The Armstrong Watertight Compression Deck Plate offers the boat manufacturer an alternative to the industry's standard hatch cover.  The Armstrong Deck Plate will reduce boat manufacturing costs and replace the outdated "pie-eye" with a stronger, better looking access cover.  


Compare the impressive advantages of Armstrong:


  • Watertight - Completely seals against water intrusion.
  • One-piece Unit - No trim ring, fasteners, or sealant.
  • Ease of use - A turn of the "T" handle releases or secures the deck plate - No additional tools or effort needed to open or close; simply finger tighten or release.
  • Patented design loads the deck plate at the center, distribution sealing pressure uniformly at the seal ring - No uneven pressure to cause seals to break..


  • Watertight - Reduce the number of warranty claims and processing time by customer service staff, as well as the cost of replacement parts.
  • One-piece Unit - Reduce manufacturing time.  Cut the hole, slip the Deck Plate in place and tighten the "T" handle by hand.
  • Real Savings in Material Costs - No additional purchase of screws and caulking compounds are required for installation, and no clean-up.
  • No lost, broken, or dirty parts - Install your Deck Plate during final inspection at the end of the production line.

Armstrong's Watertight Compression Deck Plate is 
available in 6, 8, and 10-inch round models, 
plus a 10 X 20-inch rectangular model.
