PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: Invisible NightLight

Everyone wants one. You don’t want to walk around in the dark. That’s why you need this 2-pack of Snap Power Guidelights. They are some of the easiest and most useful things you’ll ever have.

Installation is easy — remove the wallplate that’s there and install a new one. The lights at the bottom automatically light the way when it gets dark. There’s nothing more to do!

The secret is in the way that this style of outlet is designed. The wallplate has metal prongs that safely connect to the sides of the outlet. Every standard outlet of this design has these connection points. It’s like plugging something in, except it’s all internal to the outlet. You just don’t see the plug.

It’s such a simple idea, you have to wonder why no one thought of it earlier. After all, who doesn’t want a nightlight? Who wants to walk around in the dark? The high-performance, low-power LED lights cost only pennies per month to operate and you never have to worry about stubbing your toe again.
