We like this device, but a cheap and simple improvement would make it even better.

SnapPower also offers Duplex-style cover plates, which have two openings and one mounting screw.

I nonetheless still had trouble getting the prongs to slide over the screw terminals on the sides of the receptacle, an exercise unnecessarily rendered more difficult because the SnapPower Guidelight doesn t have retention washers on the screws used to secure it to receptacle.

To its credit, SnapPower s online user manual offers detailed troubleshooting steps to get around all the complications it mentions, and I was eventually able to mount the Guidelight after some impatient grumbling.

It s a terrific addition to my hallway that my guests in particular appreciate, because it s right outside the guest bathroom.

SnapPower

SnapPower s website shows a lot of examples of installations, such as in the kitchen and bathroom, that probably won t work in the real world if your home is up to code.
