Swell-Action Rubber Collar Latch, Plastic, Southco, 19 Series

SKU: 19-51-01


Quick and easy access, with convenient single-hole mounting, plus latch and handle in one assembly, are just the start of this latch family's benefits. Its swell-action rubber collar is forgiving of misalignment and provides compressive pull-up to dampen vibration and minimize rattles.

Swell Latches provide their latching force by compressing a rubber grommet (causing it to swell up), which causes its diameter to change. To unlatch, just release the compression on the grommet!

Installation of this latch requires two "reasonably precise" holes to be drilled: one in the door, one in the panel. Attach all the parts as shown, and that's it! You've got a weather-resistant latch that requires no further adjustment.
