Hi Daniel, I have an inherited teardrop with the same problem and thought this looked like an elegant solution for mine too. I wasn’t involved in the build at all, so maybe this is a dumb question, but did you use the drill-fill-drill method even with the holes so close together?
Quick review…I posted this once I had the hatch mounted, but with no testing. I was really nervous that this looked like it was going to leak bad….
After finishing and using (including some rain) it stays dry. It doesn’t look totally right, since the gap is pretty big. But now that I see how it all works, its fine. I would not add the clasps (to mine) since it works and doesn’t leak.
Thanks again for the thoughts …this forum is really valuable for getting a sense of if things are okay, or are going to be an issue.
