Rhoost: Blind Cord Winder Review

Thank you Rhoost for the blind cord winders to help with this review

Rhoost co-founders, Vianka Perez Belyea and Tavinder Phull started Rhoost after the frustrating experience Vianka had childproofing her own home.


One thing every parent does is childproof their home. We all want our children to be as safe as possible, and in protecting them in the home, sometimes it can be overwhelming. After safety plugs, drawer latches, toilet locks, and door knob covers, sometimes we can forget the smaller things in our homes that can be of concern with children. 


We have six windows on the floor level of our home and its a constant battle to keep our toddler away from the cords. Scary enough, I've even had to cut our child out of the blind cord once because she slipped quietly in the playroom while I was cooking dinner and wrapped her torso in the cord. It was such a scary instance for me, and since then we've been looking for the perfect solution to ensuring the safety of our children.

I think taking the cord blind winder out of the package might take longer than instillation for this product. Since we have many windows, the quick instillation is a high priority for me after safety. All you have to do is wrap the wrap the cord around the winder and you're done! It makes such a big difference afterwards because the cord is only accessible to adults of decent height, and it actually stays in place which means you don't have to worry about it falling down over time. 

While this doesn't really help when the blinds are open, we simply rest the cord on the top of the window or tuck it in to a high spot of the blinds to continue to keep it out of reach for small hands.


You can purchase these Blind Cord Winders as a 2 pack for $8.99. They come in your choice of black or white and can also be found in stores such as CVS, Target, Buy Buy Baby, and Amazon.com or diapers.com. 

Along with Blind Cord Winders, Rhoost also offers a variety of other options to childproof your home such as cabinet closures, finger guards for when they stick their tiny fingers inbetween a door hinge, table corner guards, and safety outlet plug guards.

I had my older sister give suggestions. I loved baby gates to keep them out of harms way.

One thing i did to help child proof my home was that I put rubber padding on the hard corners of my furniture.

To baby proof our home we bought cabinet locks. We also use plugs in our outlets.

We have a small living room so I put up an octagon gate and put it around the tv set and near any big furniture. She wasn't strong enough to climb it or pull it over. (lilbittypanda at aol dot com)

We have a pool. So one thing we do is lock the gate with a key lock to keep kids out. mistyharms2@yahoo.com

We put an extra chain lock up high on our front door so our daughter could not exit without our knowledge.

We have our heavy furniture bolted to our walls

We're currently expecting our first baby. However, our dog has shown us this week that if he can open the kitchen cupboards, the baby (when it's older) surely can, too! We definitely need to get cabinet latches to protect both the dog and the baby! :)

this is SO important.. kids LOVE blinds !:) especially mine!!!

Well. I wish I had found this earlier. Our son already got ahold of ours after it had fallen down, but it was still twisted around one of the blinds and it just ripped it straight out. Yay! That will be coming out of our deposit. Actually, I don't think we'll even get anything back. lol

I was and still scared of blind cords in my kids room, An item like this may help me overcome my own anxiety of cords like this. When my kids were real little, i would not keep beds, dressers or anything they could climb on near a window with a blind

We use safety plugs

We child proof our house by putting the bumpers on the ends of the coffee table

We only buy furniture that doesn't have drawers that glide open/closed. Also, we look for tables with rounded vs sharp corners.

I don't have children, but I do have dogs and I just keep everything off the floor and make sure all plants are on plant stands high enough where they can't get in to them.

Our biggest issue currently is the refrigerator! We used a commercially available fridge closer until she figured out how to open it. Now we have a series of bungee cords that are very easy for the adults to open but she has yet to be able to get the fridge open with them on :)

I LOVE gadgets that help baby proof the home! What I use to baby proof are gates, cabinet latches, a toilet latch and outlet covers!! You can never be too safe!!

Rebecca Carter said...

I didn't child proof my house. If I didnt want my son somewhere I'd close the door or put up a gate.
