D&D Technologies Unveils Combined Gate Latch and Electronic Alarm System

Following the success of MagnaLatch®, the original and still the best-selling safety gate latch in the market, D&D Technologies introduces the award-winning MagnaLatch® ALERT, the world’s first and only combined gate latch and electronic alarm system.

Now featuring dual electronic warnings: bright, flashing LED lights, and an audible alarm. This product is currently available for purchase on Amazon.

This integrated safety gate latch can be easily installed in minutes without the need for special tools, screws or wiring. See the MagnaLatch ALERT in action in this installation video.

“Gates control access to properties and when securely closed provide a barrier to help protect loved ones and possessions,” says Jim Paterson, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, D&D Technologies. “If a gate is left open or not securely latched, a consumer may have an open door to danger. D&D Technologies invented MagnaLatch ALERT to provide consumers with a clear warning when a gate is not completely closed and latched, providing its intended level of security. Most gates are not visible from inside a home. We designed ALERT with both audio and visual warnings to help alert consumers to a potential risk, regardless of where they are on their property.”

If the latch is opened and/or gate is left unlatched, the new visual alarm gives a visual warning with flashing LED lights, while the audible alarm beeps and turns into a full alarm after 15 seconds. In addition to these new features, MagnaLatch ALERT offers:

  • NEW Rekeyable security lock: The 6-pin lock cylinder can be rekeyed, by a locksmith, to match other locks around the home.
  • NEW Visible Lock Indicator: Shows you at a glance whether MagnaLatch ALERT is locked or unlocked.
  • 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.
  • NEW Safe, ergonomic lift knob: With its new design, the lift knob is now more conveniently shaped and child resistant than ever.

MagnaLatch ALERT is available in two models: the Top Pull and the Vertical Pull. 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. While the MagnaLatch ALERT Top Pull model is ideal for all child safety or pool applications, the shorter Vertical Pull model offers protection on pet security and general-purpose gates around the home and garden.
