Blind cords on internal blinds such as Venetian Blinds, Timber Venetians (or so called Plantation Blinds), Roman Blinds and several other types featuring exposed or dangling cords are a deadly trap for very young children. In less than one minute, a toddler can be asphyxiated, literally strangled in a fatal accident.
These cords are commonplace in both owner occupied and rental properties. The publicity programs from Australian authorities and from overseas in both the USA and Europe focus on two things; shortening the cords and ultimately the removal and replacement of all corded blinds. Also a 57c cleat to tie the cords on.
Frankly this is very simplistic and inadequate. There are millions upon millions of these internal blinds still in use. And this won’t change anytime soon. Meanwhile children are still killed and injured every year because there hasn’t been a simple easy to use safety device to prevent such accidents.
There is now! It’s called CORDAWAY! Cordaway will completely accept the entire blind cord, then with a protective snap-on cover, protect your children from being entangled.
