How To Retrofit
Install only cordless window coverings in homes with young children. Parents and caregivers should replace older corded window coverings with today’s safer products. However, if you prefer to keep your older window treatments, the following instructions will help you retrofit them. ELIMINATE LOOPED PULL CORDS (pre-1995 miniblinds and pleated shades)
- Cut the looped pull cord above the tassel, and remove equalizer buckle (if any).
- Insert cord through tassel and tie cord ends to secure the tassel.
INSTALL CORD STOPS (all pre-2001 horizontal blinds and corded shades)
- Lower the blind to its proper length and lock cords into position at head rail.For each pull cord:
- Pinch together a portion of the pull cord to create a loop near the head rail, then slide the cord stop over the loop end.
- Slip the free end of the pull cord through the loop to loosely knot the cord stop onto the pull cord.
- Tighten the knot to secure the cord stop one to two inches below the head rail to limit movement of inner lift cords.
