Toggle latches, over centre catches, wire toggles, spring catches and so on are a common quick action method of closure for packing of equipment or temporary fitting of masks and jigs. A market leader in enclosure hardware, EMKA UK, has a comprehensive range of toggle and hook latches available.
The range from EMKA is aimed at specialist OEMs, installers, manufacturers and assemblers who are already familiar with their range of locks, hinges, swinghandles and gasket profiles.
The EMKA Program 6,000 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.
EMKA Program 6,000 series toggle latches may be installed with in-line or right angled hook/catch plates to suit the orientation of the housing.
