If you’re looking for the perfect window covering for your home, there are many factors to consider. Does it look good and make sense in the space? Is it available in the color and size that I need? Will it properly regulate temperature?

These are all pertinent questions, but there are other factors to consider as well, like is your window covering easy to use? And is it safe for pets and kids to be around? You might be wondering if such a window covering even exists, and the answer is yes. It’s cordless blinds and cordless shades!

What Are Cordless Blinds?

It’s worth noting that cordless blind still use cords, as each slat still needs to be set and maneuvered. But instead of pulling a dangling cord to move the blinds up and down, you’ll press a button. This SafeLock button – located at the bottom of each rail – releases the tension around each string within the blinds device, and moves it to the position you want. When you release the button, the tension resumes and the blinds are locked into that position.

Other cordless products require even less effort – all you need to do is gently lift the bottom rail and move it to the height you want. Some work like pull-down projector screens, using spring tension.
