I ordered these outlet covers after my 17-month-old son unplugged my laptop, the cordless phone base, his baby monitor, the wipes warmer, the lamps, my alarm clock, the DVD player, the Tivo, and the Bose sound dock about 12,448 times. A person can only say "NO" so many times in a day, before he shuts off his hearing & defiantly does what he wants anyway. Kinda like his father. Oh, the joys of parenting.

Anyway, these covers work great. They're a cinch to install, even for a tool-challenged person such as myself. And there's no way he can pry the covers off. *I* sometimes have a hard time simultaneously pushing both buttons and pulling the removable piece off.

I think it's been mentioned previously, but they won't work with the decora-style rectangle outlets. Mine are the old style, with a single screw in the middle of the two plugs, and they fit perfectly. Just be aware that the picture shows them as being white; but the ones I received are actually more of a sand color. It didn't bother me at all; but if you're fussy about your light switch plates matching your outlet covers, these may drive you crazy.

I was pleasantly entertained by many of the reviews on this product and was looking forward to the arrival of this "Safety1st Outlet cover." However, when I tried it out, I was disappointed and wished I knew what I was getting before I ordered it. Now that I have read more reviews, many of my concerns have been mentioned by others:
1. The maximum cord size is AWG 16/2. That's typical insulated lampcord [as pictured on the box]. You won't be able to use a standard grounded cord with 3 wires. That rules out your MacBook, your flatscreen TV, any self-respecting wire connected to a 3-pronged plug.
2. It's complicated. I'm no slouch, but winding the cord and tucking it under the tab and holding it in place while snapping the outer cover over the whole mess of spaghetti is like trying to wind a pocketwatch from the inside out.
3. It's not reasonable for a frequently used device [laptop]. Winding your cord through tight turns is bad enough once, but the wear and tear on a cord to repeatedly route it under the tabs on the base plate is unsafe.
4. It has a deterrent value of ONE SECOND. If you route a AWG 16/2 cord as directed and close the cover over the baseplate and then apply a 10lb mass to the cord [away from the wall], the base plate bends and the cover pops off, exposing the partially removed plug.
That takes about one second. I'm quick... but not THAT quick.

There is an accurate disclaimer on the box that reads: "CAUTION: This product is only a deterrent. It is not a substitute for proper adult supervision. Discontinue use when your child becomes old enough to defeat it."

Does your toddler weigh ten pounds or more? Can s/he pull on a cord? If so, s/he will be able to defeat it.
You may hear a faint 'click' when the cover pops off.

I agree with the other reviewer that these are a great idea. Unfortunately, almost every outlet in our house has the Leviton-brand square cutouts. These aren't usable with those style (like this Do it Best Grounding Decora Outlet ) recepticles.

I used this product to cover the plug for my daughter's monitor. Since installing (easy to do) she actually has not gone near any outlets. The only down side is that the cover only allows one small brick plug rather than being able to utilize both outlets.

When I bought this I did so expecting it to work with the standard outlets my house, unfortunately they were not compatible. The first picture attached is the type of outlets in my house, the second is the type of outlets this item works with. This cover has the crossbar with screw hole. Fortunately, I was able to cut the cover (with a Dremel tool) and drill two new holes to make it comparable. After modification, I really like functionality of this cover.

I bought one of these to try because my 8 month old decided that since all of the cords were tied down, he would go for outlet instead. The concept is great and it is super easy to install but the gap intended for the cords is WAY too small for anything other than a lamp or other small electronic cord. I needed this to cover an outlet that has a surge protector plugged in for the TV and the cord is too thick to put the cover on. I used wire cutters to cut away a piece of plastic that is meant to wrap cords around and it made just enough room to fit the larger cord through. The final result looks fine, you can't see the part that I cut and if it works as it should I may buy more and alter them as well unless I can find a product that will work better for what I need. It would be nice if the item description noted that it is not meant for use with large cords though. Also, as a few other people noted, if you pull on the cords coming out of it hard enough the cover will pop off. Stapling the cords to the wall took care of that pretty easily.

***Update***
I recently purchased Safety 1st Adapter and Plug Cover and found that it works much better for thick cords. It doesn't have a "cord shortener" but I do not need that (and found it quite useless anyway). It also seems more secure, as the cover slides over the part connected to wall rather than pushing onto it like this one does. Costs a little bit more but definitely worth it. I will be buying more to replace the other covers I bought.
