My pool is being remodeled, and I want to remove part of the fence around our pool to make the pool area bigger. The only problem is that that will leave the sliding glass door from my master bedroom directly accessible to the swimming pool. I plan on putting a sliding glass door alarm that is required by code. However, the problem is that at night, we often crack the door about 3 inches open to let the cool air in while the whole house fan is running. At night, we put a stick so that the door cannot be any bigger. This is fine when there are no children in the house. Now that my wife is pregnant with our first child, this is going to be unacceptable unless we can figure out another solution. I was wondering if anyone has a safety latch that will allow the sliding glass door to open 3-4" and then latch it in that position so the window cannot be open any larger without an adult bypassing the latch. Does anyone have any suggestion on what product(s) I can use for this purpose?
BTW - I found the following post useful for pool alarm:
