15 amp 125 volt twist lock receptacle utilize a twisting method with a plug to establish a connection, helping you avoid the danger of loose plugs.
Tips: How does a locking receptacle work?
Typically, the male connector on a twist lock receptacle has a bent pin that can be inserted into the socket and twisted to lock it into place. To minimize the possibility of accidental disconnection, the plug must be pulled out by turning it in the opposite direction. Unless this procedure is followed, the plug of the electrical device or machine will remain in the socket and the current will continue to flow. Even if a twist lock receptacle is installed, the wrong cord can still trip, which can be dangerous if the cord is stretched or worn to expose the cord to live currents. In cases where the wires are just getting in the way of employees or passers-by, outlets should be reconfigured within the layout or at least securely anchored to the ground to minimize any potential safety hazards.
