Socket Covers Article From Arnev Products, Inc.

Arnev Products, Inc. has created a new type of socket cover that complements your switch plate covers. Socketops are a new invention designed to cover old, plain receptacles. Arnev Products, Inc. manufactures Socketops with "peel and stick" laminate. They are easy to install and easy to remove if you decide to change the look of your receptacles later.

What are Socketops?
If you have just remodeled your home and installed new switch plates to compliment the new decorating theme of the home, you might be disappointed to see the ugly cream, black or white power receptacle plugs show through the center of your switch plates. The front of the electrical sockets sticks out like a sore thumb. You can't help but notice how they ruin the look of your newly decorated home. Patti Evans, the President of Arnev Products, Inc., has invented a designer line of socket covers to hide those hideous receptacles. Socketops offer a solution to ugly receptacles and rocker switch plates. Socketops are a peel-and-stick laminate that simply attaches to the old receptacle to enhance the appearance of your power sockets and switches.

Designer Finishes
Peel and stick Socketops are available in 13 finishes. Socket covers to compliment your switch plates. Choose from shiny brass, mirror black, maple wood, copper canyon, burl wood, stainless steel, brushed copper, brushed aluminum, antique brass, mirror chrome, tarnished copper, or teak burl. Finished socket covers are manufactured to fit 4 different receptacle configurations.

Installing socket covers is simple. Arnev's peel-and-stick Socketops are placed on top of ugly receptacles in just a few steps.
1. Turn off the power to the receptacle.
2. If the receptacle is not flush with the switch plate, remove the switch plate to access the receptacle's surface.
3. Clean the surface of the receptacle with Windex or other household cleaners. Dry thoroughly.
4. Peel off the backing exposing the adhesive side. Peel off hanging chads if the Socketop model has them.
5. Insert an electrical plug into the Socketops. This will help align the socket covers to the receptacles. Insert plugs into receptacle and press firmly. Remove the plugs and press firmly once more.
6. Replace switch plate covers if you removed them before installing socket covers.
Now you can cover your ugly, boring receptacles and rocker switches with socket covers by Arnev. Installation is easy. No need to call an electrician. You can do it yourself. You'll save hundreds of dollars on home remodeling projects with Socketops. They attach to the surface of your receptacles and complement your switch plates so you won't have to replace them. Socketops are non-electrical conducting and attach using a secure adhesive.

The line of designer Socketops comes in four different configurations. Arnev manufactures socket covers in the duplex receptacle, decora receptacle, GFCI receptacle, and rocker switch configurations.
