Boating Multi-Tool

July 2019 News

Few tasks on a boat can be as frustrating as trying to open a tightly-sealed deck plate with bare hands. The DPA-4 Deck Plate Key from Beckson Marine is a super-convenient multi-tool that makes loosening screw-out, pry-out and twist-out models fast and effortless.

Approximately 7" long, this versatile key is made from lightweight, high-strength acetal resin for a lifetime of corrosion resistance. It features a pry-out tool on one end. Two nubs on the key's long side function as a spanner wrench for either opening or tightening screw-out and twist-out plates.

An integrated drain plug slot wrench gives the tool even greater capability. This handy opening also facilitates hanging the key in a convenient location.

Its bright yellow, high visibility design guards against loss. The DPA-4 Deck Plate Key from Beckson Marine retails for $6.25.
