Vector™ 1 and Vector™ 2

Made for vibrating environments like trucks, diesel generators (gen-sets), ships, air compressors and other vehicles, the Vector™ handle  will do the job. This handle is a real work-horse, and stands up to harsh weather around the world.

Thank's to the 6 mm compression, it will make a sealing profile operate "just right" to keep snow, rain and dust out of the cabinet. The handle is available in two designs - hence the naming "Vector 1" and "Vector 2". 

Both have a sturdy T-handle, good for operating with tough work hands - either bare, or with gloves.

 The handles are lockable with different methods: either with padlock loop, cylinder lock - or non-locking. They work well on almost any vehicle, including boats.

Vector™-handles in a boat application. A tough environment that is perfect for this weather-proof handle.

The Vector™ handle installed in the back of a van. The handle is shown from the inside with a three-point cam latching the door on several points.

We are now proud to offer you our newly developed Vector handle for slam latching. This means that you can just slam the door shut . and the handle will latch. You can choose between a version that can be opened from the inside (emergency opening) or the fixed version.


 The Vector-P handle will have the advantage of slam-latching, but will not have compression, rendering it less useful for really weather-proof applications.
