6 information about box latches that help you make decisions

If you have a motorbike and an ALU suitcase (aluminum), for sure you have already dealt with their locking in the form of box latches. But even as a company you appreciate a supplier with quality locks for boxes. For customers, these products are particularly indispensable for quality combined with an affordable price.


Indeed, box latches are used wherever it is necessary to combine the price and product functionality in the best possible way. For greater comfort while making decisions here is an overview of what you can find in the package with box latches from our company.

1.   On what kind of material can you rely on?

Most often box latches are made of steel and stainless steel (also inox). Other kinds of materials are negligible for this product. Zinc is used for the steel surface treatment. The surface is smooth with stainless steel.


Resistance, anti-corrosion and other higher quality attributes can mainly be provided by stainless steel or so-called inox. Our box latches produced from this steel belong to class AISI 304 (American Iron and Steel Institute). It is a frequently used kind of steel strengthened mainly with chromium and nickel, therefore placed among austenitic chrome-nickel stainless steels.

2. Sizes and adjustments of box latches

Box latches can be divided into different types – rotary, adjustable, lockable or non-lockable. Each closure can be a different size. What is a big advantage though is that some of them can be adjusted according to your parameters. The exact dimensions and other technical specifics can be seen in our catalog in the box latches section.


3. With or without key

The range is divided into latches that use a key or are non-lockable. If you need advice feel free to ask.
