Lift and turn latches do exactly what they sound like they do. In order to turn the latch and disengage the cam from the keeper the latch handle must be lifted and then twisted. This is an excellent design for any application where accidental opening must be avoided. In these cases an obvious solution is to use a latch with a locking mechanism, but this can be cumbersome and keys get lost. For this reason lift and turn latches have seen use in metal working, food preparation and machinery applications just to name a few.
For many applications, appearance is just as important as material quality and this is why we at Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products have created a latch that looks excellent in any size and has options for both finish and material. These latches can be made from die cast zinc or stainless steel. The stainless steel latches come with a passivated finish and the die cast zinc can be made with the following finishes: matte black, natural, brushed chrome, polished chrome, and textured chrome.
