Southco has redesigned the wing knob version of its successful E5 Cam Latch series with a stylish, streamlined design that promotes improved ergonomics and enhanced security. The new E5 Wing Knob adds a padlockable feature capable of accepting a hasp shackle up to 8mm in diameter, and promotes a redesigned wing knob that functions as both handle and actuator.

The redesigned E5 Wing Knob features concave side surfaces that provide aesthetic appeal as well as positive finger grip for ease of opening panels and doors with a gloved hand. A spring loaded ball detent provides sensory feedback and helps to verify that the door is fully opened or closed with an audible “click”.

Tested to NEMA 4 and IP65 standards for water and dust protection, the E5 Wing Knob provides a high degree of ingress protection and is suitable for use indoors and out.

Southco’s line of E5 Cam Latches delivers robust, vibration-resistant fastening, features a variety of grip lengths and is available in numerous head style options for added security. Additionally, the E5 Wing Knob Cam Latch features the same panel hole prep as the standard series and is available with a separate latch and cam assembly to promote modular use.

The padlockable E5 Wing Knob Cam Latch provides ergonomic operation and secure latching in applications where increased security is necessary, such as industrial equipment with Lockout Tagout (LOTO) requirements.

About the Author:

I'm one of the Steeves in Steeves Agencies! I'm proud to be the second generation to carry on the family business after my dad started it all in 1980. You could say I grew up in this business, and that all the important things I learned about business, I learned from my dad. The rest, I learned through many mistakes and a couple years of evening classes. My role tends to vary between Marketing and Operations, which, in my case, are just fancy titles for “learning about marketing”, "shovelling snow" or "replacing ceiling tiles" most days. I also love to draw, especially cartoons. With inspiration from artists who do “family” type cartoons, most of my cartoons are based on learning experiences and moments in life that can’t be captured in a photo.
