When baby becomes active, one of the most useful items in your home, electrical outlets, can also become the most dangerous. Those little slits on the wall are fascinating for young children and often appear directly in their crawling sight line. Outlet covers are a must in any home with small children. These plastic devices are shaped in a couple of different ways and are designed to cover the electrical openings that draw your child's natural curiosity. The most common and inexpensive style looks like a plug with a flat cover. The plug covers will insert directly into your outlet like a plug. They are easy to use, but have the disadvantage of having to be removed before each use, and can easily get lost. Total outlet covers are another choice, which will provide a more permanent protective plan. Many are made as a replacement outlet cover. The safety device simply slides over the open outlet when it is not in use. Some of those that cover the entire outlet are actually designed as boxes to keep your plugged-in items from getting pulled out too easily. These styles are very convenient and effective, but a little more difficult to install.
