Product Description

Curious children are always tempted by electrical plugs, outlets and switches. Power strips are now a common sight in many homes, controlling and protecting computers, answering machines, kitchen appliances and power tools. Our Power Strip Safety Cover protects both the children and the equipment from the dangers of curious little hands. Standard single row power strips can be easily inserted into the Safety Cover. After plugging the appliances into the outlets, the cover securely snaps shut with four latches making it difficult for small children to open. For the power strip user, there is a separate latchable door for convenient access to the on/off switch. The interior of the Safety Cover is spacious enough to accommodate many types of plugs including most transformers and heavy duty three prong plugs as well as standard two prong plugs.

I bought this white cover (model 40896, UPC 3676840896, code on label X0000DM4BB) and Safety 1st Power Strip Cover to compare the two. Unlike that item, this cover is not expandable. Its dimensions are fixed at 14" length, 2-3/4" wide, and 3-1/4" high (except for the 4" at the power strip cord end which is only 1-3/4" high). The slot where the cords for the equipment come out is 1/2" wide and 7-5/8" long. When closed, the hole for the power strip cord is 1-1/8" by 1-1/2". There are no holes for wall mounting, but four outlet covers, two plastic cable ties, and ten cord identifier stickers are provided.

To open the 4" cover at the power strip cord end, you pull up on a single tab; this seems rather easy for a child to disengage, which means that he/she might have access to the outlet nearest the power strip cord end. To open the main cover, you pry open three tabs, then open the unit like a clamshell.

The plastic is softer but probably more resistant to breakage compared with the Safety 1st model. I like the fact that you can simply open the 4" cover to flick the power strip switch on and off. It is narrower and shorter than the Safety 1st model by about 3/4" in either direction, which may prevent using wider strips or transformers more than about 1-1/2" high with it.

Buy this from Amazon.com! (BTW, about the Amazon photo, the interior is actually white, I don't know what produced that egg-yolk-yellow color inside.)

I have several different types of power strips in my house, and this thing is too small for all except one of them. I bought two of these and I cannot use the second one now, and I don't know what to do about the 3 power strips in my house that will not fit. Also, you cannot have anything with a large plug, or it won't shut (for example, my iPhone plug won't fit). I wish it was just a little bit larger. It is hard to open, but I guess that's good. The picture with the product open is deceptive, there is no way a big AC converter plug would fit inside this thing.

We use it all over our house. It actually makes our cords look very neat. But before you buy it, please beware of the dimensions of the product (see in product descriptions). It fits all our single-row surge protectors, and even a double-row extention cord with timer. it fits most of our plugs with transformer, EXCEPT some of the bigger ones. Unfortunately, the transformers for our router and DSL modem are too big to fit in, so we still have to find another solution for those...

For a piece of plastic, it does a good job. It is hard to open (that's the point) but the power on and off switch is easily accesible, which seems a good safety precaution. It comes with three little outlet covers, and a couple of useful plastic ties for the cords. the only problem i have with it so far, is the surge protector i am using is too small, and the first plug is exposed in the on/off switch compartment that is easy to open. it is still better than nothing, but like with all kids safety products, parents are never replaced.

Great babyproofing idea -- my 16 month old has not been able to open this cover. Additionally, I think it actually looks better (cleaner) now that the cover is on the power strip.

This is a very useless item. It doesn't protect children from sticking their fingers inside the cover. This is easily done even by myself through the top where the cords are supposed to come out. A child can easily unplug anything inside the cover and get their fingers inside, which completely defeats it's purpose.

This is challenging to get open and closed for the adult in the equation. There are a series of little pegs that must fit into little holes to get it to latch. But they are quite challenging to get to line up correctly and heaven forbid you need to get it back open. Now you would think that that's the point of the power strip cover, right? Except the hole that allows the cords to come out the top is so wide that my 9 month old just sticks his hand right inside and can put a finger in the socket. It does come w a couple outlet plugs for the extra slots in your power strip, I was just hoping this would work a wee bit better. If all you really need is to prevent your child from unplugging things from your power strip, than this will work for you.

Side clip loose and unsafe. As soon as I got it out of the box my 19 months old was able to open the side "security" clip and flip the cover open.Buy Safety 1st power strip cover instead. Much better quality.
