Original Press Release:
Stainless Steel Draw Latch Designed for Style, Security, and Performance in Marine and Outdoor Environment
Concordville, PA, May 24, 2007-The new Southco® v7 stainless steel draw latch is designed to deliver smooth, quiet, and durable performance in marine environments and other exterior applications. The sleek aesthetic design, combined with corrosion-resistant 316 SS construction, makes it an attractive option for exterior storage compartments on upscale boats or recreational vehicles, and other highly-visible enclosures exposed to the elements. An optional integrated lock plug offers keylocking security, while a smoothly contoured high-strength handle enhances tamper-resistant protection.
While this latch's design and construction are robust enough to meet the demands of industrial use, its contoured low-profile styling eliminates sharp edges and provides a clean look that is attractive enough for use in consumer applications. Additionally, the cupped handle and catch enclose the latch's mounting hardware, keeper, and working mechanism for enhanced protection against vandalism or forced entry. The lever-action mechanism provides secure latching with quick access. An over-center latching mechanism ensures positive engagement and prevents accidental opening due to stress or vibration.
Keylocking protection is both flexible and secure. The integrated lock plug design maintains the smooth exterior look of the latch. Precision molding technology permits the creation of precise lock plug designs molded from corrosion-resistant stainless steel.
