For swimming and other child safety gates, most safety standards specify the following minimum height requirements above the finished ground/fixing surface:
1) Latch release knob ‘F’ at minimum 54″-59″ (1370-1500mm);
2) Fence height of between 4′ & 6′ (1200 & 1820mm)
Always confirm these and other requirements with the appropriate pool or safety authorities in your area and install this latch in accordance with the local fence/barrier codes and regulations. Also, pool gate must open outward, away from the pool, so this latch must be fitted to the outside of a pool gate. Tools: Electric and cordless drills, drill bits, Phillips No. 2 screwdriver (hand & powered types).
Note: If mounting to steel or vinyl with aluminum or steel inserts, it is advisable to pre-drill the holes to prevent screw breakage.
