A slam latch is designed to secure a door or a lid by pushing it closed or slamming it without damaging the latch. Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products have several kinds of slam latches available including the plastic push button slam latch, better known as our 2-11BK and 2-13BK series latches.
SPEP’s plastic push button slam latches are easy to use; simply pushing the button will open the latch. When the button is pushed, a spring loaded bolt retracts. The latches are made of glass-reinforced nylon, a material that provides strength and rigidity to any product while minimizing the possibility of warpage. These slam latches are designed to be resistant to corrosion. In addition, the improved water resistant design of these latches prevents water and dust from entering.
SPEP push button slam latches come with key-locking or non-locking mechanisms. All are supplied with Strike and optional Finger Pull. These latches can be used in both interior and exterior applications; perfect for glove boxes in go carts, marine use, and other applications requiring durability, corrosion resistance, and sealing.
