Anyone know where to get these?

Unread postAuthor: schismatized » Tue Jul 03, 2007 11:51 am

Im looking for some latches to make my own cam locking system for my coaxial. I found some here:http://www.southco.com/product/class.aspx?cid=7418 but i cant order from that site. i believe they only ship in large quantities. I was planning on either using two or four of these guys. Anyone know a good place to find them?

mcmaster has them, but they are pricey and i refuse to buy from them anyways. i cant stand how they tell you your shipping price after you already placed your order. :x I am going to try my local hardware stores tomorrow. I cant believe i cant find them on the net. :evil:

You could try bungee straps. There work the same as the metals ones that you found execpt that they are rubber. I dont know if they would hold but you could try it.

Also look at water pumps fittings, they have them but I dont know if they are pressure rated. I have some, I will see if they are.

I went to home depot today, and they said they didnt carry any. it seems like i can find three or four manufacturers that make a million different types of these guys, but nobody actually sells them. hey WOW!!, where did you buy your bungie straps? im really running out of ideas here, anybody got anything?

IDEA!!! :idea: What about the things on a pressure pot for a spray rig?

I could make some of those pretty easily, the only problem would be attaching them to the pvc.

OK, now Im sounding like a noob because Im not 100% what cam locks are :oops:
If Im correct in what Im thinking, what about those locking things on cookie jars (its only like 2-3$)
Heres a pic (sorry, the lid broke off the jar) http://s203.photobucket.com/albums/aa95 ... amlock.jpg

Sorry if Im totally wrong here! :oops: :oops:

arent cam-lock's made by Banjo?

anyway, try the big wingnut screw down thing. you should make a breech on a HUGE cannon like that................ that would OWN.

anyway, banjo makes cam-locks. im 100% sure of that. and mcmaster is sadly the only place youre gonna find them, as far as i know.

How about engine cover locks out of a van??? Look them up for a 1988 G20 Chevy Van. Used auto parts yards would probly sell them to you cheap, you need both the striker post (screws out with a 55 Torx bit), and the latch.

jrrdw, thats actually where i got the idea to look for the latches i posted in the first post of this thread lol. I have to ford vans. the problem is, they are set at an angle and not straight forward so i dont think they would apply pressure the right way. I think i am going to try the wing nut thing, for now. Still looking for a way to mount it tho :lol:
