How Do I Baby Proof My Home With The Kidco Electrical Outlet Caps?

The Kidco Electrical Outlet Caps can help baby proof your electrical outlets. They help deter any children (and pets!) from opening and messing with the outlet cover, preventing access to dangerous situations like electricity burns or shocks. These types of covers fit right over the outlet and have an opening door that easily locks to guarantee a child cannot open or close.

Outlet plugs like our KidCo Electrical Outlet Cap are a simple and cheap solution for parents looking to baby proof their outlets without using a clunky cover case. These are simply made of plastic and plug right into the empty outlet just like a normal plug. The front of the cap is made with non-grippy plastic so a child can’t remove the cap once inserted into the outlet.  It also prevents them from removing the cap from the outlet.

The only negative to these types of caps is that you will need to remove them every time you use the outlet. This becomes a hassle when vacuuming or plugging in/out of outlets for different appliances.  In some cases where parents forget about plugging their outlet cap back into the outlet, they are leaving their child vulnerable to potential electrical injuries like shocks or burns. That is why we highly recommend using the KidCo Electrical Outlet Cap.
