SHAME ON AMAZON, THE MANUFACTURER, THE SELLER AND POSITIVE REVIEWERS
on 26 February 2013
I am an electrician and am persuaded by the content of:
fatallyflawed.org.uk (that's: fatallyflawedDOTorgDOTuk)
And I'm far from the only electrician to think this:
But congratulations for checking the reviews so as to get as far as this type of repeated content.
The only problem is that most buyers will only get as far as to note the product's average star rating , and for this reason I'd ask you to consider adding your own review.
Here's some cut and paste food for thought.
Do not reinsert any of these unsafe covers which you may have in use.
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.
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 made to the same dimensions as required for plugs may cause permanent damage.
No socket covers which meet the correct dimensions are available!
Socket covers introduce a variety of dangers; they make sockets less safe, not more.
Credit to Amazon, however, for publishing this review. They provide lots of other good stuff. Go buy something less deadly
