To coincide with the launch of our new 'Free Home Consultation, Free Measuring & Free Quotation' service, we hope to appear on TV3 on the Ireland AM programme, on Wednesday 28th March 2012, to do a window blind, child safety device installation demonstration.
We will assemble three props on the studio set, each with a built in window with a blind attached. We will demonstrate how easy it is to install a child safety device on the chains of a roller blind and a roman blind, and to the cords of a wooden venetian blind. After we complete the installation of the three safety devices, we will do a free ‘give-away’ of 1000 safety devices to the first 250 applicants who request safety devices from Myblinds.ie.
Accidents in the home involving children getting caught up in the chains of window blinds and cords have on occasion, ended in tragedy. These accidents can be prevented by fitting child safety devices to these chains or cords. The safety devices are fitted with screws to either the window frame or to the window recess. The TV demonstration will show people how and where on their windows they should fit these devices.
We are hopeful that this demonstration will help to make parents in particular and child-carers in general, more aware of the potential danger to children posed by chains and cords on blinds and curtains in the home. We think this safety demo will show how easy it is for people to reduce this risk by making their blinds and their home more ‘child-safe’.
At Myblinds.ie we have demonstrated the fitting of child safety devices on the different types of blinds in our videos in the 'You measure and Fit' section of our website and we offer child safety devices with all our blinds, free of charge, to all our customers.
