    Default Window Blinds Cords are Dangerous to Children

    This is already a sticky thread here on Vec C, at the top of this section, but I wanted to post it again.

    Sadly, yet another child has lost his life after getting stuck in the loop of a window blind.

    If you, or anyone you know, has a window blind or curtains with any kind of looped cord or chain which is used to open and close them, please look at the safety information below.

    Quote:
    RoSPA is aware of at least 21 children dying in blind cord accidents in the UK since 1999 (with 10 occurring since the beginning of 2010).

    Please look here for safety info:

    This is awful, can't believe there has been such an increase in the last few years. If only net curtains were still in fashion, design trends shouldnt cost lives!
