A voluntary recall is underway of unsafe components of gate latches for swimming pool fences which can cause the gate to be locked in an open position, posing a potential drowning risk for children.

An investigation into the imported products found that they do not comply with Australian standards relating to safety barriers for swimming pools. If the gate is open, turning the key in the striker component of the gate latch may cause the gate to remain locked in the open position which will not prevent unsupervised access to the pool area.

There are quite a few installed in Esperance so please check to see if your gate latch is on the recall list. at www.commerce.wa.gov.au/announcements/recall-unsafe-pool-gate-latches-pos...
