Designed to stop the misuse of, or electrical accidents at the 13a socket, in the home, office, school, care home, etc, SocketPr SocketPro 13a Socket Safety Cover from Insight Security Socket Safety Cover

Designed to stop the misuse of, or electrical accidents at the 13a socket, in the home, office, school, care home, etc, SocketPro Socket Safety Covers are available for use with single or double: 13a sockets (and/or light switches). Here are a few examples of how they are currently being used; Protecting toddlers and babies with SocketPro socket safety covers: Babies and toddlers are naturally curious, and with most electrical sockets in the UK being located at low level (typically just above the skirting board), electrical sockets are an obvious and potentially dangerous attraction. Covering your electrical sockets with socket safety covers, prevents anything being poked into the socket, or the full or partial removal of the plug from the socket. This protects children against electric shocks and also ensures there’s no sudden powering off of sensitive computer equipment, etc. whilst it’s in use. Socket safety covers protecting the elderly at home: Many elderly people living alone, enjoy the benefits of an emergency assistance alarm button which they can carry with them at all times to summon help if they for instance, have a fall or need help for any reason and can’t reach the phone. There are many such systems available, however, all rely on the use of some sort of signal transmitter or phone linked autodialler system to summon help. They all require an electrical mains power supply to operate, which is normally supplied by plugging into a 13a power socket that must be left permanently switched on. Unfortunately, there have been many instances where the system has been accidentally unplugged or the power switched off at the socket, rendering the system inoperative and therefore useless. A socket safety cover protects against this and for those situations where the risk is greatest (i.e. where the protected person is suffering from dementia), a lockable version of the socket cover provides even greater protection. Protecting PCs and other sensitive equipment: Suddenly switching off the power to a PC which is in use can cause all sorts of problems for the user, from data corruption to loss of the work in progress. The socket safety cover ensures that no one (toddler or cleaner!), can accidentally unplug your computer while your working on it. Keeping the lights on: There are many valid reasons why a certain “light switch” or “power socket” should always be left switched on. Socket safety covers, which are available to fit single or double 13a sockets (or switch plates with the same overall dimensions), prevent accidental switching off! Protecting electrical sockets against splashes and food debris: Electrical sockets in food preparation areas, kitchens, laboratories, etc. are easily protected from liquid splashes or micro particles in the atmosphere (i.e. flour or dust), by fitting them with a safety cover.

Who uses Socket Safety Covers? SocketPro socket safety covers have literally hundreds of uses and are suitable for almost any type of environment, but here are a few examples of popular current applications; At Home - obviously they’re very popular in the home and an essential safety aid where there are toddlers or crawling babies around. They’re also great for protecting that socket next to the sink, against water splashes! ...and what about those sockets in your shed or garage? In the Office – from protecting the power supplies to PCs and other office equipment, to protecting the power socket next to the electric kettle, socket safety covers are a great low cost safety aid and convenience. In the laboratory – prevent the accidental switching off of the power to that current experiment! In the factory or workshop – protecting against dirt and liquid splashes! In the School – replacing broken or damaged electrical sockets is expensive, which is why many schools now use socket safety covers to simply protect their sockets against damage caused by knocks or heavy handed use. ...click here for details of more safety products available from Insight Security This message was added on Tuesday 24th August 2010
