slim GFCI Tamper-Resistant Receptacle for wet, or high use areas if you want to spend the extra $$$.

We had some older receptacles that were worn. I'm sure you know how it is, you plug in your vacuum cleaner and take a step and the plug falls out of the outlet. We also have a very adventurous toddler. These two things made me a nervous wreck trying to keep an eye on him while taking care of our newborn.

So I have ordered 8 of these so far updating first our family room, then our toddler's room. I love them so much I plan on replacing all of the floor-level receptacles in the whole house with these.

Pros-
*Tamper resistant = peace of mind with curious toddlers around
*Easy to install
*Well built
*Several colors to choose from to match your decor. (I have these in both brown and white)

Cons-
None so far.

Verdict-
If you need to update due to old outlets and may ever have children around, or are wondering about choosing these over those plastic covers to keep babies/toddlers out, choose these.

Bought this to replace an old electrical socket in my home, which is around 60 years old?

The socket works wonderful without a hitch. The build quality of this product is fantastic and the tamper resident feature is a nice addition as well. There were no issues with the old wiring and grounding through the socket I am pleased to say.

There are no cons to this product, I definitely recommend it. I will eventually replace all my old sockets with more of these.

If you purchase this socket, you will want to get one of their plates: Leviton 80401-W 1-Gang Decora/GFCI Device Decora Wallplate, Standard Size, Thermoset, Device Mount, White

Leviton makes a nice line of decorator receptacles and matching wall plates but if they are not packaged correctly they become useless. Leviton packages their colored switch plates in plastic, but not the duplex receptacles. It is up to the vendor to do this. Unfortunately, Amazon missed the mark on this and just threw them in the box to rattle around and get badly scratched. Rather than send them back I was able to make them look almost new with plastic polish. We were under the gun with a remodel. When a person spends $1.99 for a duplex receptacle then go ahead and toss them in the box, But if they spend $6 that should be a clue that these are for a high-end application and they should be slipped into a small plastic bag. I hope this was just an oversight and that it won't happen again.

this outlet was well-priced and just as described. no problems with the installation. looks great!

the tamper resistant tabs 'feel' funny as first, but they don't impede the use of the outlet.

A brown receptacle that you plug appliances into. Ben Franklin would have loved this. Thomas Edison would have loved this. A few words of caution; don't poke yourself in the eye with a sharp stick.

Worked well and felt solid, they were easy to install and so far the tamper resistant plug has held up against my two year old

I ordered these along with the decora switches and GFI receptacles to change out my white fixtures after a recent kitchen backsplash install. The outlets I received were not in bags, or any real packaging, and very scratched up. I had a replacement set ordered that night from Amazon, but the second set were just as scratched in better packaging. This is the first time that I've had this kind of problem with Amazon. I am a prime subscriber and order frequently from the site.

Price: Excellent product value.
This is a very well built outlet for the price. Ten minutes ago I installed a single unit from a ten pack purchased at homedepot. The harness brackets and casing unit is solid. The outlets come with a plastic protection shield built inside of the plug outlets to prevent toddlers from getting electric jolts from any foreign jabbing metal devices.
The unit is a good replacement for older outlets where the connection is loose. My vacuum cord was very lose so getting the newer outlet helped with a tighter fit.
