Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Less tacky than tape! So glad I found these after a quick Google search! These are perfect for keeping the switches on in our new home. They're a great alternative to the tape we were using out of desperation. I actually like that there's a cut-out on one side so you can still operate the switch if you intentionally need to do so. Highly recommended! November 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy and still allows access to operate switch This cover discourages, but does prevent, the usage of a standard wall switch. You can still operate the switch by reaching in one side. So, I would not say this is for childproofing applications. Easy to install and performs well. November 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed In the past I had used adhesive tape or masking tape to cover light switches that I didn't want to be moved. But, the tape didn't look very nice and left adhesive residue. These covers are exactly what I was looking for. They blend in well with our white faceplates and switches. And, with one side being open, if you do need to throw the switch you can get your finger in there to do it. July 31, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase!! Great purchase if you have switches that should not be turned off! Also keeps little ones fingers off of important light switches! May 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy fix to an annoying problem Like "Homesolution" stated above these are great little covers that are opened on one side so that you can still get to the switch if needed. These are perfect for those switches that can be easily turned off when you don't want them to be (ie motion sensors, entertainment centers, clocks) .... or worse yet, those lights that get left on and you don't see them right away (ie. the attic, garage, outdoor shed, work areas, etc) November 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Light Switch Guard What a great idea and product! Now motion light switch, outlet switch, etc. is "protected" from accidentally being turned off. No more resetting the motion lights and/or clocks! An inexpensive solution to an aggrevating problem! Thanks, Home Depot! We appreciate you! December 29, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect I don't know who decided that a light switch should be connected to an outlet, but the one in my room is. This thing is wonderful, it stops people from accidentally turning my "light" off, but allows me to have access if needed. September 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than I hoped When I opened the package it appeared they would cuase the switch to be inoperable. Not so -- they do the inteded job perfectly. October 14, 2014
