Shock Shield GFCI Plug Adapter
Product Code: RSW90033
The Shock Shield GFCI Plug Adapter converts any outlet to a GFCI outlet. 120VAC, 15 amps, 1800W surge protection. UL listed. For indoor use only.
The National Electrical Code requires GFCI outlets in kitchens, laundry rooms, pool areas, outdoor areas, bathrooms, and other areas in homes where water is used or is present near electrical outlets. Aquariums tend to be in living rooms, offices, family rooms and bedrooms where GFCI outlets are usually not installed. In the event of current leakage the GFCI will protect you by quickly cutting off the power supply.
Luckily, if you don't know how to convert your aquarium outlet to a GFCI, and you don't want to pay an electrician to covert the outlet, you can use a Shock Shield GFCI Plug Adapter to make your outlet safe. Just plug the Shock Shield into the wall outlet and plug your aquarium plug or power strip into the Shock Shield GFCI. This is the easiest way to protect yourself if there is stray current.
