Aluminum Double Pool Gate

I installed my first fence around my pool. Due to the size of walk to the pool I went with a double gate to get full use of the walkway. Normally, we will only use one side so I need to come up with a way to keep other gate from moving. I was thinking about using a cane bolt but am not sure if that will pass code? Does anybody have any ideas or will my cane bolt idea be good enough?

I am no expert but I would expect that the cane bolt cannot be operated/opened any less than 54" above grade. I'm thinking this would be easiest by running the cane bolt inside the gate's tubing frame. You could also install a separate tube around the cane bolt so it can't be touched until at least 54" above grade. A way around this would be to lock the cane bolt in position with a lock requiring a key.
