Available in a variety of sizes, materials, and configurations, our selection of cam and slam latches can be used to securely hold closed doors, cabinets, access panels, electrical enclosures, HVAC units, and other protected areas. Cam latches are commonly referred to as quarter-turn latches because they use a key, handle, or knob to turn the pawl 90 degrees to catch on the frame panel. Compression latches are similar to cam latches in that they latch in a quarter turn; however, an additional quarter turn draws the pawl into the frame, compressing gaskets between the door and frame to create a seal that helps prevent dust or water from entering the enclosure. Slam latches, also known as push-to-close latches, provide a hands-free method of closing a door or panel. Our range includes latches that meet IP and NEMA standards, as well as locking, non-locking, and padlockable options.

Slam & Push Latches
Slam latches, also known as push-to-close latches, provide a hands-free method of closing a door or panel. The sprung cam lifts and returns when the door is closed. As the panel door is pushed to, the cam rises and then springs down behind the panel wall.Push Button Latches have a push button opening and a slam shut action. They are single hole installation for added ease and suit various panel thicknesses.
