it seems to me that plastic covers break time to time and most likey by the child who will then stick something in box. if the outlet or switch is taped up there is less chance of possible shock and enough time for the parent to replace broken plate.


why or they still making plastic plates when there is the unbreakable kind out there. (those wont break)
