  • Tension latches are a safe locking system for industrial applications.
  • They can take high tensile loads. Lateral forces must be kept off the tension latch by the design of the parts linked with each other.
  • Via lever action, the panels connected with the tension latch and the strike are pulled together.
  • If nessessary, a stop must be provided.
  • Positive lock is achieved when drawhook center is beyond the common center line of the base and strike.
  • For unlocking, the secondary lock is operated and the handle lifted.
  • For locking, the secondary lock automatically engages.
  • Most of the tension latches can be adjusted by a drawhook.
  • For fixed series, a spring-steel drawhook serves for tolerance compensation.
