The A3 push-to-close slide latch from Southco (Concordville, PA) features a molded thermoplastic body and flexible locking options for secure latching of sheet metal and thin thermoplastic panels. It features an integrated lockplug housing, eliminating the need for a separate key cam lock. Both locking and non-locking versions snap into position in identical-size rectangular installation holes. Panel thicknesses may range from 0.031 to 0.062" and a molded-in spring-tab holds each latch in place. It is made of black ABS with a glass-reinforced nylon lockplug and stainless steel spring.
