Versatile Compression Latches

What are compression latches?

Compression latches, or draw latches, use mechanical compression to secure the door they're installed on when locked. 

Ovesco stocks a wide range of easy-to-use compression latch designs, allowing you to find an ideal locking solution that suits your needs. Ideal for securing doors and hatches on boats and heavy machinery, trucks and utes, our draw latches can be twisted, pressed or depressed into a locked position.

They can also provide higher levels of environmental protection due to their powerful seals, preventing debris from entering an application area through gaps around the enclosure or door perimeter.

What are compression latches?

Compression latches are mechanical fastening devices designed to securely hold doors, panels, or access covers closed by exerting pressure or compression against a gasket or seal. They typically consist of a latch mechanism and a handle that, when engaged, compresses the door or panel against the frame to create a tight seal.
