Safety Movie is warning about use of 2 pin plugs with extension narrow slim sockets

Ever wonder why your plugs have two different size pins? I found this video that shows you what could happen if you were to use an older extension cord plug that still had two equal sized pins. Here in Philly, you can still buy these older cords in some mom and pop hardware stores. It is good to look out for them.

This video demonstrates that 120 V AC can be exposed to human contact if 2 pin plug is fitted incorrectly to slim width extension leads.

This can be very dangerous with children at floor level near where 2 pins are easily available.
