View Full Version : center locker door issue

04-12-2010, 01:58 PM
When I fill my center locker bag the door always pops open and the kids always hurt thier feet on the door. anyone got any suggestions as how to deal with the door to the center locker.

I was thinking of getting that center cushion for the bow, Ive seen it on some of the lsv but I just have the outback V. Not sure if I can get it for my boat or if it would even come down far enough to cover the entire center locker.

Any ideas???

oh and I upgraded to the gravity games center locker back 1180 lbs so now it really pops up.:mad:

I just hit the "empty" for a few seconds as soon as I start to see it lift. Then push it back down with my foot.

I'm not sure how we can help then. Even the stock bag is capable of swelling past the limits of the locker and pushing the door up, and you put in a bag 3 times that size. Aside from snapping the door in the open position what can you do? Why not just get another bag for the walkway or add weight under the bow seats?

There's no way around it. It's like stuffing 10 lbs of junk in a 5 lb bag, somethings gotta give. SO you either give up weight or live with a popped door.

shorten it.. put a new hole in it so you can keep the o ring on it..

The only other way to to cut a cover board. Make it out of plastic or something. Cut it to couple inches larger then the ski locker opening. Then slide it in on top of the bag. When the bag is about half full you can position it over the bag and as it fills it will act as a false floor and then the ski door wont pop up.

I mis read when I previously posted.. i though you were referring to the metal pull ring that pops up..

Also, make sure it is Burped.. excess air will do that too.. but, above post referring to putting way bigger in that space could be a big issue..
