Reducing Rotation Needed to Operate

A standard feature of all 'S' Series Latches allows the amount of rotation of the operating key or handle to be reduced considerably from the normal, where the application requires it.

By installing the pre-cocking rivet as shown, the required rotation can be reduced to as little as 135°. This allows the 'over reach' and leaves the spring hook protruding. Radial orientation of the key (or Handle) is optional, as application requires. A Type 1 Latch is shown.

Norse Latches can be 'Ganged' and or remotely operated

Two or more Norse Latches can be 'ganged', and/or operated in various ways; remotely, by hex keys, wrenches, via gear boxes, or by a variety of handles which are available.

Latch/Receiver Positioning can be Multi-Directional = Designer Freedom

The Norse Latch locks upon itself after contacting the Receiver, independent of the Latch Case orientation relative to the Receiver, as shown in Fig. 8. This capability is true of Latch Types 1, 2 & 3.
