A shorter version of the popular Top Pull Magna Latch model more suited for a higher gate of 60” (1500mm) gates/fences so that the release knob is out of reach of toddlers. It shares the same features and is ideal for safety gates around swimming pools and child safety areas. Also ideal as a pet gate latch around backyard. The unique operating principle is brilliantly simple. 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. The concept is so advanced it boasts international awards for design excellence.
The latch is an attractive, easy to install addition to most any style of fence and provides worry-free access control to your pool. Many of our BOCA approved fence styles require the Magna-Latch on all gates. The latch has been designed to meet strict international safety codes, including all codes relating to swimming pool gate safety. The dangerous problem of a gate "resting on the latching mechanism", appearing to be latched, is eliminated when using Magna Latch. The quiet and reliable latching action means Magna Latch incurs no mechanical resistance to closure, and so suffers none of the sticking, jamming and sagging problems associated with 'mechanical' gate latches.
This model is 100 percent rust free and carries a limited lifetime warranty. It is also key-lockable for added security. Despite it technical attributes, the secret to Magna Latch is its exclusive and patented 'Lost Motion Technology'. Lost Motion is like a zone of 'free play' that allows the release knob of the latch to work independently of the latch bolt. The release knob does not rest on a spring that could sag or break, which would cause interference in other devices.
Lost Motion means Magna Latch will always trigger safely, even if the device is key-locked when the gate is open. Also, the latch can never be triggered before the gate is shut!. Magna Latch from D&D Technologies is so unique and advanced, ultra-safe technology means householders and tradespeople never again need to use old-fashioned mechanical latching devices.
Magna Latch can be easily fitted on any type of gate material with Metal, Wood, Vinyl or Chain link. It is ideal for 48” (1200mm) gates/fences so that the release knob is out of reach of toddlers. Fully Adjustable two part design provides easy installation. Vertical Adjustment is quick and easy because the latch body slides up and down. Horizontal Adjustment is achieved by adjusting a screw and can be adjusted across gaps ranging from 13-37mm allowing for quick and easy alignment on the gate as well as fine-tuning at any time to accommodate for gate sagging or movement over time.
Tested to over 400,000 cycles, the Top Pull Model has been independently verified to meet stringent international safety codes, and has also received several prestigious design awards.
