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.
Installed this 6 " hatch on the rear tank well of my Predator 13. Fit perfect. Thanks ACK on the help of getting the right size for me. Your staff is the best out there. The screws are a little short, so the lock nuts do not get a full bite depending on your application and thickness of material. I also learned that a 8" hatch does not mean it will fit in a 8" area. Old Town told me to get a 8" hatch so i ordered one from ACK. Well it was to large to fit in that area. I sent a email to ACK and asked if they could take the 8" back and recommend one that would work. The 6" hatch fit perfect into the 8" area. You need to account for the screw down rim and how much space it takes up. If you have any concerns about what will work for your kayak, call ACK and they will help. Great service and shipping.
Nice hatch, It would be great if it had a storage bag or container like the Hobie.
