Child Proof / Tamper Resistant Outlets
When it comes to childproofing a home, one of the most common items that parents add to their list of things to shop for are outlet covers; however, there may be instances in which they need some assistance in choosing items that children won’t be able to remove as easily from an outlet. Due to the fact that children are able to easily get shocked and burned if they are able to somehow place items into electrical outlets, it’s important to be able to choose the best possible kind of outlet cover.
*Outlet plugs are available in multiple shapes and sizes and are also inexpensive and great for traveling. One downside, however, is that these specific items can also be a potential choking hazard due to the fact that children are able to learn how to remove them and place them into their mouths. Furthermore, parents can sometimes forget to replace the outlet plugs themselves in the event that they end up using the outlet for any reason. If you are considering investing in outlet plugs, think about purchasing ones that are too big for a child to choke on, always replace them once you use an outlet, don’t use any that are colorful, and test the plugs after they are installed to ensure that they are difficult to remove.

Do you need child proof electrical outlets?
When it comes to childproofing a home, one of the most common items that parents add to their list of things to shop for are child proof electrical outlets. Due to the fact that children are able to easily get shocked, it’s important to be able to choose the best possible kind of outlet.
A sliding or self-closing outlet cover is another popular item that is able to be easily installed by removing the screw that holds the current cover plate, then replacing it with the sliding outlet cover. In the event that a parent or child unplugs something, the cover will then automatically close over the electric socket, thereby making the outlet safer by getting rid of the potential choking hazard of an outlet plug.
Box outlet covers are another great option to consider, as they are available in multiple sizes to help cover small or large electrical plugs, as well as the outlet itself. These are also great for items that are always plugged in, and they also keep a child from being able to play with a plug. Furthermore, the covers are easily able to be removed in the event that the outlet may be needed.
