Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access solutions, has expanded its line of rotary latches with a new version that can be triggered by hand via an integrated plastic knob, eliminating the need for a separate cable and actuator. The hand actuated R4-20 Rotary Latch features steel construction, providing a robust, long-lasting solution for demanding applications such as hidden access panels and doors on transportation and industrial equipment.
Southco’s hand actuated R4-20 Rotary Latch features a compact, space-saving design that facilitates inside door mounting and is available in through-hole, metric and imperial mounting styles. This versatile R4-20 Rotary Latch is available with single or two-stage latching, ensuring secure latching at low closing forces. Southco’s R4-20 series offers superior latch to striker mating tolerances, making it suitable for flexible panel applications with inherent misalignment concerns.
According to Global Product Manager Cynthia Bart, “The hand actuated R4-20 offers a simplified rotary system solution by eliminating the need for a separate actuator and cable. High strength construction and a two stage latching option provide added safety and security for a variety of heavy duty applications.”
