Thumb press compression lock
The thumb compression lock from Trailer Parts Direct is a high quality locking device to ensure your compartment and any items or objects contained inside are safe and secure.
Compression locks, also known as pop locks or omega latches, are simple yet effective devices so you can go about your day without having to worry about your property.
The thumb press compression lock is perfect for a variety of vehicular and related applications. It’s great for use in camper trailers and caravans, as well as canopies, truck bodies, trailers, four-wheel-drives and toolboxes.
As its name suggests, the thumb press compression is operated by pressing down on the central button. While designed for thumb usage, you can use any finger that suits you. Once compressed, the internal lock is released, the handle swings out and opens, and you can easily draw out the slide.
We don’t compromise on the quality of our trailer products and our compression lock is no different. Designed and manufactured to exact specifications, every lock that passes through our doors has undergone our strict quality control check.
Our locks employ the use of a common handle for easy and ergonomic use. The non-locking drawer slides feature reliable mechanisms in both our 125 kilogram and 227 kilogram series.
There’s nothing worse than a lock that just won’t lock correctly into place. Our compression locks are designed for a flush fit so that they don’t compromise the aesthetic or functionality of your vehicle or toolbox.
It’s not just unwanted hands and fingers you want your compression lock to keep away! Designed with industry leading water resistance, not a drop of moisture or water will seep through our thumb press lock.
Fitted with a high quality compressed seal, the thumb press compression lock ensures perfect mounting for an exact application. Dust, dirt, water–your toolbox or compartment is protected from it all thanks to the integrity of our sealing.
When you order a compression lock form Trailer Parts Direct, we’ll include a rubber gasket too. We don’t just offer high quality products, we ensure high quality service too. That’s a guarantee.
Chrome and black finish
With a choice of two finishes–chrome and black–you’ll be able to select the lock that best suits your campervan, trailer or toolbox.
Designed and manufactured for practicality and suitability above all else, our thumb press compression locks are 50 millimetres in width and 102.8 millimetres in height. The swing out motion covers 60 degrees of movement on a durable spring mechanism.
Thanks to a robustly designed and simple to use key locking system, your toolbox or compartment can be secured manually or left unlocked whenever you want. Each compression lock set comes with two pre-made keys.
Trailer Parts Direct hasn’t curated a reputation of providing high value products for nothing. Thanks to our industry leading commitment to affordability, our thumb compression lock is available at a highly competitive price.
Trailer Parts Direct provides 12-month replacement warranties on all of our products and hardware, and the thumb press compression lock is no different. With a guaranteed replacement warranty for malfunctioning items, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you made the right choice with our lock.
Life’s complicated enough. That’s why we’ve kept the installation of our compression lock as simple as possible.
- Ensure your application has the right size and shape cut out for receiving the lock.
- Place the compression lock using the basic rectangular cut out at the back of the lock.
- Make sure the lock is tight with the parameters of the handle.
- Place the backing plate on the other side of the lock.
- By firmly squeezing the lock and holding in place you’ll make sure it won’t move or displace while tightening.
