Slam Catch - for Ø 10 mm Round Rods

A heavy duty catch with slam-latch-action. Commonly used hidden in vehicle doors and similar as it will firmly grip a rod inserted radially through it's jaws. These are equipped with miniature brass rollers to allow for slight movement.The jaws will only open to let the rod in. To remove rod, it must therefore be pulled out lengthwise from the jaws. This action is simplified with the brass rollers.

The catch engages easily, latching the rod inside the unit. For large vehicles, the latch may be ordered pre-mounted in the optional spring-loaded fixation plate to compensate for sideways movements of panels and doors. This spring-loaded combination (B) will also prevent wear on the latching rod as the latching point will smoothly flex in the application. Use Torx "T-30" bit for mounting version B.

The latch will accomodate a Ø 10 mm latching rod P/N 282130-LLLL that is supplied on request in custom lengths (-LLLL in the part number is specified as the custom length in mm) and is used together with a 10 mm rod adapter with ear: 282119-10. The adapter adds 14 mm to the total length (see drawing).
