Securing Your Assets with Cam and Compression Latching – Choosing the Right Head Style

Choosing the right head style for a cam or compression latch will enhance end-user functionality and ensure the security of an enclosure. Southco’s wide range of cam and compression head styles provide many levels of security to accommodate the specific needs of an enclosure application.

A Slot Recessed head style for instance, supplies a base level of security and is suitable for applications where a simple access solution is necessary. A Hex Recess head however, adds an extra layer of protection due to its unique shape, which requires a special key for access.

Higher security applications benefit from Southco’s Tubular Key head design, which uses a wafer lock that can only be accessed using a Southco manufactured Tubular Key. Southco also offers standard head styles for specific industries, such as Rail and Bellcore. Using multiple cam and compression latches with different head styles is ideal for applications where additional levels of security are needed. For example, when accessing an enclosure within an enclosure. The external door of the enclosure can be easily secured using a Slot or Hex Recessed compression latch, while an additional layer of security can be added to the internal door using Southco’s Tubular Key head style option. Adding a compression latch with a different head style to each door ensures that only authorized individuals possessing the correct keys can access what’s inside.
