Nope give me your downvotes as you already have done.

However if even one person realizes that spending $10 on a GFCI outlet is better then then $1.50 death adapter then I'm happy. Peoples lives are worth far more then any dollar amount.

I didn't know this until just now. My mom lives in a house without grounded outlets and uses these adapters everywhere. I'll start swapping out some outlets for GFCI. Thanks for the info.

The better option would be to change your 2-outlet receptacle into a GFCI. That's the code-legal way to have an ungrounded receptacle be a 3-prong outlet

I don't down-vote. IDC about that. I use these things for years and I'm still alive. Honest question. How do they start fires? Pour water on it? Whatever is attached to it gets wet? My areas are dry. I know not to be in a puddle of water with electrical equipment.Get dusty/linty and a spark/arc? Its not like I'm gonna get a dude to come in during a pandemic to replace some of them right now. I know some electricians.. I kind of don't want to risk dying replacing these than a fire. I replaced light switches when I was like 15- thats my extent. Could I do it myself? Just turn off all the breakers in the house? LOL. I live in an older home. Its paid off and do not have the privilege of living in a newer home like all these rich SDers. lol

That would require that there is a ground wire run to the outlet. I did that where I could. Unfortunately, there is some old wiring from the 50s in certain parts of the house with no ground wire. That is a bigger problem I plan to fix some day.

Luckily, we have plenty of properly grounded outlets that we use for any appliance that requires it

Childhood flashback.


Now as an adult... I understand why the heck there is a 3rd pin. It never does anything but when it does... It is super important

You don't need to do expensive rewiring to replace an ungrounded outlet with a GFCI outlet. Check the other dude's link--you can install GFCI in an ungrounded receptacle.

A GFCI will protect against electrocution, which is a damn nice benefit.

It won't, however, protect against things like arcing and the related potential for fires.

It can be as simple as something like an appliance failing and then, when you touch it, the current runs through you rather than the mechanical ground. No need for water to be involved. There's a pretty famous case about a college professor that died from plugging a defective fluorescent lamp into one of these. Had it been grounded or on a GFCI, he would have been fine.
