Safety Matters Checklist: Protect Your Children

Danmer and the CPSC offer the following safety tips to prevent deaths and injuries associated with window covering cords:

  • Examine all shades & blinds in your home for exposed or dangling cords.
  • Make sure there are no accessible cords on the front, side, or back of the product.
  • Use Kid Safe Certified cordless window coverings in all homes where children live or visit.
  • Position cribs, beds, playpens and other furniture against walls that have no windows and no window cords.
  • Permanently anchor all loops on every window covering cord anywhere in your home to the door or to the wall.
  • Ask your Danmer Designer how to replace older window treatments with cordless ones.

If you cannot afford new, cordless window coverings, contact the Window Covering Safety Council at 800-684-3434 or at www.windowcoverings.org for a free repair kit to make them safer.
