About

Curiosity. It’s one of the things we adore most about our sticky-fingered little explorers. But a child’s curiosity is also the biggest source of anxiety for every caring parent. 

You’ve put the sharp objects and the toxic cleaning supplies out of reach, but it’s likely you forgot one of the most important things:

Window blind cords.

They lurk in nearly every room, ready to wrap around innocent crawlers, tumble silently into cribs, and tempt imaginative little adventurers. Two children get sent to the Emergency Room every day because of window blind cord accidents. It’s time we all put a stop to it.

We at Aloola each have children of our own. We have worried for our precious little ones each time we have seen news reports of the tragedies that take place as a result of window blind cords. Our hearts go out to the parents and children whose lives have unexpectedly changed for the worse in a matter of minutes. That’s why we have set out to do everything we can to provide an easy solution. Our goal is to make 1 million homes safe.

We recognize that a goal like this is a big undertaking, but we sincerely believe we can accomplish it. To us, it is worth any effort necessary. Each time we look at our own children, we are reminded of just how important this cause is. 

FINALLY, parents can experience peace of mind and give their little tykes a safe haven to freely explore.  You can now keep them out of reach and out of mind, even when your blinds are drawn to let the light in.

Freedom from the Hassle. Escape from the nuisance of hanging, tying, wrapping, and winding each time you want some added sunlight. With the Cord Zipper, you can retract or extend your window blind cords with the touch of a button.

Beauty is in the details. It’s time to take control of the messy tangles that distract from the beauty of your home. Utilize the Cord Zipper to give each window the clean, uncluttered look it deserves.

Simple to Add or Remove. No need to get out the toolset. Easily add the Cord Zipper to your blind cords in 1 minute or less! 

Simply remove the knobs on your window blind cords, then tie the cords to the ring on the Cord Zipper. You are now ready to zip your cords up and out of reach from children and pets!

Please join our journey and help us to protect 1 million homes. By contributing to our Kickstarter campaign, you’ll be helping the Cord Zipper take flight, and you‘ll be making the world safer for the ones who deserve our love and protection the most.

We have put our own resources into research and development and into finding trustworthy partners for producing and distributing this life-saving product, but we need your help to set  our wonderful mission in motion. With the funds we raise on Kickstarter, we’ll be able to give the green light to our manufacturer and meet the demand of all the parents who are depending on us. We owe the success of our mission to you.

Risks and challenges

It’s no small task to create an affordable, high quality product that prevents tragedies and saves lives. We at Aloola realized early on that the Cord Zipper needed to withstand force, strain, and potentially constant direct sunlight while also housing flawless mechanical components and keeping the capacity to contain cords of variable quantities and thicknesses. That’s why we’ve spent extra time during the research and development stage (and produced a whole bunch of prototypes) to make sure we got it just right. For something as important as a product like this, we felt that it was worth going through as many extra iterations as it took before launching our campaign on Kickstarter. We’ve utilized a skilled product designer who has more than 25 years of experience, and a team of concerned parents who know just what boxes this product needs to check. We have learned a lot at each stage, and we are excited to be at this point; fully confident in the impact the Cord Zipper can make in any homes where children can be found!

Production

We took extra time to vet out a large number of manufacturers to make sure our production partner could meet the high standards set by us and all the parents and grandparents who are depending on us. We have learned a lot over the past 2 years while working with suppliers and assembly partners, and we appreciate all the takeaways we have gained from their feedback regarding how we could make the product easier to tool, produce, and assemble. Fortunately, we are now ready to give the green light on getting these manufactured and we feel confident that we can hit our production targets.

Our biggest priority, however, is making sure you have the highest quality product. Our eagerness to get your Cord Zippers to you as soon as possible won’t compromise our commitment to giving you the best product. Should any delays occur, we promise to keep you fully informed.

Supply Chain Risk

Our capable, hard working team at Aloola is committed to getting your Cord Zippers smoothly delivered to you as soon as possible. As with any product, there is a risk of shortages or unexpected delays. If this occurs, we will let you know immediately and get right to work on fixing the problem.
