Updated Latches

We are constantly improving our cases and recently, some of our cases have received updated latches. We have improved the look and feel of the latches for the following cases:

540, 710, 720, and 920

These latches have been redesigned to be larger with a locking knob. The vent cover is larger, easier to see and added ribbing to the latch as well.

Please keep in mind these latches will not fit on any older cases. They are made specifically for the newest case revisions.

New Revision for the SE300

se300 revision M

The SE300 is falling in line and getting the same updates as the SE120. The updated handle has a ergonomic grip and also makes a clicking sound when it lays flat, ensuring that the handle is securely locked into place.

The new front lip design improves the rigidity and appearance of the case, while the added padlock mount allows for an extra security option.

8. Place the VHB strips on the Lock surface in between the two grooves as shown.
9. Carefully place the Lock onto the bottom of the SE56.
10. (a) Mark the surface where the Base will be installed and drill for screws or use self tapping screws to attach the Base to your surface
(b) Alternatively you may use VHB to attach the Base to your surface. Install VHB onto Base and carefully place the Base on the item you want to install it onto.

Helpful Hints:
– VHB is incredibly strong but it may require some time to “build” adhesion.
– The SE56 is made from Poly-carbonate so a glue or adhesive appropriate for Poly-carbonate may work well. Most other Seahorse Cases are made from Polypropylene and do not accept glue or adhesive well, in this case use the screw attachment points provided on the Base.
