Trim-Lok, Inc. Rubber Seal featured in Boating Magazine’s Weekend Workbook!


Buena Park, CA, November 11, 2014 – Trim-Lok, Inc. recently met with Jim Hendrix, writer of Boating magazine’s Weekend Workbook to discuss adding and replacing weather seals to boat hatches.  Installing the correct rubber seal on your boat hatch is essential to keep your bilge and lockers dry.


Dan Whitener, Trim-Lok’s Marketing Director, worked with Jim to install a new rubber seal on a 1986 bilge hatch.  The 4 easy steps outlined in the article show how to correctly select and measure for the right seal, how to properly clean the surface and finally how to install the seal.   In this particular application, the rubber seal used is Trim-Lok part number X1153 with optional 3M pressure sensitive adhesive.  Along with a few quick tips and a handy list of tools and supplies needed, Weekend Workbook does an excellent job of explaining this do-it-yourself weekend boat project.
