TDS 107-3A | Type 3 Latch S1500-3-750 and the Rod Receiver

The use of a Rod Receiver in combination with a Type 3 Latch offers a simple and economical way to join members such as 2x4s. The Rod Receiver is the least expensive and most easily installed receiver. It can also be used with any Norse Latch. The setback of the Latch can vary to accommodate application requirements. Locating, drilling and installing the Rod Receiver can actually be done when the panel members are about to be put together. In certain applications this can be highly advantageous.

TDS 107-4A | Type 3 Latch and Receiver: Joining Sheet Metal Components

When sheet metal components are joined and they are to be touching, it is necessary to dimple the material to flush mount the attaching screws. Being that the flanges of the Latch and Receiver cases are also dimpled, a buildup of the simple “stack” occurs as shown below. Obviously this adds to the gap between the case flange faces and must be factored into the “setbacks” chosen to maintain approximately the proper “reach” of the Latch hook. The S1500-3-750 latch chosen in this assembly has a ‘reach’ of 1.500”, which satisfactorily matches the 1.477”/37.5mm span between the Latch hex and the Receiver pin.
