This outlet cover can light your way in the dark

We have a long, dark hallway that has overhead lights, but those are too bright to leave on all night.  There are a couple of outlets along the hall, and I’ve thought about buying some LED night lights to light up the hall at night.  I’ve hesitated to do that, because the hall is narrow,Read More…
