Glow-in-the-Dark Light Switch Plate — Episode 2: Total domination


In Episode 1 back on June 11, 2005 we left things in limbo, as it were: that iteration (below)


offered a "landing strip" of sorts right down the middle to guide your wandering finger to its goal.

Now comes the mighty "total glow" version (top), which

1) Illuminates the entire switch plate instead of a fraction of it, and

2) Does so without an additional piece of hardware atop the switch plate, which itself glows in the dark.

Let us now visit the text of the selling merchant's website to learn more:

    Glow-in-the-Dark Switch Plate

    See switchplates in the dark

    Our Glow-in-the-Dark switchplates are a welcome sight in the middle of the night.

    Each plate absorbs natural and electric light to provide a gentle, safe glow in the dark.

    Includes 4 standard size switch plates and 4 sets of mounting screws.

    4½" x 2¾" each.


4 for $6.95.

Have to agree that this product seems destined for the tar pits.

Without pre-exposure to an existing light source, this product wouldn't work.

I'd think a simple flashlight would be safer and far more effective.

Sorry for the misunderstanding I thought that
you were discourageing people to purchase Find=
A-Light. My apologies and I would like to send
the originator of this site a complimentary
3 pack of Find-A-Light's, When our company
developed Find-A-Light I ate slept and drank
the product to make sure that it would glow
all night, It is important to state that the
product will not glow unless it is subjected
to either artificial light or daylight, Glow
products need some form of charge to glow. It
is not a product for a basement of hallway that
receives absolutely no light. Hope this is

Anyone that can promote nightime safety as you
are is helping many.

God Bless and keep up the good work.

We are the inventor of Find-A-Light that
definitely glows all night.

We have apprx. 100,000 of these units out
there now and have had great response to its
simplicity. We also have colors that now match
the majority of light switch plates in the
country ivory and white. As far as simplicity
you can't get much simpler than using screws that
are already holding the existing plate, you are
suggesting that our product is difficult to install. To me if you don't have favorable things
to speak about whether it be a person or product
you would be best not to say anything at all. You are also using our artwork in your comparison which
I suggest strongly that you take off of your site.

Don't get me wrong I am happy that you are selling
glow plates since we have to help those that need
this especially the elderly. At some point you may
want to add find a light to your mix,

lmao at Flautist. Exactly what I was thinking. Alternatively there are those light switches that have a dim red light that goes on when you switch off the light. Not sure what that would do to your electricity bill.

I am no expert in these matters, but doesn't the switchplate have to be exposed to light before it can glow in the dark? Which would mean, wouldn't it, that you'd have to turn on a light in the room, or let in some daylight, for it to work. And THAT would mean, wouldn't it, that you didn't really NEED the glow-in-the-dark switchplate to find the actual switch. Unless, of course, the switchplate has some kind of radium or something in it, allowing it to glow ALL the time, dark or not, in which case, guiding the wandering finger to its goal over a period of time could result in, say, said finger just kind of sloughing off over a period of time?

Just wondering, is all.
