That's what I figured, but wanted to make sure. I'll have a dig around after the Kids are in bed.

Hi, I buy from Protex for work, but haven't found anything in their range thats suits my need.
I have a couple of their over-centre latches holding my console door closed and they are VERY nice, well made, pieces of kit.

Nasher.
It's my cousins company - We use one of these http://www.protex.com/product.asp?in...lush%20Latches to keep our hatch closed on the race boat - this was a plastic one, not sure if it's in production yet?

Cookee Hi.

I did see those Protex ones and considered them seriously, however i didn't think they lookled very watertight because of the way you push the latch into the locker to open it.
Is there a seal around them to stop the water getting in when closed?

Sorry, confused, which company is your cousins?

I wouldn't say watertight, but we use it in the floor locker in the 770's (stainless version) and on the race boat, neither of which are very critical, it depends on the use. it may be possible to fabricate something to keep the water out if you really like it or thee is nothing else available! Protex is my cousins company, parent company H S Cooke - my grandfather!

I bought a couple of these from Alexander Industrial in the uk. They are Southco latches and are fantastic quality and waterproof, but they cost about 40 each . I paid up cos they were the only thing I could find that would do the job and give a really smart finish.
