Fatally Flawed Socket Covers Should NOT be Used

Socket Covers should NOT be inserted into sockets – they are dangerous!

  • British 13 Amp sockets have built in automatic shutters to protect against children poking things in them. First introduced 65 years ago, they are considered the safest in the world and do not require external covers.
  • No responsible national body recommends using socket covers.  That includes the UK Government, RoSPA, Ofsted, Child Accident Prevention Trust and Electrical Safety Council.
  • Sockets are made to accept plugs which meet very exact requirements.  Anything which is not a standard plug MUST be made to the same dimensions as required for plugs. No socket covers which meet those dimensions are available!
  • Socket covers introduce a variety of dangers; they make sockets less safe, not more.
