handyman plug coversHere is a simple handyman project that protects the little ones in your house. You must baby-proof your electrical outlets. It just seems that kids that are intrigued by outlets. Maybe it is because they are at the perfect height for a toddler that is crawling. Or maybe it is because toddlers have a never-ending curiosity. Whatever the reason, kids love seeing just how far they can go before they get caught. So preventing kids from sticking something into an electrical outlet is very important.

Fortunately, it is also very easy. Yes, you can buy the latest, greatest gadget to stop something from entering the outlet. They make special covers that you have to twist to be able to use the outlet. There are all kinds of things coming out that do this. But it seems if I have to stand on my head to operate a shock prevention device, I’m likely not going to use the outlet. So I go with simple.

I prefer the basic plastic plugs that you just push into each outlet. They are basic, they are cheap, and they are fast. You can buy them in the color of your outlet which may make junior not as interested in them. It seems that when you change the outlet, kids get curious about it and want to spend time figuring it out. Not so with plastic plugs. They are cheap, easy, and fast.
