Childproofing against electrocution is highly recommended for homes with children aged twelve and under. Exposure to low voltage electricity found in wall outlets and electrical cords are a proven danger to children of all ages, not just toddlers.
Attention to home safety is a an important aspect of a caring and healthy family life, particularly when young children are involved. Products like the "lectralock" style plug protectors help prevent accidental electrical shocks or deaths and are easy to install.
Here at LectraLock, we pride ourselves in the craftsmanship of all our products, and these large cover outlet protectors are no different. Our outlet covers are made in the United States of a remarkably strong space age resin known as Lexan. This amazing material is both impact resistant and fire retardant, giving you peace of mind when it comes to safety and protection.
Being a new mom is such an exciting time, but it can also be scary and even overwhelming, especially when it comes to protecting your child. Between 4 and 5 million children are accidentally injured or killed each year, according to the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
It is estimated that upwards of one hundred children are electrocuted every year because wall sockets are not properly protected.
About 1000 children die each year in the US from electrical shock, but children can also sustain injuries such as burns, shortness of breath, chest pain, and injuries from being thrown from the source of the shock.
Many people have asked us about how and why we developed our patented LectraLock outlet cover. Well, like many other unique and unusual things that come to be, there is a story behind it...
While electricity is possibly the most useful invention to date, when not used properly it can be dangerous.
They are all around your babies and toddlers - in every room they enter, every wall they pass. The danger from electrical outlets may seem small -- and it is -- but only as long as your wall outlets are protected correctly. If not covered properly, electrical outlets can pose great danger to little fingers.
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that nearly 4,000 electrocution injuries are treated each year in the Emergency Rooms around the country because of contact with an electrical socket.
When it comes to protecting your children or your friend's children, there are many precautions you should take. Electrical outlets are one of the most dangerous things for children to play with. For this reason we want to do everything possible to keep children away from these safely.
