Review/Giveaway: coverPlug – for children’s safety

Spread the love


Children are always trying to stick their fingers or toys into the plug sockets. Most stores sell those little plug covers that you can plug in, stopping your little one from electrocuting himself but the problem with those is that some older kids can get them out and they children still see the plug and are interested in it.

coverPlug is a newer invention designed to go right over the whole outlet to keep your children safe and to make them disinterested in the whole thing. It’s simple and quick to install and can be painted to match the wall colour.

There are two little plastic prongs on the back that fit into the ground openings of a double outlet. You just need to push it into place. It is removable by an adult and can be repainted if moved to another room. It’s also nice if you just have an outlet in your house you never or rarely use that stands out a lot from the wall and you would like to cover it up.

However there are a few issues.

  1. It won’t completely cover up your outlet if it was not installed into your wall right. If it sticks out unnaturally it may not cover it completely.
  2. It doesn’t cover up those special outlets used in kitchens and bathrooms with the reset and test buttons (for safety near water)
  3. It won’t work on those really old plugs that don’t have grounding holes. (The ones that have only 2 holes for each plug, not three)

Most electrical outlets will accept the coverPlug however.
