080-0550 Downsized Grapple Compression Latch

This new grapple style compression latch is designed for compartments, access panels and hoods for off-highway vehicle applications that are subject to high vibration loads. Similar in function to TriMark’s 080-0500 Grapple Style Compression Latch, this version offers a space saving design that is retrofittable to popular competitor latches. Offering 5mm (.197") of compression, the three robust opposing jaws work with a striker diameter of 8.0-9.5mm (.315”-.375”), providing a high level of resistance to vibration, shock and wear.


  • Its use in gasketed applications meets requirements for environmental sealing, noise and airflow management - helps reduce or eliminate noise and rattle caused by vibration
  • Provides sturdy door support to eliminate extra wear/stress on door hinges as seen with other latches that provide minimal support
  • Sealed housing provides for minimal intrusion of dirt and water
  • Intuitive open and close actuation does not require a turning operation with the handle
  • Handle provides over-center action and remains up (flagged) when latch is open providing clear open/closed status
  • Designed to fit mounting cutout of popular competitor latches (86mm/3.39" square mounting)


  • Locking options - Padlockable only or Padlockable and key locking
    • Provisions to accept a standard padlock, plus it can be keyed to match other TriMark door products with KeyOne Plus for a single-key system, keyed alike or provided keyed random


  • Handle: Sturdy die cast zinc alloy
  • Latch and housing: Steel construction


  • Standard: zinc plate, clear chromate conversion coat for maximum paint adhesion and resistance to rust
  • Optional: black powder coated housing and handle or combination black powder coated housing and buffed chrome handle


  • (4) 6mm or 1/4" diameter steel "pop" rivets, M6 or 1/4-20 screws (not included)
