Parents and grandparents deserve a way to make their homes safe without much effort or expense. They deserve something that is well designed and convenient to use.

The Aloola Cord Zipper, a revolutionary new blind safety system that keeps children safe with the press of a button, is live on global crowdfunding platform Kickstarter and raising funds to bring the project to life.

Research shows that an average of roughly 2 children per day are treated in the emergency room as a result of window blind accidents. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has identified window blinds as one of the top 5 hidden hazards in the home. It is a problem that is nearly invisible, but under tragic circumstances can quickly turn dangerous.

"The thing that motivates us most is the love we feel for our own kids. As a parent, you feel a mix of emotions that are all motivated by love. You feel proud whenever they learn to do something new for the first time. You feel joy as you watch them experience the world through new eyes. But you also feel fear and anxiety knowing that they are so fragile and so unaware of the dangers around them,” says co-founder Bridger Bullock on the inspiration behind the project. “We, like most parents, would do almost anything to protect our children. Realizing that there is a serious danger in almost every room in the house (window blind cords), left us feeling like we had to do something about it. We want the peace of mind knowing that our children can explore freely in our own homes.”

The Aloola Cord Zipper is a patent-pending design that offers the ultimate in safety and home protection with a clean, aesthetically pleasing solution that is easy to use. In less than a minute, blind cords can be attached to the Cord Zipper and with the push of a button will be instantly retracted. The Cord Zipper can retract up to 4 cords at once and up to 8 feet of blind cord length. Homeowners can enjoy a clean, uncluttered look at a fraction of the cost of cordless blinds while experiencing the peace of mind knowing their children are safe.

It is estimated that nearly 90% of all homes in the U.S. have corded blinds which means that most parents with young children are at risk of tragedies or accidents. To help alleviate this growing problem, the company has set a public goal to make 1 million homes safe.

"Parents and grandparents deserve a way to make their homes safe without much effort or expense. They deserve something that is well designed and convenient to use. Above all, they deserve the peace of mind that comes from putting one of the most common household dangers out of reach from their little ones,” adds Bullock. “As we set out to hit our goal of protecting one million homes, we envision a world where blind cord tragedies are unheard of and where parents can focus on simply enjoying the precious time they have with their curious little adventurers."

The Aloola Cord Zipper is currently live and available to support on Kickstarter:
