Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Does it prevent the baby from pulling the cord out or just covers the outlet?
Answer: This will cover the outlet, as well as shorten the cord. This will not completely cover the cord though, so there is a chance that the baby can still access some cord to pull.
How do you mount this? Is it screwed to the wall or does it stick like a sticker?
Answer: You need to remove the standard outlet plate and replace it with the outlet cover.
Will this work with a thick cord like a power strip?
Answer: Yes this will work with a thick cord but it would work best with one that is flush against the outlet. If the plug sticks out too far it is tough to bend the cable back and get the cover on.
Could this fit over an appliance outlet?
Answer: Whether the Outlet Cover with Cord Shortener will fit over your appliance outlet will depend on the outlet size. The Outlet Cover will fit standard outlet plates that are approximately 3.5" wide and 5.25" high. The cover has a depth allowance of 2.75".
Will this cover the standard window ac unit plug?
Answer: Whether this will cover the AC unit plug will depend on the size of the plug. The dimensions for this cover are 3 x 3.6 x 6.5 inches. The cover has a depth allowance of 2.75".
Will it work outdoors?
Answer: The Safety 1st Outlet Cover with Cord Shortener will fit standard size outlets. It is NOT weather proof and would not prevent an outlet from getting wet.
