April 25, 2008, Newsletter Issue #88: Self-Closing Gates Should Open Outwardly

Tip of the Week

Always remember that a self-closing gate should open away from the swimming pool. When your swimming pool fence is being constructed, make sure that the self-closing gate to your swimming pool will swing outward and away from the pool at all times. A gate that opens inward presents a hazard because it could help to propel a child into the water upon entry.
