Install a Trap Door on Your Electric Receptacle

Do you have an outdoor electrical receptacle you like to use? It’s probably where you plug in the stereo while hanging out, outside. It may also be the source of electricity for your outdoor lights, especially during the holidays.

Protect the Receptacles

To protect these receptacles, it’s important to install a cover in any area where dampness may be likely. A good option is a trap door that stays closed when the cover is not in use, but allows you to lift the trap and plug your lights in when necessary.

There are many innovative ways to keep outdoor receptacles dry.
