Wilderness Systems replacement Orbix 8″ Round hatch kit suited to Wilderness Systems kayaks made after 2014 (Originally fitted with Orbix hatches).
May also be used as a new custom hatch for any make and model of kayak with appropriate deck space.
Part Number: 9800795
This model has an interlock groove and channel which is secured with a cam lever giving an excellent seal. It is possible to fit a locking pin or small lock to the cam lever to prevent accidental opening. An integrated thick gasket enables it to fit to decks without leaking
This differs from the previous model in size and fit but also in the method of sealing. The sizing of the previous model (fitted prior to kayaks prior to 2015) is different enough to make either model unsuitable for replacing the other.
Should you not know the model you have the best way to tell the difference is with the lid closed. the Pre 2015 model the screw holes for the rim to the kayak deck are visible, this model does not (see images for current model). The Pre 2015 also has a foam gasket seal to ensure the hatch is watertight rather than the large groove visible in this model.
