Children’s curiosity and creativity make window treatments a potential hazard. Today, there is no reason for us to lose another child through “Infant Cord Strangulation.” Hanging, dangling cords can be quite dangerous on honeycomb shades, roll-up shades/roller shades, pleated shades, Roman-style shades, and horizontal blinds. If you haven’t updated your treatments, now might be the time.
One way to increase the safety of your window treatments to retrofit them with a Safe-T-Wand, one of the newest and cost-effective lifting systems on the market today.
