This products works exactly as expected. There is one potential problem. before you buy, make sure you unscrew your existing plate and measure the length of the screw. It should be at least 9/16", or else when you put on this plate the screw won't reach the threading. I found that some screws in my house were long enough and some too short, so I had to go to the hardware store and buy a set of extra screws to use these. Otherwise, the product is great.

This product is a must-have if you need to baby-proof a house. Much more convenient than the simple plastic plugs you can stick in outlets. You can plug and unplug as needed without needing a screwdriver to remove stuck plugs. The spring loaded mechanism is pretty tight making it very hard for an inventive and strong toddler to slide the cover aside. Even if the toddler is capable of that, it would not leave a free hand to actually stick anything in at the same time. With the cover on it is impossible to stick anything in.

To install, just replace the face plate of the outlets with these. They cover the original outlets, so no rewiring is needed. Screws are supplied in case the original screws are too short to accommodate the slightly thicker plates.

There are some flimsy competitive products out there. So I made sure to get sturdy ones. These are pretty sturdy, allowing you to screw them on real tight without cracking or even bending them.

I decided to try these out since the positive reviews out-weighed the negative and I really need an outlet in each room where I don't have to deal with the plastic plugs for things like the vacuum and iron. I faced several issues and will be returning these.
1) The width and height are smaller than the standard outlet cover. While they covered the hole in the wall, they did not cover marks from the prior cover and missing paint so the wall around each outlet cover I replaced would require touch up. I took a chance since other reviewers had already mentioned this and unfortunately I had the same issue.
2) they didn't lay flat against the wall so they could be twisted left and right and it looked bad. while little fingers couldn't get into the space between the plate and the wall, little hands could try to shove stuff down there. Or if they did twist the cover they could turn it enough to create an opening.
3) when trying out a few plugs in the outlet when I'd remove the plug the cover didn't always slide back into place leaving the plug holes exposed. I tried 5 times and 2x the cover didn't fully retract.

Love this product - good price, easy to install, and works well. I've only had one intermittent problem with the product, which I describe in the update at the end of this review.

This product was easy to install and came with the hardware needed to do so - namely, a longer center screw. Two nice touches: 1) the screw head is painted white so that it blends in with the cover, and 2) the cover comes with a thermal gasket to insulate the wall opening around the socket and hopefully save you energy/money. (Note: if you buy the bulk pack of these, you only get 5 thermal gaskets for the 25 covers. But if you buy the single outlet cover, which is what this review covers, every cover comes with a thermal gasket.) All you need to install your outlet covers is a flat-head screwdriver. One reviewer mentioned having to go to the hardware store to get a longer center screw. Not sure if Mommys Helper has started including a longer screw in response to customer complaints, if this reviewer just didn't notice the included screw, or he got a defective cover. In any case, all of mine came with the necessary hardware.

The product also seems sturdy and to work very well. When the center screw is tightened, it fits firmly against the wall, just like the original outlet cover. The sliding covers snap back very smoothly and quickly when you unplug something. My baby hasn't yet shown an interest in electric outlets, but as well as these covers seem to be designed, I don't see how he'd be able to get to the socket with these covers installed. (I'll update this review as he gets older if he figures out how to circumvent the sliding covers, but I'd be surprised if he did.

Easy to install and covers the outlet entirely. Other safety faceplates I tried never covered the outlet completely and my son could stick a straightened paper clip through. Not this one! They are very easy to use for an adult as well. :)

I wanted to love these outlet covers, so much so that I optimistically bought 20 of them, but I'm seriously disappointed with them. They are easy to install and look good, but because they have the sliding panel that moves in front of the outlet, it adds enough additional material that standard plugs can't reach all the way into the outlet. The plugs reach in partially, but the plastic slide pressuring against them causes them to pop right back out.

Here is my comparison of the Mommys Helper Safe Plate Electrical Outlet Cover to Safety 1st Swivel Outlet Cover. We have two of each and all have been installed for between 2 weeks and 2 months.

For Mommys Helper Safe Plate:
Pros:
Doesn't feel flimsy
Easy to plug in/ unplug items
Easy to install
Looks nice
Included screws fit and match the color of the outlet plate

Cons:
Slightly more expensive than Safety 1st Swivel Outlet cover
Only replaces single screw outlet covers
Might be slightly easier for toddlers to figure out than swivel covers
I've never heard of Mommys Helper before
