Blind Cords – A Deadly Hazard

In Australia there are literally millions of homes with corded blinds – Venetians, Roman and Plantation. These types of blinds and others similar have been installed in Australian homes since the 1950s in huge numbers.

Blind cords are one of the most dangerous hazards in modern housing to children. The Commonwealth Government has implemented Blind Safety regulations through the ACCC. Local State Government Consumer Affairs departments issue standard warnings and demand that rental properties be all fitted with safety devices – cleats.

Cleats are simply inadequate. A cleat does not take the full length of the blind cord and even when several are fitted, the cord can be accessed by an older child and unwound, leaving a hugely risky situation for toddlers.
