      Comments about Hatch Arms:

      Boat is 11 years old, Orig spring rusted (broke) at 8 years. Bought replacement at West Marine. Replacement rusted (broke) in 3 years. Hope most recent replacement lasts longer.

      Replacement spring matches original exactly. Just remove & replace 4 screws and you're back in business.

      Comments about Hatch Arms:

      Your prices on most items are outragous. The stainless hardware prices are obscene. If you check my buying at your store it has gone down by about 90%.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Product good prices stupid.

                Comments about Hatch Arms:

                Unlike other similar springs, this one is far more effective in raising the hatch. Stop watch testing revealed it raised the hatch 3/10ths of a second more rapidly than the spring it replaced and even closed the hatch on it's own when danger approached.

                    Comments about Hatch Arms:

                    As a 24 year experienced boater, you come across poor and good quality products. This product is exceptional. We have some on our boat and decided to install one on our new fish tank lid to keep it open. The lid is very heavy and we are very happy how much easier this item has made our daily lives. It was simple to install, keeps the lid open and releases in a split second. Best of all you know the heavy lid won't fall on your head while you are working under it. I am already recommending it to other Aquarium hobbyists.

                      spring support works ok to keep rear storage locker cover open. The cable inside the spring meant to limit the open length busted after several uses. It is not really an issue for me in my application but don't relay on the limiting cable alone if your application truly needs the open range of the supported item to be limited.
