Window Blind Cords and Safety Tassels

Safety tassels for window blind cords, and tension devices on vertical blinds and drapery cords can help prevent deaths and injuries from strangulation in the loops of cords.

Cut the loop on window blind cords and use safety tassels to help prevent children from strangling themselves. Be sure that vertical blinds and drapery cords have tension or tie-down devices to hold the cords tight. When buying new miniblinds, vertical blinds and draperies, ask for safety features to prevent child strangulation.

You can get free cord safety tassels from the Window Covering Safety Council by calling 1-800-506-4636.
