According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), window coverings that utilize pull cords present one of the greatest strangulation risks to children three years old and younger. Between 2012 and 2017, there were 50 reported fatalities associated with window cord entanglements. Studies conducted by the American Medical Association strongly suggest that there are as many as an estimated 50 more window cord strangulation deaths that go unreported.
