Hi guys, new to the forums here, so hello!
I'm so stuck right now trying to think of the name of this type of latch. I spent hours googling this but the closest I could get is compression latch which isn't right at all.
I know I have actually used this type before so I'm sure someone will have ideas.
I made a rough sketch. Basically it's a half cup shape that is rotated 180 deg using a lever. In the closed position the cup wedges against the mating boss therefore capturing it in all directions of movement.
at first I thought like air craft or machine panels or doors but there's nothing on Google.

Yeah McMaster is my go to but there's nothing on there. I searched through all of southco but didn't see anything.
A latch is a type of mechanical fastener thatis used to join two or more objects or surfaces together while allowing for theregular or eventual separation of the objects or surfaces.
