Making a tight attic access door/hatch
What’s a good, reliable way to get an attic hatch held tight against the weather stripping?
The existing attic hatches in my house have those hook and eyelet screws (think old-timey screen door latch), but they don’t hold reliably, and attempts to reposition them have been unsuccessful because they’re so imprecise. There must be some kind of hardware solution here. I don’t need something that releases quickly, since it’s an unconditioned knee wall attic.
