Re: Flush Hatches Hold Do

Lots of possibilites here. You've already gotten a few of them and those are the most common. There is a guy who has either posted here or at the kayak forum who makes some with a locking arm under deck. I can't remember what any of the posts are though, so I can't provide a link, sorry. Basically the arm is like a dead bolt on a door that bolts both sides from a rotation at the center. You twist the "lock" and the arms rotate onto a ramped piece of wood where it comes to position while putting down pressure on the hatch lid.

But there are many possibilities, search here and the kayak forum for "flush hatch" and you'll get a ton of possibilities.
