I was shocked when I learned The Secret Danger of Window Blinds. I hope you’ll share this with others to spread the word, because I have spent a massive amount of time with children and this thought never occurred to me, EVER!
Think about when you open your blinds to the top, there is a VERY long string that hangs down. Most of the time it hits the ground or close to it and there’s nothing on the window blind unit to solve this problem. Well today I have a safety hack for you! For only a few cents per window you can install small hooks that could potentially save a child from being strangled from blind cords. I never thought about this until my sister in law brought it up to me. Thank God before my son was able to even roll over.
I see cordless blinds in our VERY near future, after watching some prevention videos and seeing videos of children standing on objects in order to free the cords, even when they are stashed in a “safe” place. Just watch this video!!
Cordless blinds are a very safe alternative since you don’t need to do anything and there’s no cord for them to free and get a hold of, in any way!Make sure to follow Katie's Crochet Goodies on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram, or subscribe to our Weekly Newsletter! :)
