Disclosure: I'm bringing you this review of MagnaLatch Alert+ gate lock as part of a collaborative effort with D&D Technologies. All opinions shared are my own.
As parents, we want the best for our kids. That's a given. We go through the steps to properly babyproof household areas so that they're safe. We also encourage kids to be safe in the house - no running, be careful going up and downstairs, and not to climb bookcases. And as much time as my kids spend indoors, they spend an equal amount of time outdoors when the weather is nice. But how can we make sure they're safe from the dangers of being outdoors?
D&D Technologies has a way to ease our minds about the issue of outdoor child safety. They are the makers of the top-selling MagnaLatch® system which has set the standard for child safety gate latches for more than 25 years. They recently D&D Technologies recently introduced the award-winning MagnaLatch® ALERT, the world’s first and only combined gate latch and electronic alarm system, offering the ultimate security and protection for gates around swimming pools, homes, childcare centers, schools and wherever safety is critical.
MagnaLatch® ALERT is the world’s first and only combined gate latch and electronic alarm system and features dual electronic warnings: bright, flashing LED lights, and an audible alarm. The MagnaLatch ALERT models allow you to hear and see from a distance when a gate is left opened or unlatched – offering the ultimate security and protection for gates around swimming pools, homes, childcare centers, schools and wherever safety is critical.
How does MagnaLatch ALERT work? Simple. If the latch is opened and/or gate is left unlatched, the new visual alarm gives a warning with flashing LED lights, while the audible alarm beeps and turns into a full alarm after 15 seconds.
Additionally, there are some other great key features the MagnaLatch ALERT offers:
o NEW Rekeyable security lock: The 6-pin lock cylinder can be rekeyed, by a locksmith, to match other locks around the home.
o NEW Visible Lock Indicator: Shows you at a glance whether MagnaLatch ALERT is locked or unlocked.
o NEW Disarm Feature: The touch-sensor disarm feature allows an adult to temporarily disarm the ALERT for up to 15 minutes.Feature not to be used on pool or safety gates.
o NEW Safe, ergonomic lift knob: With its new design, the lift knob is now more conveniently shaped and child resistant than ever.
The MagnaLatch ALERT is available in two different models: the Top Pull and the Vertical Pull. Whichever you choose, you can rest easy knowing that both gate latches are made from industrial strength polymers, aluminum and stainless steel that eliminate rusting and jamming, making it the perfect choice for any outdoor space where safety is a must.
The MagnaLatch ALERT Top Pull model is ideal for all child safety or pool applications, while the shorter Vertical Pull model offers protection on pet security and general-purpose gates around the home and garden.
