An expanded line of Southco E5 industrial series cam latches offers improved user interface and key locking versatility. The E5 latch format, with interchangeable cams for grip dimensions from 4 to 42 mm (0.16 to 1.65 in), provides basic latching needs, while the L- and T-handle designs offer ergonomic handholds and single-hole installation. A hooked cam is also available. The flush wing knob latch holds the actuator beneath the surface level of the door panel, and built-in threaded studs allow the housing to mount from the back of door panels up to 3.2 mm (0.12 in) thick. All handles provide locking choices and feature overmolded keys as well as available adapters to improve security and reduce rattle with larger door spans.
