Pool Safety & Compliance

D&D Technologies is the designer and manufacturer of the MagnaLatch® magnetically triggered gate latch and TruClose® self-closing, polymer safety gate hinges.

We are committed to preventing toddler drownings worldwide and we work closely with, and contribute to, water safety organizations globally. D&D is the founder and continuing support of the non-profit organization, the National Drowning Prevention Alliance (www.NDPA.org), which is dedicated to drowning prevention.  The MagnaLatch gate latch and TruClose gate hinge meet international pool safety codes.  The MagnaLatch features dual electronic warnings: bright, flashing LED lights and an audible alarm that sound if a gate is opened or left unlatched. This provides the ability to see at glance and hear from a distance if your gate is not fully secured.  MagnaLatch is the #1 child safety gate latch in the world.
