The Importance of Using Power Strip Covers

Unlike electrical outlet covers, power strips or bars are more difficult to baby proof.  Most homes have bundles of cords around the TV, computer, and kitchen areas that can cause serious harm to young children who visit the area unsupervised.  These cords bundle up on the ground and in some cases, children will go to the area that plug the cords out or play with the electrical outlet.  The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates over 2,000 children experience electrical shock or burn injuries from poking around the outlets or plugging on cords.  They even report over 10 child deaths each year related to injuries near electrical outlets or cords.

Having electrical cords bundle up together creates serious threats to young children in the home.  To baby proof your home, we suggest choosing a power strip cover that helps keep outlets covered and cords tucked away from children’s reach, customizable fit to ensure safety in your home’s television, computer, or kitchen appliance area, and a strip cover that’s full length and leaves no vulnerable space for your child to pull the cords or mess with the outlets.

How do I baby proof power strips with the Safety 1st Power Strip Cover?

Power strips are typically made use of in locations of your house which hold numerous electric items in one location, such as your tv or computer system location. Power strips are a typical service to the "Too lots of plugs, inadequate electrical outlets" trouble that torments most homes.

Power strips are made for use throughout your home where electrical cords bundle up together like near televisions, computers, and kitchen appliances.  The power strip covers are the best way to baby proof an area where these cords are in abundance and create a potentially dangerous situation for your child.

The issues that come from having too many cords in one place are:

1.    Your child can go into the area and play around with the open electrical cords, outlets and appliances.  This can result in electrical injuries like shocks or burns.
2.    You child can go into the area where there are a lot of electrical cords together and unplug an electrical appliance from the outlet by yanking or pulling the wire.  This can result in the same electrical injuries and can cause heavy electrical appliances to fall onto your child.

If you have this situation then the Safety 1st Power Strip Cover is the best solution for your home. The cover can simply fit over your electrical cords bundle together and hide any cords so your child can’t get into a dangerous situation.  

The product will simply adjust to the closed cords securely so there is no room for your child to grab and pull.  The outlets stay covered so your child can’t plug in or out appliances that shouldn’t be messed with, and the power strip cover can be wall mounted for use off the floor like near computers or televisions.  

The Safety 1st Power Strip Cover’s size is adjustable, wall mountable, and can be purchased in different colors and styles. Shop now at Child Safety Store!
