Awareness and education are vital to keeping loved ones safe. Our goal is to partner with our customers to make smart, informed choices for your home and family. Window treatment cords present a potential strangulation hazard to young children and pets. Accidents with window treatment cords often involve older products that do not conform to current safety standards. We strongly encourage you to replace corded window treatments with current safer designs in accordance with the recommendations of the Window Covering Safety Council and the US Consumer Products Safety Council who advocate that only cordless window coverings be used in homes with small children.
Armed with information, you can reduce those risks by following the safety checklist below;
Move all furniture and climbable surfaces away from windows.
Install only cordless window coverings in homes with young children.
Check you current window treatments for exposed or dangling cords.
Make sure tasseled pull cords are as short as possible.
Keep all cords well out of the reach of children.
