Rotary latch features debris resistant design and concealed latching

Southco has expanded its R4 Rotary Latch series with a new debris-resistant version said to offer enhanced performance for medium-duty applications. Southco’s R4-75 Rotary Latch with Debris Resistant Design offers an integrated mounting bracket that simplifies installation and features a concealed rotary mechanism providing protection from dirt and debris, for improved durability in applications where remote actuation is required.

The latch is compact for applications that require concealed mounting and remote actuation of a door or panel. An in-line trigger and external rotor feature are said to provide robust latching for interior or exterior enclosures and compartments, making it suitable for off-highway, truck and bus & coach applications.

Two-stage engagement protects against false latching, providing secure and positive latching at low closing forces with push-to-close convenience.
