Trim Loc Hatch Seal is a flexible PVC trim with a sponge rubber tube attached to provide a secure seal around hatch and other openings. Used by many kayak manufactures on kayaks such as the Ocean Kayak Drifter and Prowler series as well as the Hobie brand kayaks, Trim Loc Hatch Seal is sold by the foot and comes in two versions, top glued and side glued.
The same sized trim lock hatch seal proved difficult to source in Australia. Austin Kayak were prompt with quotes, and were able to dispatch it so that it arrived in Australia (half way around the World from Texas)in about a week. The seal is easy to cut to size, and easy to fit to the canoe, and I now again have a watertight hatch.
not large enough for the front hatch of a hobie pro angler can be used for the center tackle hatch seal on a older model . made better than stock not glued together
Seems better than the stuff that came with my revo. A little har getting on. Helps if you use a rubber mallet.
Hobie Revolutions: I wasn't paying attention when I ordered the Hatch Seal on my older Revo and got the Side Glued seal which seems to work great and doesn't get hooked when shoving stuff in/out of hatch. Time for the second Hobie hatch seal replacement and didn't pay attention again. I ordered the Top Molded seal which is more like the original Hobie seal but it is molded together which should be more durable than Hobie's glued seal. Time will tell.
