Electrical Cord Safety

Updated May 28, 2012.

When childproofing, don't forget electrical cords and other hidden dangers.

In addition to pulling this electrical cord out of the outlet and then putting something else into the outlet and getting a shock, your child could pull on the other end and have a heavy appliance fall on him.

Be sure to keep electrical cords out of reach of your children when childproofing your home.
