Spring Latch Series Self-Adjusting Compression Latches 57
Southco’s 56 Spring-Loaded Plungers provide convenient installation and removal of components. Activated with a simple “pull,” these plungers offer simplified positioning of sliding component and quick-release for easy removal. The 56 series provides design flexibility for limited space applications, and can be used as a locator pin in sliding applications or quick-release hinge pin for removable doors or drawers.
Ramped spring-quality pawl provides increasing level of compression as latch is rotated and enhances tension on latch in closed position
Serrated spring models provide greater friction for more vibration-resistant grip
User controls the amount of compression force
Spring steel cam design is more tolerant of rough handling as experienced with lift-off panels
A wide range of latch sizes and actuation styles complement the versatile performance of this self-adjusting spring cam design. They satisfy a broad spectrum of applications where specific compression forces are not critical.
