Ugly Orange Sticker on your Window Covering

Ugly Orange Sticker on your Window Covering

You’ve just had your brand new blinds or shades installed and you raise them and see this bright orange sticker adhered to the bottom rail. You think, “Wow, that’s ugly, I’ll have to remove them”. You might even ask the installer to do it for you. I don’t blame you, I think they are ugly too, but consider this before you do anything. All window coverings sold in the United States and Canada are required to carry the warning label. They are not to be removed by anyone, ever. It’s like the mattress police, but worse. To make sure that you don’t remove the stickers, the industry uses very sticky adhesive glue making them almost impossible to remove. So, why is this the policy? Because when window coverings are properly installed with all of the safety devices, the risks to children and pets are drastically reduced. Therefore, if I’m asked to remove those stickers, I am obligated to decline. It is designed to be a permanent fixture on the product. If you would like more information on the organization that deals with window covering safety issues, you may go to their website. There is information on that site about how to retrofit older products to meet new standards. We may be contacted as well for further information. We encourage the media to contact us for further information.
