QUESTIONS

What are child proof outlets?

Child-proof electrical outlets resemble standard wall outlets, but they are different in a number of ways. These specialised outlets feature electrical sockets that are spring-loaded and whose cover plates protect the electrical contact points. In this way, these outlets prevent children from inserting foreign objects, when unequal pressure is applied to the socket points.

How to operate a childproof outlet?

Childproof outlets are simple, yet effective, and do not require strength or special knowledge to operate. To insert a plug into the socket, simply apply equal amounts of pressure to both sides of the plug simultaneously. This equal pressure allows the cover plates protecting the contact points to slide open.

What do children put in electrical outlets?

Even the most mundane household items present threats when inserted into electrical outlets. These items include the following:
⦁ Keys
⦁ Cutlery
⦁ Tools
⦁ Toys
⦁ Jewellery
⦁ Staples, paper clips and hairpins
⦁ Knives, etc

Why should you update your home to childproof outlets?

Inexpensive childproof outlets transform your entire home into a safer environment for children, giving you peace of mind. Failure to childproof electrical outlets places children in your home at risk of serious electrical burns, injury and even death.

What to avoid when shopping for child proof outlets:

When shopping for child-proof outlets to install in your home or business, avoid those that require being screwed into place. These small, inconvenient metal screws represent a fire hazard. Once installed, avoid using childproof outlets that have plastic plugs since these are a choking hazard for small children.
