Magna Latch utilizes a unique operating principle that is simple but brilliant. As the gate swings shut, a powerful "permanent" magnet draws a latch bolt from one housing into the other, latching it securely.

No amount of shaking, pushing or pulling can disengage the latch. This very popular child-resistant latch has the "Top Pull" release knob located out of reach of toddlers and is designed especially for swimming pool gates but can be installed on any gate where child safety is important, such as homes or childcare centers. The latch has been designed to meet strict international safety codes, including all codes relating to swimming pool gate safety.

The Magna Latch offers quiet, reliable latching action and incurs no mechanical resistance to closure; thus avoiding the sticking, jamming and sagging problems often associated with "mechanical" gate latches. These strong, revolutionary hinges are injection-molded from a special blend of glass-fiber reinforced polymers, which means they never rust, bind, wear, sag or stain.

The superior strength and rust-free performance of "Tru-Close" means the hinges offer double the life expectancy of any comparable product. The internal spring is made of high-grade stainless steel to ensure smooth, powerful closure and long life, even in the harshest seaside or arid environments.

The patented, spring-loaded adjuster allows instant, incremental tension adjustment using only a screwdriver. This clever adjustment feature overcomes the typical spring fatigue problems associated with fixed-tension gate hinges. All latches adapt readily to most new or existing gates of any material, metal, wood or vinyl. This model is key-lockable for added safety.
