Latches range in complexity from flexible one-piece flat springs of metal or plastic, such as are used to keep blow molded plastic power tool cases closed, to multi-point cammed latches used to keep large doors closed.
A latch is a type of mechanical fastener that is used to join two or more surfaces together while allowing for the regular or eventual separation of the objects or surfaces. A latch typically engages another piece of hardware on the other mounting surface. Depending upon the type and design of the latch, this engaged bit of hardware may be known as a keeper or strike. Note that a latch is not the same as the locking mechanism of a door or window, although often they are found together in the same product.
Our latches are made from stainless steel, steel, and zinc. Our flexible hold-downs are made from rubber that is impervious to weather, oils, and chemicals. Our latches are available in many different finishes including: Zinc Plated, 316 Stainless Steel, Raw Finish, and Black Powder Coat.
