Chain and cord loops on window coverings pose a serious strangulation danger to your children.
Sadly according to the statistics in Canada and the United States, 290 children have died from strangulation by cord and chain loops on window coverings in the past 10 years.*
Maxxmar’s revolutionary DecoraSafeTM Blinds protect your children from this strangulation hazard with a patented wand design that easily rolls the blind to closed or open positions without any exposed cords or chain loops.
Diagram 1 – The chain pusher tab is in the closed position and the chain is totally concealed and inaccessible.
Diagram 2 – To raise the shade push the tab on an angle away from the window. A small section of the chain becomes accessible which will enable you to pull the chain outwards and then pull it downwards. Once done, flip the tab to its closed position as in diagram 1 and the chain will automatically retract back into the wand.
Diagram 3 – To lower the shade push the tab on an angle toward the window to access the chain and then pull the chain downward. Once done flip the tab to its closed position as in diagram 1 and the chain will automatically retract back into the wand.
As parents and even grandparents, the issue of child safety and the possibility of strangulation are of the utmost concern for us at Maxxmar. We have devoted our resources towards developing this solution to ensure that no child should ever suffer injury or a fatality due to hanging cords or chain loops on any window covering.
