May 9, 2008, Newsletter Issue #90: Keep Locks on Self-Closing Gates

Tip of the Week

Self-closing gates and other entryways to above-ground swimming pools should be kept locked at all times. If your fence is not quite high enough, or even if it is, consider adding a key or combination lock to the self-closing gate for added protection. The lock should be waterproof or covered to protect it from being damaged or rusting from constant contact with water. Do not tell your children where the key is hidden or what the combination it to ensure that they will not enter the swimming pool area unsupervised.
