What kind of closure/latch is this?

Recommended Posts

I have searched everywhere and cannot figure out what this type of purse closure is called. I found something similar on Ohio Travel Bag, but they give no details as to sizing, and the name is just "closure." I'd love to get a couple for some small bags, because they are actually really convenient to operate.

Well, I know what it is called, but good luck finding them to purchase.  They are called "piston clasps" or "piston closures".  Since the one pictured and most of the ones I saw online are marked Gucci, they are likely proprietary.

This type of closure is also used on keyrings.  Maybe there is a keyring that could be adapted for this purpose?

I'm guessing that is a proprietary closure built for Gucci.

Give OTB a call. They will be glad to give you the size. Nice folks.

I don't love that it's zinc,

Not sure of the actual metal its made from, but the coating is more likely to be chrome. I think it's too shiny to be zinc.
