Camloc Fasteners Distributor
Widest available selection of quick-operating, 1/4 turn high-performance fasteners. Front mounted, rear mounted are available that eliminate riveting, welding and the need for special tools. Some stud assemblies snap into place with ordinary thumb pressure thus making retaining rings unnecessary.Camloc® fasteners,offer the quickest operating high re-use,mechanical fastening system available. They securely lock and disengage with a simple 90° action. A standard Camloc fastener system consists of a stud and mating receptacle, the panel and frame, along with a method of retaining the stud. Stud retention might be a grommet or retaining ring,or possibly both. Some Camloc series include snap-in type studs, which do not require the use of a retaining ring, and some studs do not require retaining rings or receptacles. Camloc Receptacle types are included with each stud series. Most attach by use of rivets to the underside of the frame. Some simply snap into place from the front or rear of the frame and others are ultrasonically installed.
Camloc Fastener selection consists of finding the desired stud based on strength requirements, head style, installation method and operational characteristics. A Camloc receptacle is then chosen with the selection, varying based upon the stud selected. When calculating the total material thickness, it is important to consider any paint, finishes or compressed gaskets that may be present in the joint.

Camloc Latching Systems
The premier manufacturer of latching mechanisms and avionics hold-down devices, Camloc brings its customers the in-depth experience of many years of working with major aerospace and industrial companies.
Review the Camloc Latch Selection Guide for details on the series you are seeking. Guide includes Camloc Series:
Camloc Structural latch assemblies are used in applications requiring elevated static and dynamic load-carrying capability for larger structures where ease of access for passenger entry, cargo loading, or maintenance is required.
Hook latches and keeper assemblies offer high reliability and quick access when mounted onto engine fan cowls, fairings or thrust reverser structures. Low profile latches provide ease of closure and can be used in limited access areas.
Adjustable hook latches are used in restricted envelopes where an adjustable keeper cannot be installed. The adjustment property offers quick rigging of the latch.
Rotary latches, available in rotary cam or hook actuated versions, can be operated using standard tools.
Access door mechanisms provide ease of entry into frequently accessed panels, doors and hatches.
Pressure relief door latches provide controlled, pressurization-sensitive release loads for engine cowls, fairings and thrust reverser doors.
Push-button latches are available in both one and two-push button designs. The simplified “button” release offers ease of manual operation, facilitating activation if maintenance is performed while wearing heavy gloves.
Clamps are used for the installation and maintenance of wire bundles, hoses, tubing, cable, and conduits.
Pawl latches are designed to secure hinged panels and small doors. The pawl engages the frame structure through the axial rotation of an actuator that turns a wire-form or solid arm pawl.
Camloc® tension latches are used to install light to heavy-duty hinged doors, panels, and structures.
Chassis latches are offered in a wide variety of styles and strengths. Many are used for removable electronic drawers and can seat multiple-pin connectors or RFI gaskets.
Hold-down devices are designed to secure avionics boxes and modules in a variety of aerospace applications.
Self-compensating injector/ejector levers provide consistent self-compensation for circuit board installation tolerances. With minimal finger pressure, multiple-pin or fiberoptic connections can be seated with controlled forces ranging from 20 to 80 pounds.
Latch handle systems are comprised of various types of mechanisms and provide a means of activating latch systems where access to, or visual contact of the latch mechanism, is limited. Flush handle assemblies are used for cargo, APU or emergency door access.
Remotely operated latching systems are designed for fan cowl, engine fairing and thrust reverser systems.
Multiplepin latch assemblies are used to stow removable or hinged door panels in interior or exterior applications.
Hydraulic snubber assemblies are used as dampening devices for radome and tailcone applications. The hydraulic fluid-filled cylinder provides for dual speed operation in the opening and closing directions. The tailcone snubbers are equipped with a remote lock release mechanism to facilitate closure.
