Device Ensures Optimal Outlet Safety for Children - Designed by InventHelp Client (IPL-123)

Share Article

One of America's largest invention submission companies, InventHelp is working to submit the Childproof Safety Outlet to companies for their review.

"I saw a case on a judge TV show that involved a child getting injured due to pulling off a plastic outlet guard with a knife and sticking the knife into the outlet," said an inventor from Mount Desert, Maine. "There was no legal recourse for the plaintiff because the plastic guards were an adequate defense, so I started to think of better ways to prevent shocking and electrocution accidents involving children and poorly protected outlets."

To meet this need, he created CHILDPROOF SAFETY OUTLET, a device that provides a child-proof electrical outlet in order to eliminate the possibility of a child contacting an outlet directly. It serves as a more reliable alternative to conventional plastic outlet guards in the interest of avoiding shocks and electrocution. Ergonomic and easy to use, the device is suitable for households, preschools, schools, day-care centers, summer camps, YMCAs, doctors’ and dentists’ offices, libraries, etc.

The original design was submitted to the National Sale office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
