Pool safety is a paramount concern, especially during the summer months. Recent studies have shown that an isolation fence with a self-closing gate or a self-latching pool gate could prevent up to 90% of toddler drownings. One standout solution in this space is Waterson’s self-closing heavy-duty gate hinges, known for their impeccable quality, durability, and easy-to-adjust features.

Guidance on Installing and Adjusting Self-Closing Pool Gate Hinges

Waterson gate closer hinges are as simple as a standard gate hinges installation. Just measure the opening, mark the spots with a pencil, drill the holes, and screw them onto the gates or posts.

Special Feature – Negative Swing Setup Ensures Closing

Negative degree swing is important to ensure effective latching, especially in daycare centers, schools, and commercial swimming pools where safety is essential.  The Waterson

spring-loaded gate hinge closing degree can easily be adjusted by the installed set screw between a functional range of -4d – 0d, which guarantees snap closing, security, and peace of mind.



How Many Self-closing Hinges Do You Install on The Pool Gate?

Typically, a gate requires two self-closing hinges for effective operation. However, for larger and heavier gates, three hinges may be necessary to provide extra support and maintain proper function. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your specific gate and hinge model. For Waterson self-closing pool gate hinges, the standard recommendation is to install two hinges for doors or gates up to 60″ high and three hinges for doors or gates between 60″and 90″ high. The number can vary based on the weight and size of the door or gate.
