  4. Tighten the knot to secure the cord stop one to two inches below the head rail to limit movement of inner lift cords.

Basic Window Cord Safety

What to Look For…
Children and window cords don’t mix. When window cords are accessible to small children, these seemingly harmless products may become strangulation hazards.
This is especially important with older window coverings that may not meet the latest national standard for window cord safety.   If at all possible, use only non-corded window coverings in homes where infants and young children are present.
If you have corded window coverings and can’t replace them with today’s safer products, check them for the following hazards and order our free retrofit kits as needed.
  • Move all cribs, beds, furniture and toys away from windows and window cords, preferably to another wall.

  • Keep all window cords well out of the reach of children.  Eliminate any dangling cords.
  • Make sure that tasseled pull cords are as short as possible
  • Check that cord stops are properly installed and adjusted to limit the movement of inner lift cords. 
  • Continuous-loop cords on draperies and vertical blinds should be permanently anchored to the floor or wall.
