          Comments about Seasense One-Way Safety Plug:

          We keep our boat on a covered lift and I clean the bilge and engine compartment every other week so I like to pull the plug when I'm doing that. The design of this plug lets me use a srew driver to loosen and tighten it. I can hold a screw driver much better than an open end wrench while I'm leaning over the dock under the boat. I didn't install the one way valve in the transom so I can comment on that, but in theory it sounds like a good idea.

                  Used this to plug the hole where the aerator pump went thru the transom of my fiberglass boat. Pump was broken and letting water in. Used this as a quick/cheap fix. Works great.

                      Hello Tom,

                      Yes. It can be installed on all types of boats and on the outside of the hull. It is very important to seal around ALL of the holes to prevent any water from entering the boat.

                      Thank you,
                      Steve

                    I don't understand how when you screw this in how it would allow water to go out but not come in,I had one of these for years and never had the courage to install it.

                      This drain fitting and plug has a built in scupper so if you forget to install the drain plug, or choose to use it as a scupper, it will let the water out of the bilge but not allow water to enter. If you look closely at the picture on the web you can see the scupper ball inside the part that mounts to the boat.

                      Hello Ed,

                      Yes. Either screw will work in the installation. Please make sure to use a good sealant around the plug and each screw hole to prevent any water leakage.

                      Thank you,

                      The current thru hull/ female socket has to be removed and replaced with the supplied thru hull/ female socket.

                  • Q:

                    I have to install this inside the boat in the middle.
                    Like a Mastercraft.
                    Is this hardware like a check valve one direction.
                    Is this meant to be installed outside the boat or inside?
