Child safety precautions to take

  • Chains on the bottom of vertical blinds can also pose a danger to children and pets
  • Don't allow any cords to hang near a child's cot or bed
  • Do not place a child's cot, bed, playpen or highchair near a window
  • Install blinds that do not have a cord, particularly in a child's bedroom
  • Pull cords on curtains and blinds should be kept short and kept out of reach
  • Do not hang toys or objects that could be a hazard on the cot or bed
