They come packaged in a two-pack, and are a nice, smooth white. The opening can be on the left or the right, so I positioned the opening away from my son's crib. It's been almost a month, and he still hasn't discovered the opening.
Installation was a breeze. I removed the screws from the switch cover, placed the guard over, and the screws fit perfectly, securing the guard over the original cover. All I needed was a flat-head screwdriver.
Edit: My son eventually figured this out. But it bought us some time! And I have since used these to "discourage" myself and my husband from flicking off a light in the garage that actually controls the outside lights, not the garage lights. It worked! We both left it alone and used the correct switch :) but, if necessary, it's open on the other end so i could easily flick the switch if I needed to.
Note: There are less expensive ways to protect a wall switch (for example, get pipe straps for less than a buck apiece at local hardware store, DIY big-box store, home improvement center, etc.) and bend it to fit (so the holes line up with the switch-plate mounting-screw holes). Not as "neat" or "finished" looking, but does the job; on the other hand, if appearance matters, these Westek switch guards are a good way to go.
1) I have a ceiling fan/light kit that uses a remote control. So the wall switch needs to stay "on" for the remote to function to control the ceiling fan and lights. Put this plastic thing over the switch and you're good to go.
2) outdoor light/motion detector flood light. If you switch it off, the motion detector wont work, so a good way of keeping that light operating the way its supposed it.
3) also good if you have special lighting in your cabinets or accent lighting you dont want to be turned on except on rare occasion. My kids flip every switch on and those accent light bulbs burn out quick and are expensive. This limits how frequently they are put on.
Look, they're not really an eye sore but it does stand out as a cover to a switch. I dont mind it, it saves my guests from going nuts on how to turn on and off the ceiling fan, and keeps our house safe at night by keeping that flood light on. It takes 2 seconds to install... remove two screws, place on top, put screws back in.
