According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), roughly nine children under the age of five years old die every year due to strangulation from window coverings with cords. From January 2009 to December 2021, there were more than 200 occurrences involving children up to the age of eight years old due to strangulation dangers from window covering cords. Nearly half of those children died, the remaining children suffered severe injuries including scarring around the neck, quadriplegia, and permanent brain damage.

Whether you are looking for blinds for your new home, renovating your existing home, or adding a nursery or play room, it is vitally important to prioritize safety. The CPSC strongly recommends that consumers take the time and care to choose cordless window coverings to keep children and pets safe.
“Young children can quickly and silently become strangled on pull cords, continuous loop cords, inner cords, or any other accessible cords on window coverings. Cordless window blinds, shades, draperies, and other window coverings are the safest option.” - CPSC Chairman Alex Hoehn-Saric
