Over Centre Catches for Vehicle and Industrial Use

Adjustable hard wearing over centre catches

Over centre catches are high-strength, easy-to-use latches designed to quickly secure doors, hatches, lids and even canopies. To close, these catches must be clamped shut. The tension they generate creates a tight seal  tight enough for reliable protection against dust and other environmental grit. 

The key benefits of ovesco’s over-centre catches are their simplicity, reliability and versatility. They can be easily installed onto a variety of components, as their low profile makes them extremely adaptable. We offer both adjustable and non-adjustable designs with either stainless steel or zinc-plated finishes for added corrosion resistance.
