The SmartlockPro AFCI Outlet by Leviton helps prevent electrical fires sparked by damaged or pinched cords often caused when nails or screws are driven into a hidden wire.

AFCI receptacles are designed to detect a wide range of arcing electrical faults to help prevent electrical systems from being an ignition source of a fire.

Leviton is raising awareness to reduce the number of electrically-related fires, fatalities, injuries and property loss that happen each year.
