About WCSC

The Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC), founded in 1994, is a coalition of major U.S. manufacturers, importers and retailers of window coverings dedicated to educating consumers about window cord safety.

WCSC is dedicated to:

  • Educating Americans about potential window-cord hazards facing young children.
  • Providing consumers with free retrofit kits and information.
  • Fostering the industry’s continuing commitment to maximize cord safety through the development of advanced designs, cordless products, and its support for a national safety standard.

As part of its ongoing public information campaign to increase cord-safety awareness, WCSC regularly disseminates news and informational materials through the media and partnerships with various public and private organizations concerned with child safety, health and well-being.

In addition, WCSC provides consumers with free cord-retrofit kits via an on-line order form and its toll-free number at 1-800-506-4636
