Mothercare Socket Covers
Advantages: easy to use, fit in well, safe product
Disadvantages: bit fiddly to remove in a hurry with long nails
Having a child means safety around the home is very important as we have had some accidents in the past and I am always conscious of ensuring she is ok at home in the future. Mothercare is a brilliant local shop for me to pick up childcare products and so years ago when my daughter was at the crawling stage, we picked up some of these socket covers and they have been brilliant ever since!
The socket covers are made of simple white plastic, and with slots which fit into a UK three pin sockets. This is to protect little ones from sticking their curious fingers in the sockets and getting into mischief! As the socket covers are white they blend in effectively and although they look a bit garish they do not stand out to make the decor of a room look hideous.
The sockets covers are really light and whilst they looked a bit flimsy, they are actually really durable as we have had them over 2 years now and they have lasted and only one has actually snapped when I accidentally stood on it in a pair of heels...oops!
They fit in a socket with ease, but do require some good grip at clawing them out which is a bit of a pain if I have a set of acrylic nails on. I guess this is a good thing as it means that as yet my child is not capable to take them out herself which is an excellent prevention method - the purpose I bought it, but when I am in a hurry to remove the socket cover it does annoy me a wee bit!
A pack of 12 socket covers only costs £6.99 which for us is a reasonable price to pay for peace of mind. They are a good buy and are really easy to plug in yourself around the home so no major DIY is needed. Overall they are good value, and have served us well so I would definitely recommend them!
Summary: good safety item for those with little ones if you ask me :)
