Blinds Chalet is reminding parents to choose cordless blinds or retrofit current blinds in order to avoid potential hazards with looped window blind pull cords.
Suggested Window Blinds Safety Guidelines:
- Keep cribs, beds and large furniture items away from windows/window treatments
- Use cordless window covering products exclusively throughout your home
- If corded blinds or drapes are in use: keep out of the reach of children, keep continuous-loop cords are permanently anchored to the floor and tasseled pull cords are kept short, have cord stops properly installed so movement of inner lift cords is limited, lock cords into position when horizontal blinds/shades are lowered.
Blinds Chalet's Ron Manwaring said, "We want to raise awareness about the potential hazards of looped blind cords and children. There are retrofits available for your present blinds, or cordless blinds are widely available when shopping for new blinds. The Window Covering Safety Council is an organization that promotes awareness, visit their website http://www.windowcoverings.org or visit our website for more information."
