New Dirak toggle latches available from FDB Panel Fittings

These new DIRAK toggle latches offer the novel feature of a slider lock mechanism to prevent accidental opening or nuisance opening caused by excessive vibration. They are typically of value on specialist vehicles for compartment closure or on transit cases where the padlockable variant would also be particularly useful.

These spring wire loop catches with hook plates are in tough AISI 304 stainless steel with slider locks in either stainless or Red ABS for greater visibility.

See our online store or contact us for more about our range of toggle latches.
