It looks like a cross between a Hostess Ding Dong and a fully popped pan of Jiffy Pop (do they even make that anymore?), but hey, this thing works! 🙂
Function over appearance. Here’s my “Jiffy Pop Smart Meter Cover” (aka “Poor Man’s Smart Meter cover”). It brings radiation readings down to HALF that of the expensive smart meter cover my neighbor purchased ($120)! Hands down, the professional model is more attractive, but that’s not what I was after. (If you decide to go the professional meter cover route, you can find one here. In their defense, the meters they’re putting in my neighborhood, and likely everywhere else now, are much stronger than previous models, so mitigating them is a real challenge.)
With a little ingenuity, I’m sure you can improve on my design, (send me videos of what you come up with and I’ll share them!) but here’s what I used:
— 8 layers thick, I made a 3.5”wide band of heavy duty aluminum foil (to go around the meter). I attached it with 2 small strips of duct tape
— Faceplate – 6 layers of aluminum foil with a small hole for the signal to get out
— Aluminum screen to cover everything and a strap to hold it in place
– Aluminum foil – $3
– Strap – $2
– Aluminum Screen – I had some in the garage
– Total cost roughly $5.
Readings before cover -> 1600 μW/m2
Readings after cover-> 229 μW/m2
I also covered the inside the garage with 2 ft all around the meter ( 4ft in all) with 6 layers thick heavy duty aluminum foil (held in place by duct tape)
Readings inside garage before the foil -> 2000+ μW/m2
Readings inside garage after the foil -> -0-
Readings inside house after smart meter cover and garage wall covering – next to nothing.
We also put Stetzer filters in rooms where we spend the most time.

For the first time since the installation we don’t feel like we’re being microwaved in our own home!
