Product Spotlight: Child Be Safe Traditional Electrical Outlet Cover
From time to time, we like to shine a spotlight on some of our favorite baby-proofing products. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the Traditional Electrical Outlet Cover from Child Be Safe.
Why Would Someone Need an Outlet Cover?
Let’s face it, kids are curious. That is especially true when they are first learning to crawl and explore their world. Unfortunately, the walls of our homes are littered with highly dangerous electrical outlets that happen to be eye-level with out little crawlers.
Unless properly protected, an inquisitive tyke can easily stick something metal–or even their fingers–into these exposed dangers. Believe it or not, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), approximately 2,400 children each year are shocked or severely burned after sticking metal items into outlets. It is estimated that there are six to 12 child fatalities a year related to these occurrences.
For this reason, it is crucial that parents take the proper steps to childproof their electrical outlets. This is a critical step when it comes to the safety of your home.

Ultimately, the safety of a home is up to the homeowner. Each parent or guardian of a child needs to decide the right solution for their unique situation.
Many people choose to use outlet plugs, which are typically made of plastic and designed to fit into an open outlet. As another option, some specially designed safety outlets automatically close up when they are not in use. You’ve likely seen both of these products before. In fact, we sell them right here on the store. Don’t get us wrong, we aren’t promoting any of these products over the other. They all offer their own specific advantages.
As discussed, on the other hand are outlet covers. For those high-use outlets in your house, Traditional Electrical Outlet Cover from Child Be Safe is a great option.
