“I normally refuse to join in campaigns but this seemed so important, and the ‘safety’ covers so absurd and dangerous, that I agreed” Author, TV presenter & Patron of FatallyFlawed Dr Adam Hart-Davis
“Sockets in the UK are designed to keep people safe. Our UK design has been better than the majority of other countries, for many years. Socket covers are an absolute con and totally unnecessary.” Engineering, Maths and Science presenter on TV FatallyFlawed Supporter Johnny Ball
IMPORTANT: This information applies to BS 1363 sockets only
The bottom line is: Safety is designed into UK sockets - plug in covers reduce safety!
