Old Town Vapor 10 Stern Hatch
Kit ..great fit along with great
Perfect fit, factory stuff. Seems
a little pricey for what it is, but
ACK is cheaper than anyone
else. They installed mine for
me when I ordered the kayak
at the same time, but I have
previously installed one and it
is a piece of cake if you own or
can borrow a rivet gun.
5 minute install. The pop rivets don't pop in
the correct place so you need to break them
off with pliers. No big deal, but you will need
to do touch up if you care.
This is a great addition to the
Vapor. Paddled in the rain and
it was great, kept items dry.
Also, I ordered the Vapor from
ACK as well, when it arrived,
the hatch was already
product was just as described.
delivery was fast and not too
expensive. I has one little problem
with the rivets, but that was not ACK's
fault. but the customer service rep.
was great. They replaced the rivets at
no extra cost. I will shop at ACK
again for that reason.
This kit would be great but there is a
hardware issue.The rivets supplied
are not the standard pop type. So
after you insert the rivets you have
to cut the stems off.Instructions call
for 3/16 rivet hole's.The supplied
rivets would not fit in a 3/16 hole.Had
to go 15/64 on the holes.i think the
solution is to use other rivets.
This is a wonderful addition to our Kayaks.
Received a call from customer service,
shortly after ordering, and was given the
option of free installation. Accepted the offer
and am very pleased.
Parts were no problem to
install. Service was great.
Price was great compared to
others I checked.

Great fit, easy installation.
Provides a great place to keep
a small, soft sided cooler and
a dry box with phone, wallet
and keys. Keeps a lot of the
water out but it really
prevents stuff from falling
out. Nice low cost addition.
Perfect fit. Very easy
installation. Only tools needed
are a drill, a couple drill
bits, and a pop riveter.
This was a great addition and
necessity for my Kayak.
Installation was very easy
with the correct tools. When
seated inside the Kayak it is
hard to reach back and close
the hatch. I solved that
problem by adding a pull cord
to close the hatch easily
without having to reach far
This hatch kit is a great
accessory. It was very easy
to install and I feel is a
necessity for this kayak. Not
only does it improve the
functionality of the storage
area it also makes for a much
more finished look.
