STRENGTH, SIMPLICITY and SECURITY
The ultimate in strength and simplicity, Baier’s original patented strongback system has only two moving parts to secure the hatch cover to the deck. It is superior to other more complicated hatch closure systems in that it is simpler, stronger, more reliably watertight, infinitely adjustable from topside, and more easily serviced (parts are readily available and replaced in the field). Importantly, the recessed hex centerbolt and grab handles offer no snags for nets, lines or hardware.
