Compression pawl pulls door and frame together; an adjustment shim accommodates doors and covers various thicknesses.
Designed especially for overlay doors or covers, this eccentric compression pawl mounts outside the sealed area. An oblong installation opening in the door makes it possible to shift the latch within this area, compensating for tolerances and—with narrow doors—correcting the angular position of the latch as it enters the frame's engagement hole.
Rotating the handle positions a rounded eccentric cam behind the opening. Swinging the actuator handle closed pulls the cam against the frame. The compression pawl is normally delivered in die-cast zinc with a black finish.
