toggle latches

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.

Toggle latches from FDB Panel Fittings

For storage containers and quick closure of panels we have a range of toggle latches which includes the standard wire loop and plain designs as well as lockable, padlockable and spring loaded types. Spring compensated toggle latches are valuable as vibration resistant closure devices whereby the springs adjust for movement to maintain a constant closure force and resist spurious opening. Adjustable over centre catches permit a range of closure forces to be set as appropriate to the application. The range also includes soft and heavy duty latches.
