Throughout Dalton Trumbo's home in the suburbs, there are incorrect electricity receptacle outlets that take three-prong (grounded) plugs, that for the year 1959 should have been the (2-prong) non-grounding electricity receptacle outlets. Homes built before 1962 had most of their original 125 VOLT electricity receptacle outlets of the (2-prong) non-grounding type. In 1947, the NEC (USA) code first required grounding type (3-prong) receptacles for the laundry. In 1956 the required use of grounding type receptacles was extended to basements, garages, outdoors and other areas where a person might be standing on ground. From 1962 grounded outlets became required in American homes, because the NEC (USA) code was revised to require all branch circuits to include a grounding conductor or ground path to which the grounding contacts of the receptacle must be connected.
