Hiding Cords from Kids

We were pretty lucky that our new house has an entire wall of built in bookshelves in Kidster’s room.  Super handy for storage but not so great when her monitor and Scentsy owl have cords that hang down to the wall.  I was always worried that she would pull the cord and the Scentsy would fall on her! I didn’t feel like she could play in her room ‘alone’ for very long because of that danger. After a few hints to Hubster he made a trip to Lowe’s and picked up this CordMate for about $5.
It’s basically a tube with a flat side covered in adhesive. He cut a bit of the end off so it could go around the bottom of the shelf.  Kidster can’t reach that shelf yet so now I feel pretty comfortable letting her play alone in her room for short periods of time.

What is YOUR favorite kid safety ‘hack’?
