Fastening: Southco®’s new TM Swim door latch provides an ample grip and a solid look and feel for applications that do not require a key locking swing door latch. Its marine-grade, corrosion-resistant construction offers longevity and durability for transom doors, flying bridge doors, windshields and other above-deck or below-deck marine applications.
With a CF-8M body - the nominal cast equivalent of 316 stainless steel - a 304 stainless-steel spring, screw and nut, and PA6 and EPDM components, the TM Swim door latch has the durability to withstand the harshest marine and outdoor environments.
It has an electropolished finish and a low-profile handle minimizes protrusion to prevent snagging. The handle also has a push button release and swings 90 degrees in either direction to offer mounting and operating convenience in any swing door application.
