Tamper proof receptacles and 2008 NEC


Just a note for 2011 NEC:

While this has part of the code for many years:
406.4(D)
(3) Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupters. Ground-fault
circuit-interrupter protected receptacles shall be provided
where replacements are made at receptacle outlets that are
required to be so protected elsewhere in this Code.

This has been added :

(5) Tamper-Resistant Receptacles. Listed tamper-resistant
receptacles shall be provided where replacements are made at
receptacle outlets that are required to be tamper-resistant elsewhere
in this Code.

(6) Weather-Resistant Receptacles. Weather-resistant receptacles
shall be provided where replacements are made at
receptacle outlets that are required to be so protected elsewhere
in this Code.

Fancy term for a gfi with wr stamped on it that still needs to be used with a weather/water proof in use cover.
Basically another way to squeeze extra money out of all of us!

I can't put those bubble covers on my place, they suck, besides, if it is raining I won't be using the receptacles. I refuse. I have the nice thin durable WR not in use covers.

Do the WR receptacles have a stamp that is visible after installation?

A receptacle like this:

TR WR receptacles can be standard or GFI and in either case the letters will be displayed on the front in some fashion so the inspector can verify that you spent the required amount of money for then
