Malibu Kayaks Mini X Hatch


I just got a new Malibu Kayaks Mini X and I absolutley love it! Only problem is after one use the center hatch will not close now. I sprayed it down right after use in brackish water, cleaned all debris from tract, made sure the holes where the locking mechanism engages are clear and it just will not seal. I cannot close it all the way down flush so the locking system will not turn into place. Has anyone else had a problem similar to this? Any suggestions would b e greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Did you make sure that the basket inside the center hatch is set in there properly? If it’s not, the hatch would not close all the way.
