What is a Grabber Catch Latch?

A grabber catch latch is a push-to-close style latch which locks when the hooked keeper is inserted into the catch and the cam rotates into the hook of the keeper creating the necessary tension to secure the latch in place. Grabber catch latches are typically actuated (unlocked) using electronic switches or pressure (pushing or squeezing the latch to release the cam). Grabber catch latches can be used on swinging or sliding doors and can be mounted to any orientation as long as the keeper and catch orientation correspond.
