I added this to my 2015 Outback and placed it vertically. It fits just fine, plenty of room to open/close the hatch without having to lift your legs or move around. No instructions come with this so be sure to install the gasket between the top cover of the hatch and the surface of the kayak. I added some Marine Goop to the two remaining holes from the circular hatch after cutting out the rectangular pattern by placing a piece of tape on the underside (inside of kayak opening) and then filling the topside with the Goop then placed the gasket over that. As I posted elsewhere you should get 1" SS screws, the 3/4" were too short to fully engage the bosses on the underside hatch frame. I really like the convenience of this system!

Installed into a 2015 outback with the bucket works great. Downside- no gasket or screws. Had to find them some where else. 5 stars if you had a kit with the hatch, screws and gasket for a few $ more.

Top Question & Answer
Q: I have a 2012 Outback, will the "Hobie Rectangular Twist and Seal Hatch" fit? It states 2013 and later, but I was unaware of a hull change between the 2012 and 2013 models.
A: Yes it will fit after some modification (cutting) there are no changes on the hull between the 2012 and the 2013 model.

Q: I have a 2015 Outback and am considering the Hobie Rectangular Twist and Seal Hatch. Question : Does this affect my warranty?
A: If you have an issue with your kayak that Hobie deems "caused by the install", this may prove to void the warranty. Any other issue however, will be within the warranty policy.
