CPSC Window Coverings Alert
Children are still becoming entrapped in window covering cords.
- The safest window coverings are cordless or have no exposed cords.
- Keep cribs, beds and furniture away from windows and cords of any type.
- Until you replace your window coverings, blind cords should be kept free of knots. If you tie the blind cords or tassels together, you are creating a serious hazard by creating a loop. Children have climbed on radiators, furniture and window sills and become entrapped in the loops.
