It has an automatic reset that restores functioning following a power interruption. It is an in-line attachment for the power cord of any power tool or machinery to reduce the risk of shock, with a three-prong National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) 5-15P plug to connect to grounded outlets and hardware for wiring on the load side. It is compatible with 15-amp, U-ground, 2- or 3-wire outlets and plugs. This attachment has an impact-resistant case for durability and safety, a red LED indicator to inform users when the power is on, and test and reset buttons for periodic testing of the device.

If the flow is irregular, GFCIs interrupt the current. They help to prevent electrical fires and to reduce the risk of shock, burns, or electrocution. Designed to shut off power within 1/30th of a second, they are used with power tools, on construction sites, and near water sources in homes (kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms).Tower Manufacturing makes electromechanical devices such as ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs), appliance switches, thermostats, and controls. The company, founded in 1957, is headquartered in Providence, RI.
