Latching on to toggle and hook

Toggle latches, over-centre catches, wire toggles, spring catches etc are a common quick action method.

They are typically used for closure when dealing with the packing of equipment or temporary fitting of masks/jigs etc.

One foremost exponent in enclosure hardware, EMKA UK, has a comprehensive range for specialist OEMs, installers, manufacturers and assemblers who are already familiar with its range of locks, hinges, swinghandles and gasket profiles.

The EMKA Program 6000 covers both zinc-plated, steel and stainless steel in wire loop, rigid wire and solid link designs.

Spring-loaded latches are especially vibration compliant, enabling a conforming tension where abnormal movement is encountered, such as in transit, while others are adjustable or have special locking mechanisms.

6000 series toggle latches may be installed with in-line or right-angled hook/catch plates to suit the orientation of the housing.
