Dual Guard Socket Covers

If you’re worried that your wily toddler will be able to work out how to remove a regular plastic cover, or you have older children, these socket covers provide a double layer of safety. As well as covering the socket opening, there’s an ‘anti grip’ design to make it difficult to remove it without the use of a tool (£3.50, munchkin.com).
