The reer socket protector - your everyday hero for life with children

Anna has been at home with her baby Luca for 9 months. The baby has become more and more active in the last few weeks and has started crawling. Sometimes Anna doesn't know where her head is. She can hardly take her eyes off Luca, because he just comes everywhere and wants to try everything. Once he looks away for two seconds and Luca suddenly has his fingers on the dangerous socket. What a fright! It is now high time for Anna to look for a socket protector so that her everyday life with Luca can relax a little again.

Why do I need a socket protector?

A socket protector protects your child from dangerous electrical accidents. Unfortunately, in recent years the number of electrical accidents involving children has steadily increased. For this reason, socket protectors are highly recommended for households with children or infants ages 0 to 3 years. In their first years of life, children are driven by their curiosity and a strong sense of discovery, and at the same time, they do not yet have a feeling for possible risks or dangers. Before you know it, your child or baby suddenly has their little fingers in the socket and puts themselves in great danger. A socket protector can help and make your everyday life with your child a little bit safer.

Socket protectors: screw or glue?

Thanks to the high build quality of reer products, there is no significant difference between a socket protector that can be glued on or one that can be screwed on. In this case, simply decide which would be more convenient for you! 

Which screws do I need to mount the socket protector?

You can use the screws that are already in the socket for mounting the socket protector. However, these socket screws are not standardised so they may be too short. If this is the case, you can usually find the right screws at the hardware store. Due to the lack of standardisation, we are unfortunately unable to include the appropriate screws with the socket protector.

How do I mount the socket protector correctly?

Glued socket protector: Before mounting the protector clean the glued surface thoroughly with an alcohol-based cleaner. Then press the socket protector on for 60 seconds. Afterwards, the socket protector should not be touched for about 24 hours so that the adhesive has time to set.

Socket protector with screws: Loosen the screw in the socket, then insert the socket protector and finally tighten the screw again. Please be careful and never use a cordless screwdriver. Even when working indirectly with electricity, there is always a certain risk. When in doubt it's safer to turn the outlet's fuse off during installation.

How do I remove the socket protector correctly?

Screw-on socket protectors: Simply loosen the screw and remove the socket protector.

Glue the socket protector in place: Carefully heat the socket protector with a hair dryer before you try to remove it. In this way, the socket protector can be easily removed from the socket with the help of a blunt object.

This is a question about Socket Protection only German-speaking people will understand

German plurals are tricky. In this case, the question is if there is a change or if singular and plural are the same form and if not, which ending should the word get? To make it even more tricky, some words get an Umlaut when switched to plural and there is not a rule either. So people keep debating, which of the 3 possible plurals "Steckdosenschutz", "Steckdosenschutze" or "Steckdosenschützer" is the correct one. We tend to say "Use what you like best".
