I'm assuming this is for 'French' plugs? (i.e. what the English Wikipedia calls 'French:' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AC_power_plugs_and_sockets#CEE_7.2F5_.28French.29.28Type_E.29)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A... -anonymous

yes, looks the same :)

I think this is a dangerous thing. How will it stop kids? What happens when the handle breaks off, and someone tries to dig the cover out with a butter knife? IF you need a cover for your outlets go to the store and buy one that is U.L. approved!

The handle is not just a handle in the air easy to brake, it has a metal ground pin inside (a part of european outlet). And of course the design is parametric, so you can define thickness etc. I'll upload the SCAD file in a minute, don't know why it didn't attach first time.

Of course it is not for kids strong enough, it's for very small ones who touch everything while crawling :-) This thing will not enable them to touch anything inside the outlet.

And last but not least - it's not the primary protection. Even If I don't have it, the 230V line has RCDs all over the
