with small children need to be cautious of the choking
hazards of window blinds. As babies grow, they get
more curious making basic household items, including
window treatments, potential hazards. The dangling
cords of blinds could pose a threat to young children
and infants. As a safety precaution, there are some
safety guidelines you can follow when it comes to
your kids. First, for homes with young children, install
only cordless, motorized or wand control window blinds.
It is important to know that there are two kinds of
cordless blinds, the spring loaded lift mechanism
or the gear-assisted cordless option. To operate the
spring roll, gently tug down the blind and then either
raise or pull down. The gear-assisted blinds have
their bottom rail gently pushed or pulled up or down.
For vertical blinds, by using the wand control you
can either open or close (tilt) the rails for light
control. The window blinds that are offered with motorized
options eliminate the lift cords and allow the blind
to be operated at the touch of a button.
