The friction lever's internal spring helps to counterbalance the weight of the hatch lid. The friction it provides adds some stability to the lid when the hatch is open. The friction is adjustable by way of the allen head fastener on the axis of the pivot. The spring tension is not adjustable.

Over time the friction lever may loose it's ability to hold the lid due to a combination fatigue of the spring and wear to the friction surfaces.

2) When you order a special order item it sets off a chain of events like Willie Wonka in the chocolate factory. Once you turn the valve the chocolate is coming down the pipe. If you then decide you want caramel, the chocolate is still going to come out of the pipe. We can't put the Chocolate back in the pipe, so someone is going to have to eat it, and it's not going to be us! Your order can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into caramel, so please order carefully the first time! Lewmar Size 10 Ocean
