HoldTight Magnet Closure Installation Kit


The add-on HoldTight Magnet Closure Kit provides a way to hold the Safety Gate securely in a closed position.  All parts of the kit have been designed and tested for outdoor use and exposure.  In fact, it has successfully held the Intrepid Safety Gate closed on an offshore rig along the Canadian-Atlantic coastline where the winds are around 30 knots with gusts of 70-80 knots!



Determine where the Safety Gate contacts the vertical guardrail post.       Mark and drill a 1/4” hole through the top bar of Safety Gate. Since the bar has both recessed and solid areas along its length, use the shorter machine screw for the recessed areas and the longer machine screw for the solid sections.

Two nuts are used to secure the magnetic disk.       In this way, the magnet can “float” or “wobble”, and still make good, flat contact with the metal guardrail post.

Once the screw, nuts, and magnet are together, use the washer, (plus additional nuts, if required) and the cap nut to secure the unit to the gate.
