Add some accessories to your outlet faces

I’ve always wondered whether or not American power outlets were intentionally designed to look like a gasping face. They’ve even got the one prong larger than the other, as if they were trying to raise an eyebrow. One company seems to share my thoughts, as they’ve released a product that takes the whole face idea to a new level.

Yes, Creative Outlet Stickers are rather silly. But you know that anyone who looks over and sees that spare outlet in the living room with a mustache and glasses is going to do a double-take. If you’re all about making people laugh, then this will be $3.50 well spent.


  • That'll get the kiddies interested in electricity too! You can laugh about the funny faces too on the way to the hospital. Double fun!!

  • fwiw, more modern electrical codes require outlets to be installed rotated 180 degrees with the ground plug hole on the top. This prevents things falling onto a plugged in device and creating a short across the two hot prongs and potentially a fire.
