Do not pin the gate open
Propped open pool gates and faulty latches are a leading cause of drowning deaths in young children.
- Don’t prop the gate open! Keeping it closed will help prevent young children from drowning – a gate that is propped open will not.
- Keep the pool gate maintained and make sure it is self-closing and also self-latching.
ALWAYS supervise young children around swimming and spa pools.
