Safety information for new parents

BS1363 socket outlets have shutters over the two live pins to prevent access when no plug is inserted. There has been a lot of news in the press over the last couple of years about the use of socket covers. Generally speaking these are far less safe than not having them and there have been a number of deaths due to these being used.
