Some think these are too easy to remove, others think they're to difficult to remove. We've had both experiences, depending on what type of outlet or power strip or other setup we've used it on. Most problematic for us is that the prongs break off easily. Sometimes when we do fight to get it out of a plug, especially if it overlaps another cover on a strip, we'll pull on it unevenly and a prong ends up bent/dangling/broken off. When down to one prong, you can still use it but be extra cautious when removing it next. Getting a prong stuck in the outlet would be difficult to fix without turning off the circuit.

These do the job and are a good price-- BUT they are clear. I thought this was totally fine in the beginning and it was.... until my child could walk and started noticing the plug behind the plastic. If I had to purchase all over again, I would definitely go with a solid white color because it detracts from their interest in what is behind the plastic since you can't see the holes. I definitely have to pull her away from the sockets more than I would like since she can see through them. That said, they do exactly what they are meant to do, so I would recommend.

Even after installing foam socket sealers cold air still pours through unused receptacles via the small openings for the electrical plugs on outside walls. These plastic outlet plugs fit snug are effective in against cold air infiltration. Unused phone jacks were doing the same thing and since I no longer have a wired landline I replaced the jack plates with blank plates and foam sealers. Every little bit helps when it’s ten degrees outside.

I have probably 5 different versions of outlet plug covers in my house. I purchased these because they were the cheapest with good ratings. (I also do not know who manufactured the old ones. Some came with the house when we moved in, and others were given as shower gifts a while back.) However, I found them cumbersome to get in flush. I feel like other models fit in better and have easier removal for adults. They work, but for a couple dollars more, I would have tried another company.

My daughter is 8 months old and very active and getting into everything. She recently noticed the outlet on the wall and became obsessed with it so I knew it was time to cover those bad boys up. There is nothing overly special about these outlet covers, they are very basic. I do like that they are clear and they are difficult to get out. I mean if they were easy they wouldn't be doing their job. I have found if I use the prong from the vacuum I can get it out easier. I will keep my post updated as she gets older and her dexterity and strength improve and she can start removing them.

These are exactly as expected. They're a thick quality plastic so I'm not worried about the breaking or chipping. They're also just thick enough that I can easily grip them to unplug them if needed, but not thick enough for my daughter to pull on.

These are terrible. They are extremely easy to pull out of the outlet, and almost fall out on their own. My house is brand new, so I am not plugging these into old/worn sockets - just you standard $15-at-home-depot grounded 3-prong outlets.

You get what you pay for, I suppose. These are going back.

First of all, we don't have babies in the house; we are childfree!
The reason I bought these, is to possibly prevent and avoid insects to come visit my condo from my dirty neighbor below; this is true!
We keep our unit impeccable and a couple of times I saw a small cockroach wandering aimlessly on our kitchen counter. It could be coming from the kitchen sink although doubtful as we use those metal mesh sink covers. Or it could be from some produce or vegetables brought in from the market. I really don't know how they showed up here once or twice.
So I bought these to cover the outlets when not in use to just to avoid possible insects to come inside. For my particular case,I would have preferred that some kind of pulling tab molded into the back of each one so it's easy to pull them out. But that would defeat it's purpose, as a child could potentially do the same, so I understand this.
Now...if you have babies to protect, this is a fantastic item!
Simple technology, cheap and very effective. They fit very snugly into the outlet and are hard to remove, even for adults. I like the idea of another reviewer that simply uses one of the two prongs in the plug he wants to use, to slide under an edge and pry it open instead of using your fingernails. Highly recommended for baby protection. Buy it!

My 12 month old removed these on her FIRST ATTEMPT. Way too easy. I recommend the ones by Dreambaby. It's been several months and she still hasn't been able to remove a single one.

I ended up throwing these away. I have been using the same outlet covers for 8-9 years, ("Parents" brand), and after so long and losing some, we needed more because we have 4 kids. After seeing the reviews I purchased these, and they're just way too easy to pull out of our outlets (which are new outlets). My kids pulled them right out, as did I. Not sure if I just got a bad batch or what, but these just did not work.
