Maybe some day I'll talk about the fact that all these outlets are technically upside down.

With the loose receptacles topic, I think a lot of people also live in rented homes, apartments, etc. and the maintenance is rarely good enough that they would replace a loose plug if it was otherwise still working. I've lived in a number of places with crappy outlets, and after you pointed out that they may just be worn out it makes a lot of sense.

Man, all this time, I've been using these with tiny zip ties as a makeshift lockout method.

They are called pilot holes. Progressive stamping dies and other automated euipment use them to locate the metal precisely before it is cut or formed or folded or sheared.

Answer @12:35. Great video, though. Greeting from the UK (with the safest and chunkiest plugs ever) 🙂

@Technology Connections – I just absolutely love your scientific, but slightly layman's term explanation as to why US plugs has holes at the end plug connectors. The words/terms that you use in your video reminds me of Elon Musk and his team of Engineers. 🙂

This videos shows the patents & ultimately comes to the same conclusion you do:

As an electrical worker that travels almost every week for work, I can confirm those hotel light fixture outlets are the bane of my existence

If the holes were further down on the spade part of the plug it would weaken the plug spade and could cause it to break off. It would increase the chance that wiggling the plug back and forth would weaken the spade part.

Two possible uses for those holes I can think of (not saying this is what was intended) would be to save money on resources, imagine how many extra plugs you could make after making about a million. You can also put certain zipties around one of the holes to prevent it from being plugged in. Could be another layer to keep a toddler safe perhaps?

It can also be used for lock out tag out when a device is broken and needs repair so people know not to plug that device in

Ah, finally someone brings "meetings that should have been an email" to YouTube.

I kid, of course. Love your videos.

1980 built home had worn out receptacles in the 2000, but I suspect they were 20 cent units in 1980. basically every plug needed to be replaced some better then others.

More food for thought as i didn’t read all the comments. manufacturing purposes does make sense, however let me point something out that maybe a safety engineer at nec or nema. i say the original design of the holes were to minimize arc flash from plugging a plug into the receptacle. i remember as a child the sometimes things would arc from the receptacle but i haven’t seen anything arc in a receptacle since i was a child. the holes would absorb the heat and the arc reducing safety hazards.

While semi-minute, isn't the metal removed for the holes able to be saved? This, for every 6 or 7 plug sets without holes, you could create an additional plug set with holes just by having less metal in all of them?

The "don't stay put" critique is completely valid. Other socket designs don't have the same problem. And while it's good to know that it's not that common, it needs addressing

The holes can save on material costs. Take all the holes from 1000 plugs and how many more plugs can you make?

I have an construction grade extension cord with a locking mechanism that uses the holes! There is a small turn lever that seems to move a plastic pin to lock the cord in place. It's a pretty cool thing, and I must admit I find myself licking things in place even when it isn't necessary lol

I have seen plugs within hotel & dorm hallways get flagged by Safety Code Officers for not being heavy duty. High traffic areas require the plugs to be heavy duty due the excessive use. The plugs within the hotel or dorm rooms are not required for this. I'm not sure about airports tho.
