Product Description

This latch "spans" the tongue & groove closure valance. This requires no extra cuts to the tongue & groove, or hybrid, extrusions. This simplifies the installation process and adds greater structural integrity. Top edge of recessed dish is offset to accommodate the tongue & groove, or hybrid, extrusions. The hook is spring-loaded to retract back flat against the dish when not fastened. Used in conjunction with our Hybrid Tongue & Groove Extrusions, and  silicone sealant in all of your case joints and fittings, this latch makes cases as water resistant as possible. SEE ALL DETAILS & GRAPHICS BELOW

Rivets Required For Installation: 10

Hook Length: Approx 2.61" (66.3mm) from the offset

Catch Plate for hook included

Six of the rivets require backing washers, or a backplate, as those rivets will install through bare wood internally. The top two rivets install through the aluminum tongue & groove, or hybrid, extrusions and therefore require no backing washers.

THIS ITEM REQUIRES A HOLE CUTOUT IN THE CASE WALL FOR INSTALLATION.

TIP FOR PROPER INSTALLATION SPACING BETWEEN LATCH HOOK AND CATCH PLATE KEEPER:  

The best way to gauge proper fit is as follows:

1. Make your cutout for the recessed latch dish in your case body. Be sure your cutout is positioned properly so that the "throw" of the latch hook falls into an area of the lid that will properly accommodate the catch plate.
2. Have your hybrid tongue & groove in place (doesn't have to be mounted yet with rivets - can tape in place) and place your lid onto the body with both of their hybrid tongue & groove in place as if the lid is closed (again, no rivets required - taping in place to hold still is fine).
3. Make sure that your butterfly twist latch portion is in the fully open position (allowing for the hook to be at its farthest reach when you engage it)
4. Hold the catch plate keeper in place with one hand on the lid side of the closure to where you would approximate it might go.
5. With your other hand flip the hook until it reaches over to the catch plate keeper area.
6. Position the catch plate keeper so that the curved part of the hook is about an 1/8' beyond the edge where it will grip the catch plate keeper and hold firmly in place.
7. Allow the hook to retract back to the dish still holding the catch plate keeper in place.
8. Mark your holes for the catch plate keeper with a sharpie - then you are ready to drill your holes and mount you catch plate keeper.

  1. Best Lid Closure!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2009

    This latch is the best for creating a strong seamless lid closure. It doesn't require that you cut up your tongue and groove extrusion when you install it. It sits right on your extrusions with its offset and the hook on the latch "jumps" across the tongue and groove and locks into the strike on the other side. Saves time and great features!!
