Compression Latch

Choose Style and Function with a Compression Latch

There’s no doubt that latches can make life easier. They offer the same level of security as a traditional knob without the bulky appearance, but what if a traditional latch is still a bit too obvious? If you’re looking for a latch that offers a lower profile without compromising function, choose a compression latch.
Instead of appearing like traditional latches, a compression latch sits low, and in some cases, even flush with the door it’s being installed in. This kind of latch can provide you with even more protection, as the compression mechanism in the latch can dampen sound and vibration, ultimately reducing noise and rattling. It can also provide you with a watertight seal, ensuring that the contents within never become damaged due to moisture.
