The window treatments in your home can pose a huge strangulation danger for young children, if they become entangled in the cords of blinds. In the 1990s, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) encouraged product recalls and revisions to reduce the risks. If you have older blinds in your home, there is a simple way to alleviate the hazard without compromising the operation of your window blinds. A retractable blind winder contains and stores the cords out of reach.
