The easy to open toggle handle makes storage in the cavity of your boat easy. The Ocean Kayak 6 in. Cam Lock Hatch Kit fits the Ocean Kayak Big Yak, Caper, Drifter, Frenzy, Mars, Mysto, Peekaboo, Prowler 15, Scupper Pro TW, Venus 10 and Zest Two EXP. Mounting hardware included.

Easy install. I installed on an Ocean Kayak XL Malibu Two. Reccomend using rivets instead of screws due to the boats hatch construction
Very difficult install. Screws are too short for nuts and interior flange gets in the way of tightening with wrench. Instructions say use wrench but not possible. Need to use a socket. Once installed functions effectively.
Very sturdy and works good. I put seal washers on the bolts (pan head 10/32 x 1") that cover the screw holes to add extra holding strength to the bolts. Don't over tighten.
I installed this in an Ocean Kayak Zest Two. It should have taken about ten minutes to install, however, as some have mentioned, the bolts are just a little too short. I had to buy some an inch longer from the hardware store to make it work. Aside from that, the product was delivered quickly, no parts were missing, the instructions were very good and the new hatch works great. Overall a great purchase.
