Window blind cords and chains must be kept out of reach of babies and small children and there are many solutions for new and existing blinds. Here is what you should do now if you have babies or young children living in your house or if babies or young children may visit:
Examine every blind in your home. If they have a looped control chain or cord and do not have a safety device fitted then you can easily install one of the many devices available. Ask your nearest BBSA member or ‘make it safe’ dealer who will be happy to assist you.
All BBSA members are fully accredited to the 'make it safe' campaign. In addition to this we have a number of non members who have signed up to support the campaign, a list of whom can be found here.
