The Ocean Kayak 6 in. Cam Lock Hatch Kit is standard on some Ocean Kayaks but can also be installed in the same area you would install an optional 6in. hatch. 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.
Love this hatch! I read installation instructions and prepared carefully before cutting as I only had one chance. The total installation took about 30 minutes. I found that tracing the wobbly gasket as they instructed was difficult and produced an imperfect circle, so I used a Dremmel drill with a cutting bit and circle cutting guide instead of the recommended jigsaw. This produced a perfectly centered circle. I also cut the circle a hair smaller so that sanding the whole smooth would not make the hole too large. I prefer to error on the side of too small. You can always make your hole a little larger, but once it is cut, you cannot make it smaller.
This hatch fit my Old Town Predator 13 perfectly. Thanks ACK!
