Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 

Get the integrated look of a flush-mount latch, ease-of-use of a lift-and-turn latch, and waterproof sealing performance of a compression latch all in one! Southco's M1 compession latches are the most popular deck and hatch latches in the marine industry found on nearly every boat and yacht from smaller center consoles to large sportfish. It is also used on RVs and motorhomes, and works great for custom enclosures. The latch compresses when closed, and will provide IP-66/NEMA 4 watertight sealing. All of the components are corrosion resistant 316 stainless steel.

The M1 is offered in two different sizes, based off the size of the hole the latch installs in. The 2" latch fits a 2" hole and has a 2.41" face, while the 2.5" latch fits a 2.5" hole and has a 3" face. You will also need to select the door/panel thickness as well as the cam you would like from the options area above. The grip range table below shows the grip range that each cam provides. Included with each latch is a backing plate, screws, cam, flange gasket, and if applicable a pair of over-molded keys. For further information please see the technical specs tab, or the extended information tab for part numbers.

Southco M1 Compression Latch June 21, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Bellingham, WA United States  
We couldn't find the compression latches in the size we needed locally.  Found you on-line.  We are very pleased with the quick communication and delivery.

We will order again.  Thank you!

So far, so good. June 11, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from , LA United States  
Work much better than the perko latches, so far. Less leaking. Much sturdier.
