Product Spotlight: Magnetic Locking Latch
When it comes to pool safety, you can never be too careful. Now obviously, we are pretty big fans of pool fences. But besides a sturdy, tall pool fence, you also need to worry about who can easily enter and exit the area. For this reason, today’s product spotlight will be the MagnaLatch Series 3 Top Pull Magnetic Locking Latch.

Why Use a Magnetic Locking Latch?

There are many reasons to install a pool fence with a magnetic locking latch. For one, a self-closing pool gate can provide security that many homeowners never even realized they needed. A properly installed pool fence provides a powerful barrier to entry to your pool or hot tub area. A pool fence should be tall enough to prevent children and pets from clambering over it, but should also be strong enough to resist being pushed down. You can learn all about what makes a good pool fence in our related blog post.

Of course, a pool fence only works when properly locked up. That’s where a self-closing magnetic locking latch comes in handy. You see, this type of latch is intentionally designed to automatically shut behind you. With this feature, a homeowner will not need to manually lock up each and every time they enter or exit the pool area.

A self-closing magnetic locking latch is designed to close and automatically lock up for you. There isn’t any extra effort needed. That’s great news since, according to the CDC, a tremendous amount of drownings occur when adults are actually present. This helps to cut down on the danger by removing a potential hazard from your yard. In this regard, a magnetic locking latch, like the MagnaLatch Series 3, works as an extra layer of protection for your home.

Adds an Extra Layer of Protection

Beyond our product spotlight, both the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend installing a self-latching, self-closing pool gate. A magnetic locking latch, like the MagnaLatch Series 3, can be a huge help to any pool owner.

Of course, it never pays to put all your eggs into a single basket. Instead, try adding multiple layers of protection to your home. Beyond a pool fence and self-latching gate, consider these precautions:

  • Add high locks to all of the doors and windows that lead to the pool.
  • Add alarms on the doors and windows that access the pool.
  • Place an extra alarm inside the pool to warn if someone is in the water.
  • Consider swimming lessons for everyone in your family.
  • CPR training is more important than most people realize. It can absolutely save you or a loved one’s life.

Combined, these measures will help to keep your family safe and secure. Every little bit counts when it comes to swimming safety. Good luck and enjoy the summer!
