What is a Draw Latch?
Featured Product from bisco industries
Draw Latch Description
Draw latches operate on the principle of drawing two items together using tension. The main components of a draw latch assembly are the blade (a hooked plate or a wire formed loop), the keeper (a hooked plate that receives the blade), and the hinge. The tension is created when the blade is hooked to the keeper and clamped down. For typical draw latches the tension is released when the latch is rotated to a vertical positon and is applied when the latch is rotated to a horizontal position.
Draw Latch Styles
Despite shared functionality, draw latches come in many different styles.
