I live in Oregon and we often get quite a bit of rain year round. The damp and wet certainly present issues to find solutions for like when needing to have things plugged up for long-term or temporary. Last month, I was introduced to the Twist and Seal which is an innovative cover for cord plugs.
It’s available in a variety of sizes and for indoor or outdoor use, the cover prevents babies or children from playing with plugs and risking an electric shock. This is something as a mother of three children ages 8, 5, and 6 months old that love playing outside come rain or shine that can help prevent any unwanted accidents when it comes to electrical shock.
After seeing how these work, I was sold. My kids didn’t even bother these when they were around. The green color makes these blend in outside well making them nice for yard or holiday decorating. It’s great I can order these online and find them in my local Home Depot store. The material is Polyurethane 100-percent lead free and contains no phthalates. There’s a 3 year warranty and these are made in the USA! The sizes vary and perfect for select things like Holiday lights, regular cords & extensions, and industrial use.
I asked my husband on his thoughts with this safety solution and here’s what he had to say
These are great tools/accessories for working outside or when you’re plugging in something like outdoor lights. They seal around the connections of the extension cord and whatever is plugged it. They also make it so if you’re using a tool, they won’t pull apart as it holds them together.Using standard size plugs, extension cord & stapler, drill, etc., there was no trouble enclosing them in the covers.They feel sturdy and well made. They also have plenty of clasps to hold them shut. I am confident they won’t open on accident.
I haven’t used the dome which you can put things like power strips in. Considering the amount of wetness around here, I’d be wary using it for extended use. If it was off the ground, and just some light rain I wouldn’t worry. That isn’t to say it doesn’t work, but, caution with water and electricity is always warranted.I like these products and can recommend them.
