An adjustable compression latch is exactly the same as any standard compression latch. It however has the ability to adjust the grip or the distance from the cam to the body of the latch. This creates a very versatile latching solution. Not only can small or large distance be accommodated by one latch but the pull the latch exerts on the door can also be adjusted. This feature is great when there is a gasket around the door. For some applications, it maybe more advantageous to pull the door in tightly or loosely depending on the gasket being used. This can be done simply by adjusting the nuts that hold the cam into position. One latch alone can work for several application improving assembly time as well as allowing the customer to purchase latches in greater quantities.
