Children have strangled to death on the cords of window blinds, shades, draperies and other window coverings, and this can happen in mere moments, even with an adult nearby. The safest option when young children are present is to go cordless.
Window cord strangulation is often silent, so parents or caregivers nearby may not realize that a tragedy is happening.
