The hatch looks clean. The latches seal well however the recesses in the latch hold water . Once the water dries up the latch is dirty. The Hatch Mounting surface must be perfectly flat and rigid or the hatch cover will not seal well.Once mounted it does feel sturdy under foot...The lid is removable which is nice depending on the installation.Overall a good buy for the money

I have spoken once to a Tempress Customer service agent who sent us new gaskets to replace the non-existent ones the hatches were originally (not) shipped with. They were installed, but did not stop the leak issues. Subsequent phone calls and emails for help have not been answered. Could not recommend these, as they leak badly in an average rainstorm.

            Comments about Access Hatches with Slam or Cam Latches:

            Use these (two)for access to my two battery compartments. When the hinge on one of the originals on my boat snapped, I purchased a replacement. On checking out at Westmarine, a store rep. offered that the screw holes on this might be a 1/4" out of alignment with the holes on the original. Not wanting to start drilling holes,this worried me. To my great satisfaction everything lined up perfectly with the original and gave me a waterproof seal.

              Comments about Access Hatches with Slam or Cam Latches:

              We used 4 of these on a re-fit job in two different sizes. Unfortunately, all of the them leak in a rain downpour with one more than the others, The recessed handles work OK, but the recesses trap water and dirt that is hard to remove. Deck hatches that won't even keep a hard rain out are pretty useless!

                  Strongest, best designed, highest quality, and nicest looking access hatch I have seen in 25 years of boating. I use them in a floor mount configuration for walking on.

                  Comments about Access Hatches with Slam or Cam Latches:

                  We are using for under dash access on Fly Bridge.
                  Very easy to mount and looks good.
                  Because of the slight curve to the bulkhead, we needed fab a gasket to keep mount ring flat.
                  I read in an earlier comment that the door is removable but haven't figured that out yet.
                  Latch seems sturdy.

                  I needed to replace one of the battgery hatch covers on my 2005 Trophy Walkaround model 2002. This was an exact replacement. Screw holes line up with the existing holes and the appearance is identical.
