Over-centre latches can be padlocked for added security

Protex Fasteners is launching the medium-duty 75 series over-centre latches that are characterised by ease-of-use, versatility and security.

Over-centre latches can be padlocked for added security

Incorporating a raised tail profile that ensures simple and effective operation - even at low temperatures by users wearing thick protective gloves - the 75 series latches offer up to 10mm of grip range adjustment to suit guarding, enclosure, machine building and process equipment applications across a wide spectrum of operating temperatures and environments.

The new units feature a compact base design for easy location and mounting on assembly components, as well as a novel, spring-loaded rocker safety catch that engages automatically on closing and can be padlocked to provide additional security.

Available in stainless steel and zinc-plated mild steel, with ultimate tensile strength figures of 750kgf and 650kgf, respectively, the Protex 75 series latches are currently offered with a hook claw (part number 75-2753) or solid strap (part number 75-2573) for use with a range of catchplates.

Full details of the new fasteners - including AutoCAD-compatible 2D drawings or 3D CAD models in SolidWorks, STEP, IGES and E-drawing formats - can be downloaded from the company's recently updated website. Furthermore, the secure site provides users with fast, efficient and secure on-line order processing.
