The cam latch is a clever design that Protofab uses extensively in its product line. The latch includes a grease zerk fitting, making lubrication an easy effort. Note the match marks on the shaft collar and the cold-rolled steel bar. These need to be lined up for the latch to operate properly. We chose to take the cam latch apart for painting, so the matchmarks were a key to successful re-assembly.
