Thread: Above Ground Pool Ladder Lock

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Above Ground Pool Ladder Lock

    We just installed a Splash Superpool (bag-type pool) which requires a special ladder due to the taper of the membrane. The ladder does not have a latching/locking mechanism and state code requires one . Does anyone out there know where I can buy an after-market/universal locking mechanism that I can install on my ladder? I know a small lock with a chain accomplishes the same thing, but the state building code states "latching/locking" so I feel that it is requiring a combination unit (at any rate, having what the code calls for word for word will help me keep the building inspector in check). I'd need a unit that will latch when the ladder is swung into place, and then either locks automatically or has an integral mechanism to be locked with a padlock. I can't call the local building inspector because he's operating under the 6th edition of the building code (which did not allow this option), and the 7th edition is currently in effect (which does allow this option).

    If you know of a manufacturer for something that'll fit this requirement, OR you were able to create something like this yourself, I'd appreciate whatever information you can give me.

    Thanks

    That'll be great for the gate when we put up a deck, but I'm looking for something to fit on an A-Frame ladder with swing-up steps.

    Thanks

    I would think you could retro fit your swing up ladder with the unit he has the link to. We had a swing up ladder with the lock setup before we put the deck in and I'm telling you it really isn't that much different than what is shown there. Some of them are actually kind of cheesy and not hard to break - that unit would be better than many of the factory installed setups. JMHO

    Re: Above Ground Pool Ladder Lock

    my thought as well...that latch mechanism seemed sturdy, but figured a pic would help

    It's a little dark outside right now. I'll submit a pic tomorrow.

    Thanks to all.
