Southco's VISE ACTION® compression latches are designed for quick, secure closure in applications where vibration, sealing, and quality are paramount. This page is for the small size models, with adjustable grip. You can view the possible cams/pawls and their grip ranges in the table below. The latches resist accidental opening from shock or vibration and compresses 4mm (0.17") to provide IP-65 environmental sealing when properly gasketed. We offer 4 different head styles, 3 of which are tool actuated to restrict access and discourage vandalism. The fourth style has a knob for convenient access. The Southco Tubular style barrel key is one of our most popular options. Keys are not included with the latch, but can be found in the Accessories area below.

This latch is available in black powder-coating, silver powder-coating, chrome plated, and stainless steel. The black, silver, and chrome models are all made from zinc alloy and plated steel. The stainless version is metal injection molded marine-grade 316 stainless steel.
