SLATE HILL, N.Y., June 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This Father's Day, consider something a bit more practical than a tie, suggests Eric Tonnesen, inventor of the EZFaceplate (http://ezfaceplate.com/) electrical outlet cover. Replacing ugly, dirty or cracked electrical outlets with standard tools and materials is a hassle, not to mention potentially dangerous, and licensed electricians can charge $75 or more just for walking in the door. On the other hand, anyone can install EZFaceplate in seconds, with no fear of getting hurt or damaging the outlet; consumers can purchase EZFaceplate online at ezfaceplate.com or Amazon.com, or in the store at True Value in Zionville, Indiana.
"EZFaceplate is a simple solution to an otherwise pricey problem," says Tonnesen, who wasted lots of money needlessly paying electricians for his renovation projects before inventing the EZFaceplate. "This is a product that I use and truly believe in, and I want to share it with everyone," adds Tonnesen.
Safety and practicality are core benefits of EZFaceplate. The product is composed of a heavy-duty nylon resin that's both impact resistant and flame retardant. EZFaceplate will never crack or scuff the way ordinary faceplates so often do. No competitor manufacturer can make this claim and back it up with a guarantee.
By far the greatest value of EZFaceplate is the time and money saved when consumers don't have to hire an electrician. Installation takes just seconds and requires only a flathead screwdriver. Because the hardware is precision manufactured, it fits perfectly and firmly over the outlet every time. There's zero risk of getting shocked or otherwise damaging the outlet.
"Our motto is: Don't pay to replace - EZFACE! This is the only product that will save the consumer both time and money," says Tonnesen.
The entrepreneurial community has taken notice of the product's tremendous upside: EZFaceplate was a Dream Big America winner for the month of March. As a "voice for entrepreneurs," Dream Big America is a weekly national radio show that gives a platform to the nation's most promising innovators and their products.
"Getting American and Canadian patents was a definite win," says Tonnesen, "and seeing the product in True Value was an equally big deal. Looking ahead, my goal is for EZFaceplate to secure retail distribution deals that will place the product in every major hardware store chain, coast to coast."
Tonnesen has confidence that EZFaceplate will surpass the expectations of the buying public; he's so confident, in fact, that every purchase will be backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Defective faceplates will be replaced at no cost. Anyone simply unhappy with the product can return it for a full refund, no questions asked. As an introductory offer, EZFaceplate is available in packs of 10 for only $19.95; shipping is free within the US.
EZFaceplate is available in white, beige and glow-in-the-dark colors, and can be painted to match any color or décor.
Adds Tonnesen: "Once homeowners, contractors and interior designers see the value of EZFaceplate, I believe it will quickly become a household name."
The idea for EZFaceplate was born in 2006, when Eric Tonnesen was rehabbing houses and spending extra money that was not necessary. Tonnesen and his colleagues were tired of having an electrician replace all of the outlets in a house because they were old, painted over or just dirty. These electricians were being paid big money to change perfectly good, working outlets. Tonnesen struck upon the simple idea that if you can reface cabinets, you can just as easily reface outlets – and that is how EZFaceplate was brought to life. This is the only faceplate cover that helps the consumer save money.
