Dirak, a supplier of latching, hinging and profile technology solutions, has launched a compression latch with a spring-loaded pin, providing consistent compression throughout the product lifecycle.

The 6-160.01 compression latch, the latest addition to the company’s range of lever-actuated flush compression latches, also features self-adjusting compression at all times in the application.

Upon installation, the integral firm spring-loaded pin eliminates the initial adjustment commonly required to obtain a tight seal of the gasket and maintains this pressure on the seal throughout the application life.

The user calculates the grip distance (commonly referred to as dimension H in the Dirak product catalogue) and installs the preassembled unit.

The set compression is consistently maintained over time, ensuring the sufficient compression of the gasket between the door and the frame.

Even if the seal weakens over time, compression is automatically adjusted and maintained.

To install the latch into a panel, the user just pushes the latch with the preassembled U bracket through the front of the panel cut-out.

The bracket width is the same width as the cut-out, enabling the complete assembly (including the bracket) to fit through the panel cut-out for installation from the front.

To secure the product on the panel, the user opens the trigger handle and turns the screw from the front.

The preassembled U bracket expands automatically to grip securely behind the sheet metal panel holding the latch firmly in place.

The 6-160.01 compression latch fits in the same cut-out as the existing Dirak compression latch range, enabling it to be retrofitted into existing applications.
