Not worth a crap(IMO).
I have not used them, but did live in a mobile home that had them.
Outlet quit working in the bedroom, opened it up and found one of the tabs broken. Very little slack, so I could not cut it out and install a box.

I agree. The only ones I ever came across were in mobile homes and RV's but the faceplates were a molded part of the receptacle. You didn't need to use a special clamping tool to wire them.

They are used extensively in manufactured housing and modular offices. I have found them easy to install wrong. I have been on many service calls due to the mis-installation of them. I usually replace them with an old work box and screw terminal device.

From the brochure it looks like a huge time consumer but it must be pretty fast. Just looks cumbersome trying to get that receptacle and romax aligned to press together with that special tool.

P&S also has a plug tail receptacle which I've never used due to the cost.

Now that is actually something I can get down with. I like the concept, now if only thet could come down a couple of cents...
