Fastners and Adhesives: Compression Latch

To obtain a 12-mm compression range, the 1-081SL compression latch uses D-Snap Technology and Design Symmetry for simple installation without hardware or tools. The latch’s components are preassembled into sandwich-type panels for easy installation from the front of the panel. Standard cam heights are 22 and 28 mm and, depending on cam length, compression range can be modified. The use of a planetary gear for actuation gives compression at extremely low torque, and a roller at the end of the cam minimizes scrape damage to panels and reduces the required closing force.

With Design Symmetry, the cam’s 180° rotation lets the same latch install on right or left-hand doors. Latches can be actuated with a variety of inserts.

D-Snap Technology permits blind and toolless assembly without screws or nuts; withstands vibration; and eliminates the risk of loose screws or nuts damaging interior equipment.
