How this latch works:

"The Protector" magnetic gate latch works as a pool safety latch when matched with self-closing hinges. (click here to find self-closing hinges for your application) When the gate closes, the magnetic striker pulls the latch pin securely into the striker. The gate cannot be forced open by a toddler with this system. The gate is opened by simply pulling up on the latch release knob on top. The latch can be locked with keys provided.

*Most swimming pool codes require a latch on a gate protecting a swimming pool area be a minimum of 54" above the bottom of the gate in order to put it out of the reach of small children.  Self-closing hinges are required on pool-safe applications. Standard gate posts on fences less than 5' high may need to be extended higher to allow the latch to be mounted higher. In many cases the latch can be mounted to extend above the posts to attain height required. (see images above) Check your local pool codes which may vary.
