Industrial-Grade Push-To-Close Latch Provides Convenient Operation, Lockable Security
Concordville, PA, July 29, 2005 Southco announces a new push-to-close slide-bolt latch as the latest addition to a growing selection of Southco industrial-grade latches. This slide-bolt design, available with an optional keylocking feature for added security, provides secure latching with the convenience of being able to slam the latch closed even if the lock is engaged. Each lockable latch is shipped with two keys, and can be ordered in one of 500 keycode options.
The all-metal construction is available in a choice of steel or stainless steel bodies, each with a maximum working load of 555 N (125 pounds). A wide, thick, steel paddle-style actuator handle provides a solid and convenient grip for gloved hands in construction, off-highway, and industrial applications. A riveted slide bracket delivers consistent performance and permits installation of an internal release handle inside the enclosure.
A recessed cup that holds the wide handle and optional lock mechanism provides for virtually flush-profile installation. Attachment options include welded, riveted, or bolted mounting. All latch models install conveniently in a single rectangular hole, with minimal preparation time or effort.
