Fire prevention? :rolleyes::rolleyes:

What happens when there is a glowing fault that the AFCI doesn't detect? Will Leviton et all be on the hook for false advertising?
Nope. The package just says "helps prevent" not eliminates; the weasel wording will protect them.

I understand that. But the big, bold "Fire Prevention" letters are purposefully designed to be attention getting. They are also very misleading to the average consumer who will buy this device at a retail store like HD and not have the slightest clue how worthless it really is at "fire prevention."
