What are push-push latches

Push-push latches, often referred to as touch latches, are small, easy-to-integrate components that provide secure, quiet closing and opening for cabinets, drawers, doors and more. These compact devices are designed to keep your storage areas neat, secure and easily accessible.

How do push-push latches work?

Push-push latches work on a simple yet ingenious principle: press once to open, press again to close. When you push the latch, it releases the door or drawer from its closed position, allowing you to open it smoothly. To secure the door or drawer, push until you hear a satisfying "click”. This audible confirmation ensures that your belongings are secure and out of sight.
