High-Quality Over-Centre Latches 

An over-centre latch is commonly installed in-plane. This application of a pull handle is attached to the centre point of this type of latch, allowing it to be opened while still keeping its internal components secure. But how do they improve your design? Essentially, they feature secure co-planar latching, shock resistance, and a clean surface appearance. 

Key Locking Over Centre Draw Latches 

Our key locking options guarantee that, when installed, your latch remains secure throughout your product or machine's lifecycle, especially as they come with the optional custom keys supplied with purchase.
The key locking feature is a popular choice as it not only provides enhanced security to any objects or areas that need co-planar latching, but it also enhances the durability of the connection points. The durable construction of these draw latches increases the shock resistance of these weaker connection areas and significantly decreases the chance that they will become dislodged when exposed to sudden or intense impact force. 

Varied Choice of Specification

We stock a varied selection of these latches with a choice of materials, finishes, and designs so that we can ensure you're getting not just a durable latch but also one that fits the aesthetics of the environment around it. 
For example, we stock the draw latch model 1262 in zinc die for a wider and more secure option that secures the key entry below a cover. Alternatively, we also provide draw latch model 1271 in both zinc die, SS304 rivets and stainless steel 316. This alternate choice is an excellent option for areas that need quick, efficient access due to the raised latch arm design. The choice of materials also makes this an excellent choice for either indoor or outdoor environments, where the stainless steel will protect this latch from the weather or harsh chemicals. 

Suitable for Varied Applications

Over-centre latches are versatile options, offering excellent functionality across a wide range of purposes. For stationary applications, they are installed to secure cabinets and panels and, with their extra security, are often used to create secure access to hazardous materials or systems. Moving applications will use these latches as an efficient method of self-closing and eliminate the risk that a panel will become loose and swing open when in motion.
