Older corded window coverings may have looped pull cords or accessible inner cords that could pose a strangulation risk to small children. In addition, tasseled pull cords need to be as short as possible so they are well out of the reach of children. Parents and caregivers are urged to check their corded window coverings for potential cord hazards and to retrofit or replace them with today’s safer products. Government safety officials and the WCSC recommend that only cordless window treatments be used in homes with infants and young children.
