J. W. Winco, Inc., a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced it now offers Zinc Die-Cast Door Locking Mechanisms.    Available in metric sizes, these locks are economical.  They offer a straight-forward locking action, rather than a locking and clamping action.  The choice of 22 differently-shaped catch plates provides a range of latching distances from 4 to 50 mm, or 0.157 to 1.97 inches. Locks with key operation are supplied with two keys, which can be removed from the lock in both open and locked positions.  In the standard key lock versions, all locks can be operated with the identical key.  Locks requiring different keys are available upon request.The housing of the door locking mechanism is zinc die-cast with a chrome-plated finish.  The lock hardware is made of steel and zinc-plated with a blue passivated finish.  The hand knob is constructed of black glass-filled nylon plastic.* Cam, spacer tube and spindle: Zinc plated and yellow passivated finish * Hand knob (for Type SG): Black technopolymer (Polyamide), DIN 6336 Type K
