Young children can be strangled by loops in pull cords, chains, tapes and inner cords that operate the window blinds.
To avoid strangulation and entanglement, keep cords out of the reach of young children. Cords may become wrapped around a child’s neck. Move beds, cots and furniture away from window covering cords.
Do not tie cords together. Make sure cords do not twist and create a loop.
Louvolite recommends the following blinds be installed in areas where small children may be present since they contain no loose cords or loops.
- Spring return roller blinds
- Perfect Fit® roller, pleated or venetian blinds
- Vertical blinds with wand control
