#420: Kidlids

Actually, whilst on the subject of child safety, why don’t more potentially lethal things find themselves isolated from youngsters by the use of ‘childproof’ bottle tops?

If these are deemed generally safe enough to protect kids from dangerous drugs, then surely one could be moulded into eg an electrical socket in such a way that an on/off switch could be concealed behind a screw-off lid (the kind you have to push in hard and then unscrew).


How about knives and shavers with childproof lids or stairgate release knobs or even a tv remote in a childproof enclosure?

I’m sure the patent holder, if there is one, would be only too happy to licence this technology for a vastly increased array of applications.
