Commonly known as a type of mechanical fastener, toggle latches join two or more objects and allow regular separation. They typically engage another piece of hardware on another mounting surface. Depending on their design and type, the hardware may be known as a strike or catch.
It is a mechanical piece of hardware which in the locked position ensures secure fastening of two surfaces, panels or objects and when unlocked allows separation. The main components are the base plate with lever and attached loop and the other being the catch plate. The tension is created once the loop is hooked onto the catch plate and the lever is clamped down. Tension is released when the handle is pulled up to the vertical position.
