There's a metal tab on these.

You're supposed to unscrew the face cover screw, then plug this in, and screw back on the face cover with the bolt going through the tab. Most sockets (even old two prong ones) should have the socket grounded.

If properly installed, these will work as grounded plugs.

These aren't meant for extension cords, etc...

As wonderful and as life saving as these are, most electrical devices that need proper grounding should only be operated for a short time on these types of plugs. Stay safe folks.

PSA / IANAL: The electrical code (NEC 2014) allows you to replace a non-grounded two-prong receptacle with a three-prong GFCI receptacle. No need to run a ground line. The GFCI function provides the same, and better, safety protection that the ground line normally provides. Don't take my word though, do your own research.

They take your safe 3 pronged device and make it to a less safe 2 prong device.

That 3rd prong is an earth ground, so when the device you are using has a short to ground, instead of using your body as the ground, it goes through the less resistant 3rd prong to short to ground.

Most prevalent use is on power tools.

"life saving" is debatable in this context Wink

There is a reason why the these ground lift adapters are sometimes referred as widowmakers.
