Health Risks

Children can become entangled in blind cords, which can quickly lead to strangulation and even death. There have been many reports of strangulation deaths and near-fatal incidents caused by blind cords. Strangulation can occur when children:

  • Place their heads through a cord loop
  • Wrap a single long cord around their neck
  • Pull inner cords out of the window covering, creating a strangulation hazard
Products involved in strangulation accidents - Horizontal Blinds: 57.5%, Vertical Blinds: 17.3%, Drapery: 12.6%, Roman Shades: 7.3%, Roll-up Shades: 4.2%, Cellular Shades: 1%
