DIRAK Inc. (Chantilly, VA) has developed a new padlockable "L-Handle with defeater," whose design offers a keyed cylinder barrel or slotted-insert access mechanism as well as a padlock. The automatic defeater, which closes and locks the handle without any secondary latching operation on the part of the user, provides security even in the absence of a padlock. The padlockable L-Handle targets indoor and outdoor enclosure applications in industries requiring restricted access—including networking, telecommunications, medical, food equipment, HVAC, and industrial machinery.
