The Hobie hatch looks and operates vey well. To add to the well built hatch, I used #10 ss bolts and ss flange nuts for increased strength and durability. Take a little time and do it right, you won't regret it. The rectangular drop-in bucket I added had to be lightly belt sanded on the bottom corners to fit my outback properly but when completed it had enough room for three tackle boxes or two boxes and numerous singular tools as well as my wallet and phone in the handy mesh pocket under the hatch lid. Tight lines, Scott

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!

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.
