The Wilderness Systems Kayak Konsole has become an immediate classic. New hinged hatch with built in cam levers creates a dry seal. Simply flick the recessed levers and the hatch pivots open on a stout hinge, providing easy unhindered access to contents. The lid stays attached to the Konsole, no needing one hand for the hatch cover and the other for everything else. To close, flip hatch lid down and flick the cams to closed position. Universal cup holders accommodate everything from travel mugs to 32 oz bottles. Recessed mounting surfaces for rod holder mounts and a mesh pocket conclude the generous list of features. Will fit most recreational kayak cockpits and secures via bungee cord under the rim coaming.
Works well for its intended use, though I had to trim and round the bottom rear edge to keep from scraping my knees when getting into or out of the cockpit. The cockpit cover does not fit nicely with the Konsole installed, so I have to remove it before putting the cover on.
This is the most amazing accessory for kayak's. Old or new kayak's I would highly recommend adding this accessory.
