I’m so excited to share a perfectly simple, genius idea for your home: SnapRays Guidelights.
Simply cut the power, take off your outlet cover, snap this one into place,
turn power back on,
turn power back on,
and you instantly have a nightlight/guidelight at the bottom of the working outlet that costs less than 10 cents a year to operate! Nothing sticking out, no bulbs to replace,
and the sensor will automatically turn on the guidelight when it is dark.
You don’t have to worry about turning on anything. I love these because:
* we had a nightlight in our previous home on the outlet on our stairs. One day when the kids were rough housing the bulb got broken and my 9 year old son got a nasty cut on his arm that probably should have had stitches.
* because of this incident we had guidelights installed on the staircase in our new home going down to the basement. Since then, I have been wishing that we put them in the other hallways so my kids don’t have to turn on all of the lights when they get up at night -- these came to the rescue without having to hire an electrician to hardwire guidelights in.
* they give just enough light. Perfect for a baby’s room so you can see what you are doing without turning on any lights that would wake them up. Or a hallway for getting up at night or in the basement so you can run down without turning on any lights.
*they are still fully functioning outlets! Our guidelights on our stairs are just lights, but these still remain outlets + give the light.
I honestly didn’t think I would be so excited about them, but I am ordering more for our downstairs hall. They are 3 for $42 or 5 for $65 or 10 for $120, plus you can get an extra 10% off when you share on Facebook or Twitter. Consider the cost of hiring an electrician to hardwire guidelights in while losing precious outlets and/or replacing nightlights when they get broken or toddlers play/walk off with them and they are a bargain. They would make perfect gifts or stocking stuffers!
I am thrilled with them and was so excited to share with you -- also, Snap Power just announced on Facebook that they won 2014 Handy Magazine, Handy Innovation Award. I’m sure this isn’t the last you’ll hear of this team:
Today, we are giving away a SnapRays Guidelight 5 pack, just tell me in the comments where you would plug your first SnapRay in! For an extra entry: share this on Facebook, pin it, or tweet and then tell us in the comments.

I try it out and if I love it, I’ll do a post to share with you. If it’s not what I thought it would be, I contact the company and let them know it’s not a good fit and you will never hear about it.
