FDB Insert key latches for specialist cabinets and enclosures

Many types are available, such as the double-bit, female square, male square, hexagonal, triangular, Daimler Benz, Crown type and Crescent Czech. These keys are produced in hard wearing zinc-die or black polyamide and may be provided with customer logo for batch quantities.

The elegant design, with long escutcheon format where required, allows unusual cut-outs to be aesthetically concealed with a superior appearance.
