General Advice and Tips :

Children want to explore the world around them which means many household products including blinds could pose a risk for them. Be aware that unrestrained cords, braids, loop chains and wires could be hazardous to young children.

Window blind cords and chains must be kept out of reach of babies and small children to avoid the risk of strangulation and entanglement.

Move chairs, beds and cots and any other furniture away from your windows and blinds  so that children cannot climb up and reach cords.

Do not tie cords together.

Make sure that cords do not twist and create a loop.

When buying a new blind make sure it has a built in safety device.

Install your blinds and safety devices according to the correct installation instructions to reduce the risk of an accident.
