The Light Rubber Cover (LRC) Hatch series is Kajak Sports latest hatch development (together with the LRC-HT series). Elasticity describes this series most incisively. This cover is made for as an option to replace
their “original” rubber cover. The LRC has good stretch ability to fit easily (and still be water tight) on Plastic rims. It is lighter than the original rubber cover and has more elegant visual surface quality. The lightness can easily be noticed as this hatch really floats! The profile of the LRC-series is identical compared to the “original” rubber covers, so they’ll fit the same rims, however the “original” rubber cover is possible to over stretch. The LRC is more elastic so won’t over stretch. The LRC material is fully UV and weather protected for long use.

HOW TO FIND CORRECT SIZE OF REPLACEMENT COVER
Measure the hatch rim on the kayak
To determinate and ensure the correct hatch size, measure the hatch rim of your kayak.
Hatch rim can be separately made component like it is in the most of the composite kayaks or it can be integrated piece of a kayak deck like it is in the most of the rotomoulded plastic kayaks. The hatch rim outer dimension should be very close to the nominal dimension in order to fit, work and seal well with the hatch cover. Therefore the hatch rim outer dimension is the best and unchangeable dimension to determinate the correct hatch size.
In this case the rim should have a diameter of 209 mm
