Vise Action® Compression Latch
Designed for quick, secure closure in applications where vibration, sealing, and quality are paramount. The original Southco VISE ACTION® latching mechanism combines with numerous body and head styles designed to suit specific installation and application requirements. The smooth operation of the Vise Action® design aligns the pawl behind the frame and draws it up-tight with a single continuous half-turn motion. It’s compression action provides consistent pull-up for environmental applications, and helps reduce or eliminate noise and rattles caused by vibration. Over-center latching resists accidental opening due to shock or vibration.
