Steel Paddles Standard Panel-Piercing Dimensions

These are recommended panel-piercing dimensions for our range of standard-size steel paddle latches, both locking and non-locking models. Note the different fixing-centres for open-fix and concealed-fix (‘blind-mounted’) models.

Open-fixing models can be mounted with rivets, or M6 (1/4-inch) dome-headed bolts and appropriate washers and securing nuts.

Concealed-fix models have 4-off weld-studs, (M6 x 15mm) at positions shown. Recommended maximum torque when applying nuts is 4.5Nm (3.3 ft.lb).
All dimensions shown are rounded to the nearest millimetre. Please request a drawing for the exact product specific and tolerances.
