Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access hardware solutions, has expanded its successful E3 VISE ACTION® Compression Latch series with a compact version designed for limited space applications. The compact E3 Compression Latch combines high strength with a smaller design footprint for secure, vibration resistant latching in even the most challenging operating environments.
