Electric Blanket Owners Guide

Getting into a warm bed on a cold night is one of life’s little luxuries. To help you enjoy your electric blanket safely, we’ve pulled together these important safety tips. Please take a moment to read through them.

1. Fitting your
electric blanket

Make sure it’s laid flat on the bed and tightly secured.

Check that the controls aren’t twisted or caught between the mattress and base.

2. Using your
electric blanket

Always turn off your electric blanket when you get into bed.

Regularly check that your electric blanket is laid flat and isn’t bunched up.

Regularly check that the controls aren’t twisted or caught between the mattress and base.

Never place any heavy objects on your bed when the electric blanket is on.

3. When not to use
an electric blanket

Do not use an electric blanket with:

  • Infants or very small children
  • People with disabilities
  • Anyone who is immobile or cannot operate the
       controls properly
  • Anyone insensitive to heat
  • Anyone who cannot understand the operating directions.

Keep pets away from electric blankets that are warming a bed. Sharp claws or teeth may puncture the wire insulation or damage the wiring itself.

Do not use electric blankets with adjustable beds ('hospital beds'), Murphy beds, pull-out sofas, or reclining chairs where the electric blanket or the electrical cords could become pinched in the mechanisms.
