Southco 37 Latch

New Heavy-Duty Lever Assist Latch Provides Proven Reliability For Heavier Doors & Panels - Available Now at Zygology

Combining enough strength to ensure high clamping force with the flexibility to accommodate misalignment for heavier doors & panels, Southco’s 37 Lever Assist Latch is available now at Zygology. 

The Ideal Latch Solution For Heavier Doors & Panels

Featuring long handles to provide added leverage & generate high clamp loads (clamping forces up to 475N) with lower user effort, the new 37 Lever Assist Latch is the ideal solution for Zygology customers to ensure heavy panels are secure & more reliable than ever. 

Southco’s 37 Lever Assist Latch series features a flexible design & substantial handgrip area that allows the latch to easily engage in challenging field conditions, even with gloved hands. Constructed of corrosion resistant, flexible rubber, 37 latches absorb & reduce vibration & will remain closed even when the application flexes or moves.


Suitable For Indoor & Outdoor Use With Vibration Absorption To Increase Safety 

Southco’s 37 Draw Latch series offers proven reliability in harsh outdoor environments, providing a robust, flexible latching solution for a broad range of challenging industry applications including Automotive, Bus, Coach & Recreational Vehicles, Military & Speciality Vehicles, Construction, Farming & Agricultural Vehicles, plus heavy duty Industrial Machinery.

This flexible latch was designed with built-in detents, which helps prevent accidental opening due to shock & vibration.  Made of high density Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) rubber, the latch body stretches to absorb & reduce vibration, & also accommodates for misalignment.

Additionally EPDM is resistant to UV exposure, aging, weathering, & multiple chemicals therefore this latch is an extremely durable solution for outdoor use. It’s long-life will ensure you avoid additional spend on replacement latches.
