Kajak-Sport round hatch rims. These ABS plastic rims are for building your own kayak or repairs for broken rims. 

Kayak brands that use Kajak-Sport hatches include: P&H, TideRace, CD, Eddyline, NDK (except the day hatch which uses a Valley cover), Tahe, Rebel, Zegul, Rockpool, and late model fiberglass WS Tempest Pro (not roto-molded Tempests).

The Round Original Rubber series hatch covers are available in four sizes, but the 10cm size is so rarely used (sometimes as an access port to rudder mechanism) that you need to call us for that one.

The Day Box Low is a kit to add a "4th Hatch" in front of your cockpit. Use a 6" hole saw or a saber-saw to cut the hole in the deck for the box (kayak deck must have a flat spot). Assemble by screwing the rim together with the box - "O"-rings make a seal. Uses 15cm hatch cover - not included. Most newer P&H Sea Kayaks come with this box standard.

Typical uses by size (size is the inside diameter of the hatch rim opening not the lid):

15cm/5.91" "Fourth Hatch" (front day hatch in front of cockpit, AKA "whisky hatch" or "glovebox")
Code: 301320

20cm/7.874" "Day Hatch" (behind cockpit except NDK which use Valley hatch cover as an upgrade to the original NDK lid)
Code: 301520

24cm/9.45" Bow Hatch (and sometimes Rear Hatch on kayaks that have a round rear hatch, e.g. NDK Romany)
Code: 301720

Tip: Whenever a rubber hatch cover is difficult to open or close, wipe a little 303 Protectant on the inside lip of the lid and the outside rim of the hatch on the kayak. This will make it much easier to open and close which will protect your kayak from cracking. Also about twice a year it is good to smear 303 on the outside of the cover as a UV block to extend the life of the lid.
