Push-to-Close Latches


Southco has developed a series of modular, push-to-close latches that offer easy and intuitive closing in both single-point and two-point latching installations. These new latches provide an ideal solution for a variety of applications including kiosks, HVAC and industrial machinery access panels. Southco’s E5 Push-to-Close Cam Latch delivers one-touch closing convenience by incorporating a spring-loaded ramped cam. Upon closing a door or panel the cam retracts, allowing the door to close, followed by the spring return of the cam which secures the door. The E5 also features a locked/unlocked status indicator to provide users with quick visual status confirmation.
