Latch Type
           
   Your choices are...         
   Cam Latch       Cam latches are flat components that attach to the back of a lock or lock cylinder. They rotate to block or restrict the movement of a component or door. Cam latches are often used as small locks on cabinets, tool boxes, etc. They are distinguished from other designs by an obvious swing-arm or cam on the back which turns with a key to lock the door or drawer. Locks can be short or long. Cams can be short or long, bent or straight, and may even be in the shape of a hook. 
   Compression Latch       Compression latches perform two functions. First, the latch swings into the latching position by user actuation. Next, the latch compresses the gasket and/or panel against the frame with additional user actuation.    
   Deadbolt Latch       Deadbolt latches have a lock bolt that extends into the door jam. Usually, they are usually activated by a key or turn knob. 
   Draw Latch / Tension Latch

Materials of Construction
   Materials       
   Your choices are...         
   Iron       Iron is a heavy, malleable, ductile, magnetic, silver-white metallic element. 
   Plastic       Latches are made of organic, synthetic, or processed materials that are mostly thermoplastic or thermosetting polymers of high molecular weight and that can be made into objects, films, or filaments. 
   Rubber       Rubber latches are made from either natural rubber or silicone rubber. Natural rubber includes compounds such as gum rubber (polyisoprene) and latex. Silicones are polymers in which organic groups such as methyl and phenyl groups are bonded to the silicone atoms in chains of inorganic siloxanes (-Si-O-Si-). Their properties include heat, cold and weather resistance, electrical insulation, release, water repellency and defoaming. 
   Stainless Steel       Stainless steel is chemical and corrosion resistant and can have relatively high pressure ratings. 
   Steel       Steel is a commercial iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent. It is malleable under suitable conditions, and is distinguished from cast iron by its malleability and lower carbon content. 
   Zinc       Zinc is a nonferrous metal that is often used in corrosion protection (galvanization) applications. Zinc is also used in architectural and automotive applications, as well as in batteries and toys. Zinc is available in a wide range of alloys. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialize, or proprietary materials. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
