GFCI 20 Amp Plug NEMA 5-20P. Portable GFCI works with power tools, extension cords, and lighting applications. Ground fault is the leading cause of shock and electrocution in the home. The problem is so extensive the National Electrical Code mandates the use of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters for all bathroom, kitchen, basement, and garage outlets in all new homes in the US. Even with these regulations, over 170 million Americans live in homes built before this mandate was put into effect, and are vulnerable to shock or electrocution from ground faults. The Superior Electric SE5010 GFCI is portable, and has built in circuitry to monitor electrical current and shuts off power in just 25/1000s of a second if a ground is present or if the power tool is hogging more than 20A current, required maximum preventing the tool from burnout. GFCI only, cord not included. You can install your own or replace existing power tool plug with this GFCI plug.
Reset button allows for test of GFCI every time you use it. GFCI will not reset if circuit is damaged or not functioning properly.
