HONG KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 16 October 2019 – Southco has extended its successful line of captive hardware with a new version that features lever-actuated operation for faster and easier latching and unlatching of electronic components. Southco’s compact lever-actuated 56 Spring-Loaded Plunger offers an improved grip for simplified hand operation and saves time when installing or removing components in tight spaces.
Lever Actuated 56 Spring-Loaded Plunger
Southco’s lever-actuated 56 Spring-Loaded Plunger boasts a useful hold-open feature when the lever is actuated, providing clear visual confirmation when the plunger is unlatched and keeping the plunger in a retracted position for easy removal. Actuated with a single motion, the lever-actuated 56 Spring-Loaded Plunger saves time in comparison to current round knob, hold-open versions requiring a two-step lift and turn operation to unfasten. Additionally, the lever-actuated 56 Spring-Loaded Plunger is available in prism colors for differentiation between application zones and is available in thread-in, flare-in and press-in installation options.
Global Product Manager Jim Grady adds, “The easy to grip lever-actuated 56 Spring-Loaded Plunger provides quick hand operation for latching and unlatching, facilitating the installation and replacement of components used in various electronics applications including HDD carriers, metal trays and power supplies.”
