ince 1899, Tacke + Lindemann has offered a professional assortment for metalworking sectors, with a main focus on toggle and catch fastener technology. The core of this product range consists of closed and eccentric toggle
catches, fasteners and custom-made fasteners. When flexible, safe, quick and tool-less connections of two work pieces are demanded these high quality catches are the experts’ choice. For any required application a range of fitting variations
are available: Closed fasteners for insulation, packaging and fastening technologies; with and without spring locks, straight or curved baseplates and hook plates. For heavy-duty use, eccentric fasteners – also with hinges – are the optimal solution in noise insulation, machinery, plant and mechanical engineering and also for the maritime sector. For special requirements in car or mould construction, flexible fastening solutions such as strikers are applied.
