Since it’s launch almost 25 years ago, the MagnaLatch Vertical Pull has become the MagnaLatch of choice for keeping pets safe – whether it’s to prevent your pets getting into a pool area, or out onto the road.

The Vertical Pull’s compact design is ideal for pet security gates, garden and household gates. And now the new MagnaLatch Series 3 is even better.

For your convenience, the lock can now be rekeyed to match your other locks, such as a front door. A new visible Lock Indicator shows you at a glance whether it’s locked or unlocked. And the innovative magnetic action shuts every time and stays shut.

Easy to install and adjust for gate sag and ground shift, the new MagnaLatch Vertical Pull Series 3 comes with a Lifetime Warranty and is available from good hardware stores.
