CM Truck Beds Raises the Bar In T-Handle Compression Latches

KINGSTON, Okla. - At the 2020 NTEA Work Truck Show, CM Truck Beds will debut several exciting new products and updates to existing beds. Chief among these is a new T-handle compression latch design, which promises improved weather protection and enhanced performance in even the toughest conditions.

CM Truck Bed’s new T-handle compression latch design features a longer travel path, which results in a tighter seal. A pressure-molded plastic tray aids in the prevention of rust and corrosion, while an inlaid rubber seal provides a consistent seal around the perimeter of the latch. As a result, items stored inside toolboxes are better protected from the elements that can enter and cause tools to corrode.

Further, CM Truck Bed’s new T-handle latches feature a heavy-duty offset stainless-steel handle for easy operation with a gloved hand, while an industry-unique keyhole cover prevents the key cylinder from freezing up in frigid temperatures — two significant advantages for work truck users in colder climates.

“We’re excited to introduce this innovative feature during this year’s Work Truck Show,” said CM Truck Beds Vice President Joe Lewis. “As we roll out the new latches across our lineup in Spring 2020, we’re confident that our customers will appreciate this change and value the improved weather protection our toolboxes will provide.”

In addition to offering an expansive product lineup of beds and service bodies featuring best-in-class components, CM Truck Beds is able to offer the fastest lead times. “Faster Than Any Body” means customers can select and receive their perfect bed or body quicker than from any other brand. 

See the new latches, alongside an array of new CM products at the Work Truck Show, March 3-6 at the Indiana Convention Center.
