Child Safe Cord Control Done Right

It’s not always possible to go completely cordless, just think of that old Nintendo system you are still playing on. The innovation of the Continuous Cord Loop with cord tensioner allows cord access in a safe and manageable way by fastening the cord securely to the window frame making adjustments easy. Another solution is the UltraGlide option, this retractable cord is short in length, adjusts by pulling side to side, and remains less accessible to our little friends. Two great options when discussing how to childproof your home.
