  • USED EXTENSIVELY IN FRAMED CONSTRUCTION FOR EXHIBITS, DISPLAYS, OFFICE PANELS, PREFAB STRUCTURES, STORE FIXTURES, ACOUSTICAL & SAFETY SHIELDING, ELECTRONIC SHELTERS, THEATRICAL SCENERY, ETC. • HERE ARE A FEW OF MANY LATCH/RECEIVER COMBINATIONS AVAILABLE •  
  • APPLICATIONS  
  • Either the S1500 or the S1250 Spring Hook can be Utilized in the Type 3 Latches  
  • APPLICATIONS  
  • The Variable ‘Setbacks’* and Choice of Spring Hooks The S1500 or S1250 Spring Hook Can Be Used In The Type 3 Latches  
  • The Variable ‘Setbacks’* and Slotted Case Configuration  
  • APPLICATIONS  
  • To further assist you in selecting compatible Latch/Receiver combinations, we have color coded the Latches and correlated them by color with dimensionally mated Receivers when used flange-to-flange as illustrated in Figs. 4, 5, 6.  
  • FOR EXHIBITS, STORE FIXTURES, OFFICE PANELS, PREFAB STRUCTURES, ETC. Shown here in Figs. 1, 2, & 3, as mounted in ‘2x3’ framing. (1.500”/38.1mm x 2.500”/63.5mm), this Latch/Receiver combination is also frequently used in thinner framing (See Figs. 4A & 4B)  
  • The use of a Rod Receiver in combination with a Type 3 Latch offers a simple and economical way to join members such as 2x4s. The Rod Receiver is the least expensive and most easily installed receiver. It can also be used with any Norse Latch. The setback of the Latch can vary to accommodate application requirements. Locating, drilling and installing the Rod Receiver can actually be done when the panel members are about to be put together. In certain applications this can be highly advantageous.  
  • When sheet metal components are joined and they are to be touching, it is necessary to dimple the material to flush mount the attaching screws. Being that the flanges of the Latch and Receiver cases are also dimpled, a buildup of the simple “stack” occurs as shown below. Obviously this adds to the gap between the case flange faces and must be factored into the “setbacks” chosen to maintain approximately the proper “reach” of the Latch hook. The S1500-3-750 latch chosen in this assembly has a ‘reach’ of 1.500”, which satisfactorily matches the 1.477”/37.5mm span between the Latch hex and the Receiver pin.  
  • FOR EXHIBITS, STORE FIXTURES, OFFICE PANELS, PREFAB STRUCTURES, ETC. THIS IS THE MOST FREQUENTLY USED TYPE 3 LATCH RECEIVER COMBINATION FOR THICK PANEL FABRICATION APPLICATIONS  
  • USED ON EXHIBITS, STORE FIXTURES, OFFICE PANELS, PREFAB STRUCTURES, ETC. THIS TYPE 3 LATCH AND ‘H’ RECEIVER ARE MOUNTED BEHIND THE PANEL FRAMING. LESS PANEL PREPARATION • NO LATCH FLANGE RECESS REQUIRED • CAN BE NAILED IN PLACE  
  • A TYPE 3R LATCH AND TYPE 3 RECEIVER MOUNTED IN THICK FRAMING WITH FLANGES REVERSED WITH THE SPRING HOOK OPERATING OUT OF THE REAR OF THE LATCH CASE, THE FABRICATOR CAN INSTALL THE CASE FLANGES BEHIND THE FRAMING.  
  • FOR ‘T’ AND CORNER JOINTS TO AN EXISTING WALL FREQUENTLY USED FOR EXHIBITS, PARTITIONS, SCENERY, ETC.  
  • FOR ‘T’ AND CORNER JOINTS TO AN EXISTING WALL SHOWN HERE IS THE APPLICATION OF AN S1500-3-1.00 LATCH, WHICH IS USED ELSEWHERE THROUGHOUT A PANEL SYSTEM. FREQUENTLY USED FOR EXHIBITS, PARTITIONS, SCENERY, ETC.  
  • FOR JOINING THICKER PANELS TO THIN PANELS AT ‘T’S AND CORNERS These illustrations show how a Type 3 Latch (S1250-3-1.000) Installed in a relatively thick panel can be joined to a much thinner panel by using a Type 2R/S Short Receiver (R/S500-2-250) Please Refer to TDS 115 Showing an Alternate method of accomplishing this Type of joint to an even thinner panel.  
  • FOR JOINING THICKER PANELS TO THIN PANELS AT ‘T’S AND CORNERS THIS PARTICULAR ‘THICK THIN’ PANEL APPLICATION DEALS WITH ACCOMODATING THE USE OF AN S1500-3-1.000 LATCH WHICH IS IS BEING USED EXTENSIVELY ELSEWHERE IN A PANEL SYSTEM, AND HOW THIS JOINING SITUATION CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED WITHOUT INTRODUCING A DIFFERENT TYPE 3 LATCH (VERY SIMILAR IN APPEARANCE, BUT WITH A DIFFERENT “SETBACK”, OR SPRING), WHICH IF MISLOCATED WOULD RESULT IN A MALFUNCTION REFER TO TDSs 114-1 OR TDS 115, WHICH ARE ALTERNATE METHODS OF ACCOMPLISHING THIS TYPE OF JOINT  
  • FOR JOINING THICK PANELS TO THIN PANELS AT ‘T’ AND CORNER JOINTS Attaching a Thick Panel to a Thin Panel in a ‘T’ or Corner Joint Without Penetrating the Thin Member Can Be Readily Accomplished Using a Type 3 Latch and a Shallow Type 2 RSL Receiver in a Blind Mortise as Shown in These Illustrations.  
  • FOR JOINING THICK PANELS TO THIN PANELS AT ‘T’ AND CORNER JOINTS, WITH TYPE 3 LATCH MOUNTED BEHIND FRAMING The Type 3 Latch (S1500-3-625) Mounted Behind a Panel Frame is Frequently Used Throughout a Panel System (See TDS 109) On This Page We Show How a Type 3 Latch in That Mounting Can Be Used With a Shallow Type 2 RSL Receiver Flush Mounted in a Blind Mortise, to Make a ‘T’ or Corner Attachment To a Thin Panel  
  • FOR JOINING THICK PANELS TO THIN PANELS AT “T’ AND CORNER JOINTS The Type 2 RSLS Receiver is Shallower and Shorter in Length (.437”/11.1mm X 4.625”/117.5mm)Than the Standard Type 2 Short Receiver Which is (.500”/12.7mm X 5.750”/146mm) Attaching a Thick Panel to a Thin Panel in a ‘T’ or Corner Joint Without Penetrating the Thin Member can be Readily Accomplished Using a Type 3 Latch and a Shallow Type 2 RSLS Receiver in a Blind Mortise as Shown in These Illustrations  
  • FOR JOINING THICK PANELS TO THIN PANELS AT ‘T’ AND CORNER JOINTS, WITH THE TYPE 3 LATCH MOUNTED BEHIND FRAMING The Type 2 RSLS Receiver is Shallower and Shorter in Length (.437”/11.1mm X 4.625”/117.5mm) Than the Standard Type 2 Short Receiver Which is (.500”/12.7mm X 5.750”/146mm) The Type 3 Latch (S1500-3-625) Mounted Behind a Panel Frame is Frequently Used Throughout a Panel System (See TDS 109) on This Page We Show How a Type 3 Latch in That Mounting can be Used With a Shallow Type 2 RSLS Receiver Flush Mounted in a Blind Mortise, To Make a ‘T’ or Corner Attachment To a Thin Panel  
  • FOR JOINING THICK PANELS TO THIN WALL PANELS OR TUBING Attaching a Thick Panel To a Thin Panel or Tubing can be Readily Accomplished Using Type 3 Latch and a Type 2 Short Slotted Receiver Inserted Thru a Slot in the Thin Wall and Fastened in Place. The Receiver Has Integral Factory Installed Nut Inserts For Attachment as Specified by the Part No. RSL500-2-187/8-32  
  • JOINING THICK PANELS TO THIN PANELS AT “T” AND CORNER JOINTS WITHOUT MORTISING THRU THE THIN MEMBER, IS READILY ACCOMPLISHED WITH A TYPE 3 LATCH AND THE VERY SHALLOW TYPE 3 RSL RECEIVER IN A BLIND MORTISE, AS SHOWN IN THESE ILLUSTRATIONS  
  • TO FASTEN SETS OF TABLE LEGS SECURELY (YET BE ABLE TO REMOVE QUICKLY), A DUAL MOUNTING OF TYPE 3 LATCHES MORTISED INTO THE LEG TOP, WITH SHALLOW TYPE 3 RSL RECEIVERS IN THE UNDERSIDE OF THE TABLE SURFACE, CAN BE USED AS SHOWN HERE. ALIGNING PINS FACILITATE LEG ATTACHMENT.  
  • JOINING THICK PANELS TO THIN PANELS AT ‘T’ & CORNER JOINTS WITHOUT MORTISING THRU THE THIN MEMBER, IS READILY ACCOMPLISHED WITH A TYPE 3 LATCH AND THE VERY SHALLOW TYPE 3 RSL RECEIVER IN A BLIND MORTISE, AS SHOWN IN THESE ILLUSTRATIONS  
  • APPLICATIONS FREQUENTLY ARISE WHERE A TYPE 3 LATCH CAN BE USED TO JOIN ONE COMPONENT TO A METAL MEMBER. A SLOT RECEIVER REALIZES SEVERAL COST AND TIME-SAVING ADVANTAGES. THE SLOT BECOMES THE RECEIVER. THE TYPE 3 LATCH ALLOWS THE DESIGNER/FABRICATOR TO PICK THE APPROPRIATE LATCH SPRING (S1250 OR S1500) AND ‘SETBACK’ TO ACCOMMODATE EXACTLY THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE COMPONENTS BEING JOINED FOR A PERFECT FIT.  
  • USED FOR JOINING STRUCTURAL PANELS, EQUIPMENT ATTACHMENT, CASE CLOSURES, ETC. , WHERE MULTI-POINT SIMULTANEOUS LATCHING IS REQUIRED. MANY DIFFERENT RECEIVERS CAN BE USED. “GANGING” NORSE LATCHES (TYPE 1, TYPE 2 AND TYPE 3) SPACED APART USES A COMMON SHAFT THRU TWO OR MORE LATCHES THAT CAN BE OPERATED FROM EITHER END OF THE SHAFT. INSERTION OF THE SHAFT CAN BE DONE THRU THE ACCESS HOLE AFTER PANEL FABRICATION (SEE FIGS. 2 & 3), OR, IF THE PANEL INTERIOR IS ACCESSIBLE, ASSEMBLE THOSE ELEMENTS BEFORE PANEL CLOSURE (SEE FIGS. 1 & 4).
