How can I protect my son from outlets?!?

My two year old has recently started putting items in light sockets. I have put outlet covers in them and within seconds he pulls them out and starts chewing on them. Any help please ladies?!?

  • They have face plates that are outlet covers. For them to work, you have to put the plug in and twist. http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=61911-1219-10401999000&lpage=none

  • You can even get the safety plugs at the dollar store. They aren't as fancy as the other two on here, and they can be pulled out, but the ones I used 7 years ago when my daughter was born were pretty sticky and hard to get out! I had to use my fingernails or an ink pen to pry them out!!
