Hi Nick try the word "NO" it is 99p cheaper and saves the hurt when you are visiting others!

Also, its a small known fact, that socket covers are more likely to increase accidents rather than prevent them. The sockets in our country already have built in safety features, an unused socket already has internal shutters down over the two live bits, they oionly open when something is inserted into the top hole.

Therefore, children will see you place these covers over your sockets, then they will remove them... potentially put them in upside down, leaving them with the two live holes uncovered and unprotected.

I was sceptical of this, but checked it out, and now have binned all my socket covers.

Would this depend on how old the sockets were?

Thats an incredible price -- my son is now ten and I remember spending a fortune on this stuff when he was a baby/toddler

Heat added!

My son used to be petrified of balloons when he was at the crawling age. We taped a balloon to the video and also to the bottom of the stairs and honestly he NEVER went near lol. Saved us a lot of money on a stair gate at the bottom of the stairs!:-D

I *think* its a law... but the internal safety shutters are very visible... if you were to insert a plug upside down.. so that only the top pin were inserted, you would be able to see whether the internal shutters were there or not... there is a website, [url]www.fatallyflawed.org.uk[/url] (I shall double check that address) that explains it in better detail.

(Am i allowed to post web addresses? I shall remove if not.)

All UK 13 amp sockets have internal shutters, unless they have been removed(no good reason for anyone doing this) or are faulty. As mentioned previously, they are clearly visible. I dislike seeing socket 'safety plugs' as if children get past the built in safety then I'd be very surprised. There are many easier ways for a child to be electrocuted than them exploring a socket. As you may have guessed, I have never used them at home for my now 4yo girl.
As mentioned in previous post, please take a moment to check http://www.fatallyflawed.org.uk as it is a very informative website for those assuming more is better.

Not if you get the special ones that they can't get a grip on, that you can only remove using another cover.

The site linked shows various ways children can bypass the 'safety' aspect of covers. But aside from that, why use them when they are useless? Sockets are already protected.

Still a good deal, regardless of the useful information provided here. For example, the cupboard latches themselves are £3.91p in Tesco for 12, which means just for these alone, you are saving money, not to mention the other items.
