Recreational 4" & 6" Hatches

4" Round Hatch
(fits Kajak Sport 10cm Round Hatch)
6" Hatch
(fits Kajak Sport 15cm round hatch)

Save some money with these hatch covers. Each consists of two parts: a rigid flange ring that mounts to the deck of your boat, and a softer "rubbery" cover that closes to a water tight fit.

All hatches have 1/8" thick flanges with about 1/4" of space between the top of the flange and the bottom of the cover.

Each cover has a tab with two holes to attach a lanyard, but no lanyard is included.

Note: Two ring options are available - a regular ring and one with an internal collar to accept SeaLect Bags. Here is a picture of the hatch with the red drawstring bag:

Here is the Sea-Lect boilerplate:

Ensure your valuables remain safe, secure, and dry below deck with SEA-LECT Designs kayak hatches, which stand up to the test of time and conditions.

What makes SEA-LECT Designs hatches stand out:

  • Our hatches are made of injection-molded polycarbonate and high-grade rubber for strength and durability. Special UV protection shields against sun damage, and all hatches are sealed with TPU, which provides superior resistance to impact, abrasions and tears regardless of the conditions and weather.
  • Snap-on, snap-off design fits snugly, yet provides easy access.

Will Our Hatches Fit Your Kayak?

Here at SEA-LECT Designs, we manufacture hatches designed to fit the most popular kayak hatch sizes, or the sizes that are often associated with hatches manufactured by Kajak Sport and/or Valley Sea Kayaks. If you boat does not have a hatch designed in these measurement, unfortunately you will need to contact your kayaks original manufacturer to see about a replacement.

HOW TO KNOW IF OUR HATCHES WILL FIT YOUR BOAT

1) Confirm your hatch attaches with an aftermarket, bolt-on and/or glue-on, mounting rim.

The mounting rim is the single most crucial part to ensuring a watertight seal – it provides standardization in sizing. In many instance, especially in the case of many plastic boats, the mounting rim is a molded-in section of the boat, interacting as a single piece with the hull. If this is the case, we’re sorry to say that more often than not our hatches won’t provide a good seal since the lip on these rims are usually too rounded to ‘click’ into place.

2) If you have a bolt-on and/or glue-on rim, find the measurements for the outside of the rim’s lip.

In the hatch descriptions below, we provide the essential measurement to determine if our hatches will fit your boat – simply measure to the outside of the rims lip, and compare (please note, the lip is the portion of the rim that sticks above the kayak, not the area that attaches to the kayak – the rims lip will be slightly narrower than the overall length/width of the hatch).
