Follow up on electric safety
Thursday, October 11, 2007
I actually came up with another extremely low cost solution if you, like we, have way too many outlets in your house, outlets that you don't use. Instead of buying the expensive baby proof outlet covers you can just buy at Lowes or Home Depot the plain blank wallplates. These go for about $0.50-$0.75 a piece and completely cover up your electrical plug (replacing the current wallplate of course). And naturally you won't be able to use the plug anymore that is without replacing the blank wallplate back to the original, but if you have outlets that, as I say, you just never use it's certainly an easy and cheap solution to be completely safe.

Of course you'll want to hang on to the original plug wallplates to switch them back once the little one has outgrown the safety concern of sticking their finger in the plug.

    Great idea. I was over at a friend's house last night - they recently adopted twin 3-year-olds. It was funny because they already figured how how to remove the safety latches on the cabinets! Smart kiddos!
