How do you use a plug lockout device?

A plug lockout device keeps plugs from being inserted into an outlet, thus preventing an electric current from re-energizing a piece of equipment while under maintenance or repair. This protects workers from electrical shocks. 

To use, open the plug lockout and insert the plug inside the case. There are holes on both ends of the device that fits the diameter of the cord. Close the plug lockout over the plug, secure with a padlock, and tag accordingly. TRADESAFE offers medium and large plug lockout devices that can store up to two plugs.
