Safety Caps review and giveaway

A couple of months ago now a friend of mine gave me a gift, the gift contained
a few things, but one of the most important were the Safety Caps that were
included. They were the most important, because one of my biggest concerns
over my children is making sure they are growing up in a safe environment.
Now, I have a 4 year old and an 8 month old and I think any of us with

children know how important it is to baby proof your home. Immediately upon receiving and opening my Safety Caps I started covering outlets. I've since thrown away any of my old ones, because I am so thoroughly impressed with these. I even recently purchased additional Safety Caps for my sister in-law and another friend of mine.
Since I was so impressed, I decided to look up the website behind the Safety Caps and I discovered an amazing story! George, father and the man behind safety caps, saved his daughters life. She nearly suffocated on a standard size outlet cover and that is when George started researching, and designed a safe product. They are all made in the U.S.A. Please visit the Safety Caps website for the entire story.
Not only do I have safe outlet covers now, but they are clear and not aesthetically hard on the eyes. Another thing I love about them is when I do need an outlet and need to remove the Safety Cap, it is easy enough for me, but not my children.

I then contacted George to tell him how much I appreciated his product and he generously offered to give one of you a chance to win a set of 24 SafetyCaps! Thank you George!
For your chance to win a set of 24 SafetyCaps,
please visit the SafetyCaps website and tell me something you did not know either about Safety Caps or standard outlet covers. Come back here and leave your answer in the comments.

I've never heard of these! I never knew/realized that the standard covers, a BABY-PROOFING PRODUCT, would be a choking hazard....scary!

Gena said...

I NEVER knew about these until recently and never would have thought they were any better than standard ones! I also didn't know that a very common safety product is a choking hazard! Who would have thought to check that!

Gena said...

I have your button!

Haasiegirl said...

its a great idea!! How scary to choke on a plug. Kids can get their fingers behind anything.

I didn't know a kid could choke on a cover...this bad mommy has left her kiddos play with them.

The Petersons said...

I never thought about the regular covers as being a choking hazard. Figures!

AJ @ A Little Bit Nutty said...

I had no idea until recently that normal plug covers were choking hazards. How scary!

Momstart said...

I like the ones we have they are outlets that slide over, very difficult for the kids to figure out, but the outlets are still usable. Man, I never thought about the other kind being a hazard, but I always spot a small toy the same size

Trish said...

I like how they are made in the US using non-toxic plastic!

Staci said...

I learned that other outlet covers fail both the US Pacifier Anti-Choking Regulations and Small Part Test Cylinder. But SafetyCaps pass both.

Staci said...

I follow you too, thanks!

Amanda said...

I had no idea even hospitals were pulling the other caps from their safety products.

Miranda said...

I think it's great he designed a product that is safe for our children. I also think it is awesome that these are made right here in the USA!

Kimberly said...

I never realized that the normal old ones were a choking hazard, but I can see that now.

There are two holes in the cap so that if it get's lodged in a child's throat, air can pass through

That regular plugs only measure 1 3/8 inches across. Safety caps measure 2 1/4 inches across.
