Comments about Screw in Deck Plate, 6", Black:
The deck plate leaked, but we added just a touch of silicone gel on the o ring and did not leak anymore. With wet hands it is very difficult to open, so we added a half an inch wooden handle and that allows to open and close easily.
It is a good product. If the ring is water repellent lubricated, it works just fine.
