New Heavy-Duty Draw Latch Accommodates Heavier Doors and Panels

Southco has expanded its successful line of draw latches with the addition of a heavy-duty 37 Lever Assist Latch. Designed to accommodate misalignment of heavier doors and panels, the newest 37 Lever Assist Latch provides tight latch grip and additional clamping force in challenging operating conditions.

Southco’s 37 Lever Assist Latch series features a flexible design and substantial handgrip area that allows the latch to easily engage in challenging field conditions, even with gloved hands.

Constructed of corrosion resistant, flexible rubber, 37 latches absorb and reduce vibration and will remain closed even when the application flexes or moves.

The Flexible Draw Latch series allows heavy panels to be latched securely, even when there are large variations in alignment and tolerance. With its rubber body construction, the 37 Draw Latch series eliminates vibration and noise, and prevents common paint or finish damage that may be caused by metal-on-metal contact.
