New House has never been fans of blind cord loops (which have caused the blind fatalities), and have always prefered the traditional spring mechanisms with a well designed blind pull.
If you have a blind side chain, one of the best ways of making it safe is to fix it to the wall with a cleat or 'cord tidy'. You'll still be able to pull your blind up and down easily enough, but by having no loose cord loops, no toddler can get entangled.
At New House we have designed a number of cord tidy's:
We have added 'Halo', which is a solid carved-from-aluminium, strong and solid device, and made in Gloucestershire.
Yesterday we launched it at the BBSA child safety conference in Coventry and had a great response.
Halo is not on our website yet as we're awaiting photos - but it soon will be!
