Hobie kayak Twist & Seal hatches as used on almost every Hobie kayak model. Fits current models that have 8" round hatches and are retrofittable as a surrogate to earlier round hatches in the original models. The lid is hinged so you'll never lose it over the side and because they aren't a threaded style hatch, never seize up inconveniently. Designed with a cork-screw-like mechanism for closure, a simple twist of the handle opens or closes the hatch. As the screw pulls down the hatch, you get a tight seal on the 'O Ring' seal against the inner cylinder. The hatch seals around the edge of the cylinder and does not have to be held down against a flat surface to seal. This allows the hatch to seal even if the lid is partially open or tipped. Flip the handle into the recess to “lock” it closed.
