Review and Giveaway: Safety Caps CLOSED

We all safety proof our houses as best as we can when we have children. I know it took me weeks to figure out how to open my cabinets after my first son was born. But, what would you do if you found out that what you were doing to protect you little ones could actually do you harm?

Well, this is what happened to the founder of Safety Caps. His daughter choked on an outlet plug cover. Yes, it is probably the ones you have all over your house. I had them in all my electrical outlets, and didn't even realize that they were a hazard.

The old outlet covers are small enough that they can be swallowed. So over at Safety Caps, they have been redesigned to a larger size and they have air holes based on the US pacifier regulations.

This picture shows the Safety Cap on top with the old cover on the bottom. Not only are the Safety Caps safer, but they blend better with the electrical outlet.

Need to make your home a safer place? Safety Caps has offered to give one lucky reader a 24 pack of caps, but if you order before this giveaway is over, you will recieve 96 free!!
