The TriLatch is a ‘Push Button’ Top Pull Safety Pool Gate Latch which is the safest pool gate latch in the world. It has been designed to keep children out of pool / gated areas, as other latches can be open by using garden tools or children’s toys, or by using a chair against the fence. The TriLatch has been designed to include three points of security, a hooked striker, a lock, and a push button lift knob, making it the safest pool gate latch in the world. Previous to the TriLatch, all latches had only the top pull knob.

  • CHALLENGE
  • SOLUTION
  • IMPACT
  • The TriLatch is the safest pool gate latch in the world, and has been designed to include three points of security, a lockable striker, a push button and a lift knob which combine to ensure that children cannot operate, in turn, giving the owner peace of mind. Prior to the TriLatch, all latches on the market only use the top pull knob function; the TriLatch brings a new level of safety to an area / industry where safety is paramount.

  • The hook striker wraps around the base of the body of the latch, where the magnet engages with the striker, in order to ensure that your gate does not open even when posts sag over time. This is just another thing that shows Safetech not only things big picture, but also about the small things that contribute to make the TriLatch the safest pool latch on the market.

  • The design of the TriLatch has not only the safety of children in mind, it also aims to make people's lives easier. All locks throughout the house are at a waist level, the TriLatch changes an ongoing industry issue by moving the lock from an awkward position at the top of the latch to become uniform with the rest of your house, at waist level. Simplifying use and making life a little bit easier.
