A drawer’s lock is well a small thing when compared to the whole boat…but the swell, the rolling and pitching, a tack or a gybe, are every day’s things when it comes to sailing and if drawers are not firmly locked they will definitely open by theirselves to throw their contents out ...with disastrous consequences .
The right choice of a simple drawer’s locking system is therefore quite important and will decrete how good or bad your sailing experience will be….Moreover , the trend to use the same soft close guides for drawers as used at home, on boats of course require additional safety latches due to the motion.
Mechanical locking mechanisms cannot be used because the spring latch would need a greater strength then the one used by soft close guides to call the drawer back. Using manual locking systems which need to be operated after the drawer is closed are not safe as one may forget to lock them at all …
For these reasons we designed SOFT CLOSE FLUSH LOCK :
locking mechanisms with magnetic catch for drawers fitted with soft-close system, it automatically locks the drawer with no need of extra gestures or double checking.
