A QUICK GUIDE TO SAFE ACCESS.

Correct and safe use of a HIDE lid hinges on the Safety Key.

Get a few basics down and you'll be good to go!

Hold the raised edge of the HIDE lid firmly in one hand. Release the Safety Key and set aside.

RESPECT THE KEY

Wielding the HIDE Safety Key is a powerful thing :)

The HIDE Safety Key is designed to open and close the lid, protect children from accessing the recess, and ensures 100% pool safety (when used correctly with a HIDE Skimmer Cover).

But there is one thing the Safety Key shouldn’t do, and that’s carry the full weight of the HIDE lid.

The power is in your hands – engage those muscles to carry the lid, not the key.

REPLACE A SAFETY KEY

CHILD SAFE TIPS!

Because HIDE skimmer pool safety hinges on the Safety Key, be sure to use your smarts when opening and closing the lid.

KEEP THEM SEPARATED

NEVER leave the HIDE Safety Key in the lid for any reason. The key is not specified or designed to remain in the lid. If left in the lid it creates an unsafe environment for children.

STORE SAFETY KEY SECURELY

ALWAYS store the HIDE Safety Key out of reach of children, in a secure, childproof location. Return to safe storage after use.

SAFE ACCESS

DO NOT leave nearby children unattended while the HIDE lid is removed. Actively discourage children from playing in or near the HIDE access area.

BAN LITTLE FINGERS

NEVER allow children to operate the HIDE Safety Key or the lid itself. This is a job for adults!
