Chart Table / Hatch Spring
This clever device is used for holding hatches open. You simply lift the hatch cover and let go. The spring snaps straight and holds the lid up without any effort on your part. To close the hatch, simply bend the spring into a "U" shape while closing the lid. The spring will be ready the next time you open the hatch. It has an internal wire that prevents the spring from being over-extended during normal use. Not recommended for applications where hatch will scoop wind while boat is underway and over-extend spring.
222mm long. Simply to operate, easy to install, maintenance free. Made from stainless steel.
