As a company dedicated to providing high-quality window coverings, Inches Curtains understands the importance of prioritising child safety. Blind cords, although seemingly innocuous, can pose serious risks to children if not properly managed. At Inches Curtains, we are committed to raising awareness about blind cord safety and offering products and solutions that prioritise the safety of children. In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of blind cord safety for children and how Inches Curtains is taking proactive steps to ensure the safety of our customers' little ones.

Understanding the Risks

Blind cords can present a strangulation hazard to young children, especially those under the age of five who may not fully grasp the dangers associated with them. Even seemingly harmless cords can quickly become a hazard if left within reach of curious little hands. As parents, it's crucial to be aware of the potential risks posed by blind cords but understand that blinds and blind cords are perfectly safe accessories to a child’s room or nursery when installed correctly. 

Prioritising Safety Measures

At Inches Curtains, we prioritise safety in all aspects of our business, especially when it comes to our products. Our range of window coverings is designed with safety in mind, incorporating features that minimise the risk of accidents involving blind cords. From cordless designs to cord safety devices and breakaway tassels, we offer a variety of options to ensure the safety of our customers' children.

Top Blind Cord Safety Tips:

Consider these tips to promote the safe use of your blinds:

  1. Keep cords out of reach: Preventing access to cords is crucial for safety. Corded blinds present a strangulation risk, especially for curious children and pets. Utilise cord cleats to secure cords high out of reach, or wind them up and tie them securely to prevent access.
  2. Supervise children and pets: Regardless of your blind type, constant supervision of children and pets is essential. Ensure they do not play with or become entangled in the cords, as accidents can happen swiftly.
  3. Retrofit existing blinds: If your home has corded blinds, consider retrofitting them with safety kits. These kits include cord stops that prevent cords from being pulled too far or creating excessive tension, enhancing overall safety.

By implementing these measures, you can significantly enhance the safety of your blinds, promoting peace of mind for everyone in your household.


Blind cord safety is a crucial consideration for parents, and Inches Curtains is committed to providing products and solutions that prioritise the safety of children. From our range of safe and reliable window coverings to our educational initiatives and advocacy efforts, we are dedicated to raising awareness about blind cord safety and empowering parents to create a safer environment for their little ones.
