The Hobie 6 in. Hatch Bag Kit is designed to drop into the Hobie 6 in. Twist-n-Seal hatch and give you somewhere to store items that won't get lost inside your boat. The Hobie 6 in. Hatch bag Kit includes a back-up ring with lip, mounting screws, and bag with drawstring. This product only works with the 6 in. version of the Hobie Twist and Seal Hatch and will not work with the 8 in. Twist and Seal Hatch Kit.
Don't leave home without it! its not truly water proof but can probably be improved with spray silicone sealant. A must with the hatch. Pops in and out with ease. does not interfere with hatch lid and it works in my ocean kayak CAPER.
well the product is okay. it doesnt have a hatch made for it so if you want this sealed you will have to make something work out. i used plumming items with alot of super glue and silicone. also a screw on lid for pvc tube. all in all i would say spend the extra 10 bucks and get one with a hatch built in. also this does not sit flush to whatever your mounting it to unless you recess the screw plugs. i dremeled them down until they were the same as the rest of the black inserts ring. i would not buy another one. i would pay extra and get something better.
Ok this one took a few people to figure out but we did it. It really should come with instructions, as it seems EVERYONE with complaints below couldn't figure it out and installed it incorrectly. The ring that comes with this bag is the replacement for the ring that is inside the hull that the existing hatch cover screws go into. The twist and seal hatch cover remains on the outside of the hull, and this one replaces the part on the inside. We almost cut off the little screw nubs like a couple of others did to make it sit flush with the kayak! Do not do this! The new ring has a slice cut in it so that it can easily be put into the hole in the kayak. i'm giving it four stars for not including instructions in the package!
Looks like it would be good, but it doesn't fit the space I had for it. I assumed the portal was universal, but it's not. I think I could make it work if I took off the existing rim and installed this, but then the cover wouldn't fit. Did not work for me.
