..::Product Review::.. COVERPLUG Paintable Outlet Cover

My Review of the COVERPLUG Paintable Outlet Cover

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"The COVERPLUG™ is a durable, molded, and paintable plastic panel that plugs right into an electrical socket to cover the entire outlet. This innovative outlet cover is held securely in place by posts on the back that align with the ground openings and require no tools for installation or removal. They are made in the USA and use a specially designed plastic that is easily paintable to match your wall color. The COVERPLUG™ is an excellent child proofing product."


I was sent (2) outlet covers from COVERPLUG to review.  

The price for this pack is $8.50, and it ships free with Amazon Prime.

Packaging & Presentation of the COVERPLUG Paintable Outlet Cover

I am pleased to say that this twin-pack of outlet covers arrived in pretty good condition.  There were no dents nor defects of in the actual product, but one edge side of the box was a little crinkled from shipment.  The box is a light gray, with black and yellow accents.  The box is 5.25" x 5.0" x 1.25" at its widest points.

The front of the box labels the product and brand.  It provides a little visual diagram of what the product does.

The back of the box has a few directions and features of the COVERPLUG.  It also has a testimonial, and lists their website.  There is no information on the sides of the box (besides a UPC).  The COVERPLUG is made in the USA.

The box actually opens on the side, and when you peek in, the outlet covers are nested in each other.

The front side of the outlet covers are smooth, and appear to be an almost off-white, but not super off-white.  These measure approximately 5.0" x 3.25" (the typical measurement of a standard outlet).

On the back side, you will find (2) prongs, and these are what keeps the COVERPLUG in place.

Each outlet cover has COVERPLUG's website, patent number, and a 'Made in the USA' stamp engraved into it.

My Personal Experience with the COVERPLUG Paintable Outlet Cover

I think by now you guys know that I have two kids.  One is 6, almost 7.  The other is 10 months.  It's really crazy to see how their personalities differ at such a young age.  My son is very precise.  He likes things to be in order, and he is very cautious.  My daughter, on the other hand, is pretty reckless.  She puts every little piece of dirt into her mouth, tries to stick her fingers in every outlet, crawls around anywhere, etc.  My son never did that when he was her age.  Therefore, I've never had to use outlet covers before.  But now I do.  That's why I'm so, so, so happy that I was selected to review the COVERPLUG.

I chose an outlet that was easy to photograph, but this is not the one that I'm using the COVERPLUG with.  But it doesn't matter, because COVERPLUG works in any outlet.

Wanna see how easy this is?  Place the two prongs into the outlet's grounds... and push!

The final product looks like this:

Pros of the COVERPLUG Paintable Outlet Cover
  • Completely covers the entire outlet-- my daughter doesn't even get tempted!
  • You can paint this to match any decor.
  • Not only for kid-safety.  You can use this to cover up ugly outlets.
  • Easy, easy, easy to install, and only takes seconds!
Cons of the COVERPLUG Paintable Outlet Cover
  • I have not found any cons of the COVERPLUG.

          This is a genuine lifesaver.  These are so nice, and so simple.  They are not bulky, and you can customize them to match any paint job that you have.  I think the price is extremely reasonable for what this product offers.  I'm definitely getting a few more for around my house!

          I love that it covers up the entire outlet instead of just half of it. I really need these for when my young nephews come over.
