The AeroCatch 3 is an improvement on draw-type tension latches. The high-strength latch is recessed into a housing for easy low-profile mounting (no countersunk pocket is required in the panel). The two halves of the housing bear against each other, taking the pressure off the fragile edges of composite bodywork. The housing also features an engagement tongue which maintains alignment in shear, eliminating the need for alignment pins in the bodywork. The latch has a secondary lock to prevent accidental opening, and lays completely flush with the housing when latched. When open, the hook portion is self-lifting, which makes opening and closing a simple one-handed operation.
The Plus Flush version has a bolt flange that stands just 3/32" above the panel. This flange hides the edges of the cutout in the panel, so the cuts don't need to be clean and precise. The housing and latch handle are black anodized aluminum. Set of 2 complete latches.
Latch halves are also available separately for spare bodywork:
AeroCatch 3 Plus Flush Single Latch Half (Part No. 3038-030)
AeroCatch 3 Plus Flush Single Strike Half (Part No. 3038-031)
We also offer the Flush Mount AeroCatch 3 Panel Latches (Part No. 3038-022) for installations where a visible mounting flange is not acceptable.
