Finding Exact Replacement Boat Latches

Since we were the original supplier to most boat builders, we carry a majority of the boat latches used throughout the marine industry. Beyond our years of experience and a team of experts at the ready, one other unique feature is the ability to shop by your boat’s brand. With hundreds of latches to choose from, this helps by narrowing them down to the latches used by your particular boat builder during original construction.

Types of marine Latches and Their Common Uses

Flush/Slam latches - Perfect for latching storage unit doors and drawers, livewell lids as well as console and access doors. 

Push Button latches - Generally used on smaller access doors like electronic box lids and glove boxes as they can function in a smaller footprint than the abovementioned slam latches. 

Cam/Compression Latches - Ideal for larger access doors and deck hatches. Additionally, they are great for doors that require more than one latch allowing the user to access the area without the use of multiple hands.

Draw Latches - Used primarily as a hatch hold down these are generally installed in a vertical application and hold hatches in place when underway.

Barrel Bolts - Perfect for securing smaller swinging access doors like a small transom or dive door.

Cabin Door Latches - Primarily used on bifold doors where an upper hatch closes over the top of the door or sliding cabin entry doors where the door slides to close into the frame. 

Head Door Latches - Perfect for larger head or console doors, these latches require some tooling to ensure proper functionality.

Transom Door Latches - A fair amount beefier than the aforementioned barrel bolts, these latches are specifically designed for application on larger transom and dive doors.

Graber Latches - These styles of latches vary by application, but in most cases act as a lower strength alternative when a visible latch is not desired. Some feature push to close and open access while others are perfect for smaller, lighter weight hatches and upholstery.

Specialty Latches - In addition to the commonly used latches above, we also carry a variety or specialty latches that can be used in a variety of applications like pull pins for cooler slides or for access under seating or large sundecks to name a few.

Other Marine Latch Considerations

Locking Vs. Non-Locking -  Most latches we carry are available in both locking and non-locking versions. Although the locking versions offer more security, you may opt for a non-locking version for convenience of access as well as in some cases cost savings. Should you opt for a locking latch or currently have them installed on the boat and lose your key, we offer a variety of replacement keys for most locking latches.

Material -  Material must also be considered when selecting a latch for your next project. We primarily carry latches made from stainless steel or plastic. Stainless steel latches are usually more expensive, but give an appealing finished look and will not crack or break as easily as those composed of plastic. That said, plastic latches may be a better option if you are looking to save a little money and don't need something as durable over time.
