What is the problem?

The magnet contained in the striker portion of the latch assembly can come loose, preventing the latch from securing a gate.

How can I tell if I own this product?

The 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.

Information on where these items sold new+: The product was sold nationwide from February to October of 2013 to professional fence contractors, dealers and gate manufacturers for between $50 to $60.
