Original Press Release:
New & Improved Swell Latch - Patent Pending
Innovative Components, Inc. announces the introduction of a unique quick release swell latch designed for use on access panels such as furnace filters and automotive storage compartments, or any application requiring a fast, easy, blind fastener. The latch is attached to the outer panel via a rubber gasket and an acorn nut screwed onto the die cast zinc threaded actuator shaft. The shaft assembly passes through a hole on the mating panel. When the latch is actuated, the rubber gasket is compressed and swells outward to capture the mating panel. The result is a secure and vibration resistant connection. A simple flip of the latch releases the outer panel. Unlike other swell latches that have uni-directional flippers that are pinned in place, Innovative's design is insert molded to be both fully reversible and extra durable. The latch accepts panel thicknesses from 0.XXX" to 0.XXX" . The standard color is black, but custom colors are offered. Innovative Components, Inc. is a manufacturer of plastic knobs, quick release pins, and wire rope lanyards.
