Compression latch – now also in black

The standard DIRAK compression latch from FDB Panel Fittings is now also available in black to pair with black hinges and other enclosure hardware.

The black finish with white insert markings offers a particularly clear indication of the latch position.

This IP65/67 latch provides a full 6mm of compression to ensure good gasket pull down along with excellent vibration resistance to prevent nuisance opening. It is useful especially on vehicles and machine controls where vibration is problematic.

Square & Triangle inserts (8mm) are standard & 3mm & 5mm Double Bit inserts. The 1-078 set height version is supplemented by the 1-079 option with a threaded square shaft to accept an adjustable cam accessory which permits depth variation of from 17mm to 73mm without the use of tools.
