Blinds To Go Recalling 200,000 Custom-Made Window Shades for Safety Hazard
Blinds To Go is recalling about 200,000 custom-made window shades.
The shade's chain or cord loop can slip out of the hold-down device, posing a strangulation hazard for small children.
No injuries, however, have been reported.
The recalled custom-made shades have a hold-down device for the cord that is a clear, P-shaped plastic hook. The cord or chain loop of the window shades clips into the device. The hook is screwed to the side of the wall or window during installation.
The piece was shipped with the Blinds To Go custom-made roller shades with Sidewinders, Smartlift pleated and cellular shades, Panel Tracks shades, and Serenity shades.
They were sold exclusively at Blinds To Go showrooms and online from January 2009 to November 2014 for between $60 and $770.
Consumers can contact the company to order a free retrofit kit that includes a new hold-down device and instructions on how to replace the recalled part. Customers also can bring the window shades to a local showroom to have the new device fitted on the shades.
Blinds To Go customer service can be contacted at (800) 254-6377.
