Product description


GN 516.5 stainless compression latches have a closing mechanism which transfers the rotary movement of the operating element (key) into a 90° turn and then into a 6 mm linear stroke.

This mechanism is designed for common applications such as making a tight and vibration-proof interlock in the end position (retaining position) in connection with an elastic element (door / casing seal).

9 latches with different closing mechanisms will cover latch spacings (retaining zones) of between 19 and 41 mm. If the measured retaining position lies between two latch spacings A, the next smaller value must be selected.

GN 516 compression latches are supplied with the catch lever enclosed loose.

For sheet metal punches for door locks/latches, see GN 123.
