Kid Switch Review

KidSwitch is a glow-in-the-dark light switch extender,
that can be used with either toggle or decora style light switches.  
KidSwitch can be installed and used on any single, double, triple,
or more toggle or decora style switch plate.
(For decora switches, the adapter is required).

KidSwitch extends down 12" from the switch, allowing toddlers to
safely reach and operate room lights.

To install on a toggle switch, you only need a screwdriver!
Remove the existing switch plate screws,
and replace them with the KidSwitch screw sets.

To install on a decora switch, no tools are required!
Simply peel and stick the adapter and then snap the KidSwitch into place!

To operate and turn the light on -
simply push the moon handle up.

To turn the light off -
simply pull the moon handle down.

My house is older and that makes certain things hard... like my cupboards are so tall I have to stand on a chair to reach the top 2 shelves,and I'm 5'5. So it really was no wonder my kitchen switches were to tall for my toddler to reach, and  it never seemed to fail, every time I would sit down I would realize that the kitchen light was left on.. so that meant having to get back up, to turn it off, or worse sometimes, I would have to pick up my 2 year old son, so he could do it. I hated that fact but it was to much of a mess to lower the light switch so what was I to do?

KidSwitch came to my rescue with this one... now I actually get to sit down for 5 minutes here and there, because my kids can turn on the light themselves,or should I forget to turn it off, I can ask them to do it, and even my 2 year old now will.
I will say this my husband hates it, and complains constantly, but he's rarely here anymore with his work schedule, and I think it's the greatest thing, the kids all love it to.

installing it was super easy, and the more to use it the easier it gets. Almost like it's losing up a little which makes it easier to turn the light on... would I recommend the  KidSwitch ? Yes I would they are not expensive, and it allows for some independence in the little ones.  I don't think the $8.95 price tag is to expensive either.

Buy it:
