spring loaded latch? pop latch? something like that, haha...
Hi, first time caller long time listener, so be gentle.
I'm going to fabricate myself a spring loaded popup dashboard monitor (don't want to go into all the hastle of motorised screens - 05 RX-8 custom fab install (motorized flip-up screen)) - I don't see popping the thing up as a problem - but I need help keeping it down.
I figured I'd need to use some of those (magnetic?) push-pop thingies, the ones where you push them down to keep it in place, then push it again to release it? But I cant think what they are called? Any ideas? Or any better suggestions?
Its a touch latch! Unfortunatly they seem to be a little too big for what I want.
There seem to be some pretty small ones out there. Maybe one like this will fit . . .
If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

I have seen some sort of small ones at HomeDepot in the cabinet/hardware aisles. I used them for a project in highschool and they worked well.
