Quick Lid™ Extrusion - This custom extrusion is part of the Quick Lid™ System used to create removable lid panels instead of creating a full-blown lid. Available for 3/8" case walls only. If you want to use it with 1/2" case walls, you would have to route down the panel edges to 3/8" in order for the panels to fit into the extrusion channels. Used in conjunction with our L2470 finger-operated Quick Lid™ Latch, our C0675/30 Quick Lid™ Corner, and our P2472 Quick Lid™ Hook Plate. Contact us if you have any questions about implementing this system and its components. See How It Works Below.
NOTE: Mill finish unanodized extrusions can commonly incur surface abrasions during shipment from rubbing together if they incur harsh handling during the shipment process. This is not abnormal, and is easy to remedy by rubbing the extrusions with some #0000 Fine Grade Steel Wool, cheaply available at any hardware store.

HOW IT WORKS
#1 - The front, back, or top panel of the case is an inset removable panel held in place by a custom extrusion, custom two-leg corners, specially designed hook plates, and a spring-loaded internal latch. Multiple latches may be used for larger panels.
#2 - Stick your finger into the access hole for the internal latch and push down on the internal spring-loaded latch mechanism to release the panel from the custom extrusion framework.
#3 - Pull the removable panel from the custom extrusion framework.
#4 - As you detach the removable panel, you can see the two hook plates with their offset flanges that grab the lip of the custom extrusion. Together with the internal spring-loaded latch(es) these hook plates act to firmly secure the panel to the extrusion framework. The latch can be installed with wood screws for a "clean" exterior look, or with rivets just as you would install any other part (and since this latch is internal, just make sure the rivet is installed so that the rivet head is on the EXTERIOR of the case!)
#5 - Here is a reverse view of the two hook plates and their offset flanges that grab the lip of the custom extrusion.
