Window Blind Cleat
Window dressings are a necessity for privacy, and many homes have some form of window blinds to block light and unwanted eyes. But the cords from those blinds have the potential to be dangerous; they are a recognized choking hazard. What can the concerned parent do? The most common way of handling blind cords is with a device called a cleat, which is mounted on the wall near the blinds so that the cord can be safely wrapped around it when not directly in use. Alternatives exist, though, so shop around and find an idea that suits your home while keeping your little one safe.
