What is the difference between a LatchLock and the part number I requested?

Do latchlocks only work connecting panels in plane? Or is it possible to also connect panels at an angle?

Most latches are designed so that they work with panels that are in plane.
However for some applications there is the requirement to hook at an angle.

Everything has to do with the pivot point that needs to be reached.

So the latch would have to be different, as you see on below drawing the centre of the pin is higher than the imaginary line between the hook gripping pint and latch pin.

You can latch on curved surfaces though
