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.
The Southco v7 draw latch is available with a tamper-resistant locking mechanism that sits flush with the surface of the latch. The latches have a cupped handle and catch, which conceal the working mechanism and hardware and help prevent forced entry.
