Nothing hampers your sustainability efforts more than a broken refrigerator latch. These small refrigerator parts often go unnoticed and underappreciated until they stop working properly, and that's when you've really got a problem on your hands. A failed refrigerator latch sets off a chain reaction of bad news starting first with your soaring energy bills. When cool air escapes easily from your refrigerator or walk-in cooler, your equipment is working that much harder to maintain temperature. And when your equipment works harder, guess what—your equipment has a shorter lifespan because it's working so hard. Finally, if your equipment is unable to keep the interior of the walk-in cooler or refrigerator cold, then you've got a lot of spoiled product on your hands. Ouch. Don't let this lose-lose-lose situation happen to you! Shop our diverse selection of high quality, reliable refrigeration latches from the industry's leading manufacturers like Kason, Original Parts, Nor-Lake and more.
Refrigerator Latch Buying Considerations
Due to the mechanical nature of a refrigerator latch, these mechanisms will naturally wear over time. However, the key to making the most out of your latch is to purchase the right part to begin with. If you live in a humid environment, consider latches that are stainless steel and will not rust over time. Another way to extend the life of your refrigerator latch is to keep it clean. Some manufacturers like Kason design refrigerator latches in such a way as to prevent dirt and debris from entering its internal locking mechanism. Finally, train your staff to treat equipment with care. Undue stress on the latch will undoubtedly break your refrigerator latch sooner than expected.
