Your safety is our top priority.

 

Of the many window treatments we have created for homes, some may present a safety hazard for young children. Although we are not aware of any entanglements or injuries involving these products, we are voluntarily recalling these products by providing free retrofit kits designed to fix this critical issue.

To learn more and order a free retrofit kit, call us at 1-800-845-8637. We’re available Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. ET.

This voluntary recall affects certain cellular shades, roller shades, soft horizontal shades, and Roman-style solar shades (see FAQ for additional details). We have recalled these products in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

 

Call our hotline at 1-800-845-8637 to receive a free retrofit kit designed for your window treatment.
