Safe Beginnings: Sliding Safety Outlet Covers Review & Giveaway


As a mother of 2 young boys I am constantly on the lookout for products that will help child proof my home.  We invested in the standard plastic outlet covers that you plug into the outlet but of course as the boys got older they learned how to pull those out of the outlets.  I was recently introduced to a great company called Safe Beginnings who offer great solutions to keeping your house safe for your children:

In 1988, the founders of Safe Beginnings, Inc., Susan and Jeff Baril, became parents for the first time. Although they were aware of the need to childproof, they were still caught off-guard when their baby began to crawl.  In quick response, they set out to find childproofing products to make their home safe for their new baby. After numerous shopping trips they returned either empty handed or dissatisfied with their purchases. Realizing they were not alone, the seeds were planted for the start of their business, Safe Beginnings, which was established in 1991.

From offering a chilproofing service, to a mail order catalog, to a wholesale division, to the internet, Safe Beginnings has always been concerned with providing the best in quality and service.  The company is committeed to keeping families safet and making parenting more convient and enjoyable with the largest selection of well-designed, durable childproofing products, popular baby care accessories and home safety items.

Safe Beginnings is the manufacturers of Safety Innovations brand products:

Safety Innovations is a division of Safe Beginnings, Inc. At Safety Innovations, we designs our products for use by safety professionals. This means that they are designed with high quality and the utmost attention to minor details in order to obtain positive results. We are concerned with safety, solutions, quality and results before we even start talking about cost. Most manufacturers set a price point before they even know what has to be done in order to prevent future accident and injury, this is not the way we work.

Sliding Safety Plate:

Our Sliding Safety Plate helps prevent access to outlets. Just insert a plug and slide to the right. As soon as you remove the plug, the special cover snaps shut to protect little fingers from the outlet. For Decora outlets (two screws, one top/one bottom). Select White, Ivory or Brown.

Why is Safety Innovations Sliding Plate superior than the rest?

There are two main methods we use to design products. One is to redesign old products that are no longer on the market and the other is to create a completely unique product. Many of the products we manufacture, were once made by someone else and have since disappeared from the market because they were not profitable enough for mass retailers to sell. Safety Innovations resurrected some of these quality products and brought them up to date. In the case of the sliding outlet cover, twenty years ago a man in South Dakota invented a similar plate to keep the drafts out of his house. This plate soon became one of the best selling safety products on the market. When the patent was up, we made a “wish list” of changes we wanted to see made to the cover, which included color options, larger plate size, and more spring pressure to improve the automatic closing of the outlet cover doors. We figured out how we could do all of these things and made it happen in order to provide our customers with a superior product. Other products such as the gate mount kits, we design from scratch. With these products, once we see a need, we design a solution then figure out how it is going to cost to manufacture the product. At Safety Innovations, we are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality, most effective safety products in the market to date.

My take:  Call me an idiot but I had no idea the sliding safety outlet covers were also used to keep drafts out of the house…I just thought they were a great way to keep little fingers from harm’s way.  When I installed the outlet cover on a cold windy day I found out just how much draft goes through!  Installation was easy and the best part…no fingers trying to “help” Mommy plug in her computer anymore!  A big thumbs up!
