How many times have you seen crooked outlets in your home? I know they drive me crazy! It could be that they were installed that way. Then again, it could be that the outlets were not securely fastened to the junction box. Then there's the brute force method, where someone pulls an extension cord out the the outlets from six feet away. This muscle move can twist the outlet, if not damage it.
To me, a crooked outlet or switch is like having a finely painted picture hanging crooked in your home. It only takes a few minutes to fix the problems and with these quick tips, you'll straighten them in no time.
