Children cannot poke things into British sockets – they have built in automatic shutters for protection.
The British 13 Amp plug and socket is considered the safest in the world. It is one of the results of UK government planning in the 1940s to improve building standards.
Originally introduced in 1947, British Standard 1363 has been protecting our children ever since, UK law requires all sockets sold to conform to the BS 1363 standard, ensuring your child’s safety. Sockets are made to accept plugs which meet very exact requirements (and the law requires that plugs are certified as meeting the requirements). Nothing failing to meet those requirements should ever be put in a socket,there are no socket covers which meet those requirements!
