The invention provides a latch mechanism particularly suitable for snap-lock attachment of a structure holding the latch to a structure having mating recesses. Generally, the invention relates to spring-biased, cam-operated latches and more particularly to a positive-locking latch device in which a circular band spring biases locking pins into retaining holes in a structure to which the latch is being attached. The latch is released by rotating a cam actuator which contacts the locking pins and withdraws them from the retaining holes.
