The aim of our paper is to present the development proses of a locking mechanism that may act as each a hinge and a lock, compresses the gaskets between the panel and the door at least 6 mm, helps to supply controlled air outlet and will increase the protection level. Thanks to the compression feature of the product, the novel designed mechanism could be tightened the cabinet by the cabinet gaskets. It provides IP65 sealing standard requirements. Thus, it can be used in outdoor environments in safe. Since this mechanism be developed more, it can be used in ventilation, generator, and plenty of different sectors. It has a high potential to lead to new applications and R&D studies in numerous technology fields.
