The world’s first and only integrated safety gate latch and alarm. 

MagnaLatch® has set the standard for child safety gate latches for more than 25 years. We’ve sold millions of this Aussie invention worldwide.

Now the MagnaLatch® ALERT models set entirely new levels for safety gates around swimming pools, childcare centers, schools, homes or wherever child safety is critical.

The MagnaLatch® ALERT offers dual electronic warnings: bright, flashing LED lights, and an audible alarm that sounds if a gate is opened or left unlatched. So you can see at a glance, and hear from a distance, if your gate is not secured.

While the Top Pull model is ideal for all child safety applications, the shorter Vertical Pull model offers protection on pet security and general-purpose gates around the home and garden. A single beep upon opening warns of visitors or intruders.

The MagnaLatch® ALERT is the ultimate safety gate latch, and the ideal alert device for when you can’t turn your back for a second.

For more detailed product information, see the installation animation on this website.

Always confirm local Council Authority requirements before installation on swimming pools.
