The Perfect Upgrade For Any Home

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.346.1799

Jesse Leishman and Sean Watkins run Snap Power, a consumer tech company that specializes in outlet “cover plates.” I’m sure your wondering how they could possibly come up with anything that would make a difference and build a company centered on cover plates. Well they focused on creating simple and convenient solutions that solve some of the basic issues in today’s home and are making news and have hoards of loyal followers.

A product we love is the Snap Power Guide Light which is essentially a nightlight without the bulk and sacrificing of a plug. It’s a pathway of guide lights that are easy to install and offers a clean crisp look (remove your old cover plate and install the new one)!



A new product unveiled in December of 2016 called Snap Power Safelight is ingenious!! It builds on the Guide Light’s success. It functions as a nightlight (you can dim and turn it off) but has an incredible child-safety feature – protecting children from electric shock. When a power cord is unplugged, the sliding safety covers immediately slide into place over the openings. Children can’t poke fingers, forks or toys into the outlets! Again easy to install!!

They are going to be a household brand….just watch….another entrepreneurial company making a difference in our lives!

Another innovative home idea brought to you by Dorie Dillard, Coldwell Banker United.

Dorie, that's awesome. I just went through my house and replaced our receptacles with tamper resistant devices. The night-light covers would be a great addition. Thanks for sharing.

OMG this is so smart and cool.  It's on Amazon, so soon I'm going to see if I can write an article and promote it for them.  It will be a win win.

That is a great product and should not only use very little power, but also be easy to install as well.

Great invention. The price is like $16.95 per cover plate.

These are very cool, especially the ones to protect young ones. I'm going to share this with my daughter and son-in-law who have a very active and curious 19-month-old and they just moved into their new condo!
