Event Details

D&D Technologies®, the inventor and manufacturer of the MagnaLatch® Pool Safety Gate Latch has partnered with the National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA) to establish Check Your Pool Gate Month. Drowning is the leading cause of death in children aged 1 – 4 years, and the majority of the children that drown in swimming pools most commonly gain access to the pool area through a faulty fence or gate. Combined with constant child supervision and other layers of protection, physically checking your pool gate and maintaining your pool gate regularly to ensure it self-closes and self-latches at all times could help prevent drownings. Check Your Pool Gate was created to remind pool owners of the vital need to ensure pool fences, gates, latches, and hinges are secure, and adjusted correctly, and incorporate multiple layers of protection to help secure the pool area from unauthorized entry. A few minutes is all it takes to check pool fences and gates, and this simple routine done regularly could help save the life of a child.
