Swing-Handle Latch

H3 Swing-Handle multipoint latches accommodate numerous size, configuration, and security options.

The handle stores in the latch body and pops up for use. The housing, handle, and cover all are of glass-filled nylon for low weight, high strength, and corrosion resistance. The latches fit door-panel thicknesses from 1.5 mm (0.06 in.) to 3.2 mm (0.125 in.). Optional ramp cams help doors stay snug to minimize rattles.

Cams handle grip dimensions from 4.5 mm (0.18 in.) to 42.5 mm (1.67 in.). A built-in lock cylinder accepts a standard PK lockplug, tool-access drivers, or DIN profile locks as required by some European standards. Locks can have single, multiple, or custom key codes.

Southco, 210 N. Brinton Lake Rd., Concordville, PA 19331, (610) 459-4000,
