Well, a tamper proof gfci is tamper proof. A non-tamper proof gfci is not tamper proof.

Words to live by. :D

Timothy, tamper proof will have a mechanical device that keeps small children and drunks from sticking fingers and paper clips in open outlets.

Check your local code. Tamper Proofs are not required everywhere yet. Although a good idea.
