Nationwide Industries Trident Pool Gate Latches Recall Recalled

Date:
January 22, 2014
Category:
Health & Safety
Company/Brand:
Nationwide Industries, Inc
The Danger:
The magnet contained in the striker portion of the latch assembly can come loose, preventing the latch from securing a gate. No injuries were reported.
Description:
About 2,500 recalled magnetic gate latches are 10" or 20" models in black or white. They are marked with the "Trident" name and image on the face of the latch body below the key hole. The latch body, which is typically attached to a fence post, contains a knob and a key cylinder on the uppermost portion and a recessed area on the bottom portion designed to engage and retain the striker. The striker, which contains the magnet, is typically attached to the active gate portion of a fence gate assembly, and moves with the gate as it is opened and closed. The Trident Latches are frequently used to secure gates for pools.
Sold At:
The product was sold nationwide from February to October of 2013 to professional fence contractors, dealers and gate manufacturers for between $50 to $60.
What To Do:
Contact Nationwide Industries for a replacement striker kit that can be installed with a Phillips head screwdriver. Customers can contact the company toll-free at (800) 409-3901, via e-mail at Striker@NationwideIndustries.com, or online at www.nationwideindustries.com and click on "Info on Trident Striker replacements" for more information.
