Now you can put a SnapPower GuideLight anywhere

SnapPower GuideLights are easy to install outlet wallplates that add an automatic LED night light that turns on when it gets dark and turns off during the day. I reviewed the SnapPower GuideLight back in 2014 and continue to use them in several rooms of my home. Well, every room except in the bathroom and kitchen because until now, there SnapPower didn’t offer GuideLights for GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets. But now they do!

The GuideLight 2 PLUS and GuideLight 2 PLUS for GFCI are SnapPower’s newest products in the GuideLight outlet cover line. The new easy to install wallplates feature a soft diffused light bar, a low-profile ergonomic on/off switch, and brightness settings.

The GuideLight 2 PLUS and GuideLight 2 PLUS for GFCI are priced from $16 to $19 and can be found at SnapPower’s online retail store. For more info visit www.snappower.com. They should also show up on their Amazon store soon with their other products.

  1. I just purchased these and ran into a problem. These will only work with GFCI plugs where the Line terminals are on the Ground side of the plug. I had an older Cooper (now Eaton) GFCI that had this configuration and it worked fine, but I wanted to replace it with a new Leviton GFCI. It took me a few minutes to realize that it won’t work with that one for two reasons, the Line terminals are on the other end (and thus the wiring is backwards to the Guidelight) and they are offset by a 1/4″ (so it won’t make a connection when screwed on.

    1. Hi Jimmy!

      Thanks for reaching out to us via email about your concerns. I will briefly address this problem on here, but will go into more “order specifics” in my email response to you.

      So, great news! That style of Leviton GFCI outlet actually is compatible with our GFCI GuideLight.

      It doesn’t matter which pair of side screws the prongs make contact with (doesn’t have to be the line terminals). Just remove the tape from the side screw terminals in order for them to make a connection.

      Also, more good news! The prongs don’t have to sit directly on top of the center of the side screws in order for the product to pull power from the outlet; they just have to make contact with the screw terminals.

      I’ve gone ahead and emailed you a few pictures of that particular Leviton outlet with our product installed on it so you can see the prongs making contact with the screw terminals.

      I’ll email you now with further details!

      Thanks,
      Christine–SnapPower
