Latches & Locks

Latches are used to hold doors, gates and access panels in place. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. At their core, latches hold a door closed, but they may also be used to secure a cabinet, compress a gasket to create a watertight seal, allow a door to be closed hands free, withstand an explosion, keep a cover from flying open or provide a place for a padlock.

Many latches also have a locking feature, whether they are keyed, use a tubular key, have a push button lock, rings for a padlock or a security catch.

Lever Latches are flush handles that use a lever action to compress the door to the frame. Readily adjusted, this style of latch is extremely tolerant to a range of door and frame thicknesses. Locking and non-locking trigger types both use a button to trigger a release of the handle.

Swell Latches are easy to install latches that use the compression of a rubber bushing to hold a door against a frame panel with a single hole. This style of latch can accommodate a large variety of panel thicknesses and misaligned panels.

Turn Handle Latches are available in your choice of L-handles or T-handles to provide a good grip for turning and pulling. Both types are available in locking or non-locking styles.

Variable Twist Latches use a knob to turn a spring pawl that engages the frame panel to hold the door closed. They accommodate a range of panel thicknesses and are designed to be installed with either rivets or screws.
