Pull latch secures 19-in racks

Paul Boughton

Dirak has introduced a new simple to install pull latch handle. A moderate pressing motion is all that is required to install the pull latch handle in place on a prepared panel.

This pull latch handle is suitable for 19-in racks in the computer and telecommunications industries.

The spring loaded pawl allows for simple, push to close motion to secure the racks in place. To remove the rack, a simple tilt of the handle disengages the latching mechanism enabling the rack to be removed.

In many applications the single pull latch handle not only replaces traditional finger pull handles, but also the captive screw that is required to secure the rack in place.

The benefit to manufacturers is fewer parts (one pull latch handle vs. a finger pull handle and a captive screw), quicker installation (one product to install versus two) and simple snap-in installation vs. the use of screws and tools.
