This Southco E3 compression latch is made of die-cast zinc! It's a durable material that is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications.
With a simple turn of the key, this latch locks a compartment door, then compresses it up to 4mm. That may not seem like a lot, but it'll make just about any gasketed door almost waterproof, and will prevent rattling and vibration. This is a good thing if you want to secure a utility box on a trailer or RV (or a number of other possibilities).
Available in a black powder-coated finish! Fully adjustable pawl for a range of panel and door thicknesses, too!
Requires E3-5-15 Key to operate (not included).
