Finally! Seadog has quarter-turn deck plates back in production. So far, we now have the 4", 6" and 8" sizes in black and white. They are easy to open, easy to close, and they click when they are fully shut. You don't have to screw and screw and worry about crossing the threads. One fourth turn is all that is required to close. The black O-ring makes them watertight. Note: Avoid contact with acetone or strong solvents.

Sea-Dog Line Quarter-Turn Deck Plate is UV stabilized and features a new locking system that prevents over tightening, jamming and cross threading. Easy to open and close. A specially engineered lubricated gasket is used in conjunction with a knife edge for a leak tested seal.

We have found that, especially when quarter turn deckplates are installed in hard to access places, their function can be greatly enhanced by simply adding a wood handle to the surface of the cover. Shown here are the ones we put on the Rifleman we built. They are Mahogany - about 3.4" high by 2" by 4" long. Two 1" ss screws and large washers hold them in place. We did not use glue, but that would probably have been a good idea.

Feedback:

Hi Chuck - Houdini is coming right along. If you've time, take a look.

I hope I can take it to some of the events next summer. I just kinda followed them from afar this year.

I wanted to say the large quarter turn deck plates are very nice but I don't think I could open them without a handle. I made the mistake of snapping one shut when you first sent them and I had to make the handle to open it. I think the lubrication you suggest will help greatly. Pictures attached.
