Southco released its V7 draw latch design in 316 stainless steel. 316 stainless steel is the most corrosive-resistant form of steel, making these latches ideal for marine and outdoor applications. Southco claims these latches are robust enough to handle industrial use, but they have been designed with an appealing aesthetic making them appropriate for use with consumer products and applications.
