Looks like an ordinary padeye would do the job.

That doesn't look like a sliding hatch. Just the same, deadbolts on the inside and a padeye from the hatchboard to the hatch would work.

Thanks fellas, Mike the hatch lifts up and slides on an ss tube, instead of rails. it looks like the pad eye is the way to go.
cheers paul.
