I have a chain link fence around my in ground pool with a gate that swings both ways,and is spring loaded so that it automatically closes/latches. For 18 years I have been dealing with this type of garbage butterfly latch-
It never seems to latch most of the time,even after replacing it and adjusting it constantly. I have a 1 year old son so I need to have a latch that is secure enough that a 1 year old can't figure it out- BUT....going in and out of the pool area all day most "security" latches are a hassle to deal with if you have to manually latch them 50 or so times a day.
Any other ideas for self locking latches besides this kind?
