Could someone post a picture of a tamper proof receptacle?

One that I've seen has a sliding window over the slots for the plug prongs. There is no straight-in opening, you partially insert the plug and slide it sideways to align the cover with the slots, then push the plug in.

bobby pins do a much better job than screwdrivers. and they glow red when done correctly.
