Steel latch for the sea

A new flush-pull latch from Southco, Concordville, Pa., is based on a proven marine design and has exceeded 500 hr of corrosion testing with no signs of rust or oxidation. The stainless-steel latch, targeted for marine applications, withstands high loads without rattling and is ergonomically designed for easy operation. The latch can be slammed shut and actuated from inside or outside. It is available in key-lockable and nonlocking versions.
