Tamper resistant receptacles have a shutter mechanism that blocks access to the receptacle contacts unless a two prong plug gets inserted into the receptacle.
Tamper resistant receptacles are specially important for families with young children. The mechanism of the receptacle does not allow accidental contact of metal objects such as keys and hairpins with the electrical contacts inside the receptacle.
