How to Retro-fit Roman Shades for Safety
Because the lift cords that run along the back of roman shades pose a potential chocking hazard to small children, the WCMA/WCSC and CPSC have come up with a temporary solution. This may not work for everyone as it removes the lift cords in the shades. The roman shades must then be raised manually without a cord and then a metal clip inserted to keep them raised.
Step 1:Remove lift cord from the roman shades
Step 2:Operating the Retro-fitted Roman Shades
Special Note:If you are unsure of how this retrofit work and would like to test raising and lower the shades you may test the operation BEFORE cutting the lift cords. Simply follow step 2 and operate the shades by raising them without use of the cord and insert the metal clip provided through each loop on the back of the roman shades. We recommend to test in this manner before cutting the cords to ensure you will be happy with the operation of the retro-fitted roman shades.
