“No shocks to the system.”

published 31/12/2010

Piece of mind.

A slight pain having to take them out.

Is my daughter hallucinating? Can she see sweets in the electrical sockets in our house and must get them out by any means? No amount of saying 'no, dangerous' or baby signing works. So we have had to buy socket covers. My daughters safety is obviously my priority but I did wonder whether I was...

Not for me

None

Risk of death, waste of money, pointless.

For many years the manufacturers of these socket covers have been scaring gullible parents and even professional carers into buying what is basically a worthless and even potentially dangerous product. You see them in church halls, play groups, homes, anywhere that children might be and people...

Hard to get out.

One of my children is at that age where he is exploring everything and, as I'm sure you can imagine, this means doing everything he is told not to do. Its like he seeks out danger just to regularly give me a heart attack and then, once I've recovered, to move on to the next thing.....and so it...

“Put a socket cover in it”

published 13/09/2012

Essential for safety in the home

Can be hard to remove

As with most things I did a fair amount of research when I started baby-proofing our house. As always I decided to err on the side of caution so I picked up a set of these Mothercare socket covers for £3.99 for a pack of 12, to cover up all the unused sockets in our house, and I soon found there...

“Mothercare socket covers”

Keeps sockets safe

Do we really need them??!!

Once your little baby starts to become mobile thats really where the fun starts and the house becomes an amazing playground of adventure that they love exploring. The trouble for us is that there's lots of things around the house that need modifying if I want to let my little boy loose. Its quite...

easy to use, fit in well, safe product

bit fiddly to remove in a hurry with long nails

Having a child means safety around the home is very important as we have had some accidents in the past and I am always conscious of ensuring she is ok at home in the future. Mothercare is a brilliant local shop for me to pick up childcare products and so years ago when my daughter was at the...

Cheap and easy to fit

None

Baby proofing the house is an essential thing to do once they start to crawl and walk about and the natural inquisitiveness of a baby could also put them at risk. You get 12 socket covers in a pack and they cost £6.99 so they are nice and affordable. They are white in colour so they match the...

Baby & child safety should always be the main priority in any household and this is no exception in my sister's house with 4 children under the age of 14. 12 white socket covers are available from Mothercare for £4.99 and these are available online or in store. The covers are just white plastic...
