Looking all over the internet has given me some conflicting answers about whether or not to use these. I know 2 prong outlets are not grounded, but is it true connecting the tab on the adapter under the screw of the outlet will effectively ground whatever's plugged into it?
My only option is to plug both my computer and monitor into the same outlet, both using a 3 to 2 prong adapter. Will I be able to fasten the tabs on both the adapters under the screw? Would using this setup even be safe? Surges in my house are not common (knock on wood), so I guess my main concern is either starting a fire and/or drawing too much power from the outlet and harming my PC. What do??
