    Need something similar to this

    http://www.protex.com/product/show/name/490-9000%21170


    To grip onto the round tube on a front bike rack.
    Going to make a large box for fencing stuff that can asily be taken on and off.
    Hence the need for a couple Over Centre clamps.
    Half round end rather than the eye etc that hooks onto a matching part that is common.
    Anyone seen some?

    Yep my long google came up with loads like that, but what I wanted was the same to grip onto the round bars on the bike, not to a fitting like those ones!

    Would antiluce fasteners be an alternative?

    Hmmmm
    Trying to make box full width of Rack.
    So over centre catches seemed the best way , diff to see how to use antiluce without extra brackets and loosing width.
    Thinking now I can probably find the beefiest over centre ones I can and weld a suitable adaptor onto them, to grip the Bike Rack.
    gee

    Looks like an easier conversion......
    Ordered a couple of ordinary latches yesterday so we will see how it goes.

    Yes, at least I've seen them used a few times with no complaints

    As the thread is few years old most of the links are not valid anymore, so I will post a source for wide range of toggle latches https://www.ojopsweden.com/toggle-latches/
