HELP ...Inspection Port on a 24 inch Polylok Cover ???

Ok got 12" High x 24" round risers (Polylok) and 24" covers (Polylok) over a 1500 gallon 2 compartment Rectangular concrete septic tank.... One lid covers the intake baffle from the house the other covers the outlet with a Polylok PL 122 filter.. Sooo if I want to do an inspection on intake baffle or service the filter ( which clogged recently) you gotta take all 8 screws out of the lid do your thing then line the dang thing up again so the screws go in those little holes - A real PITA .. Question is does ANYONE make a lid with an easy removable 6" + - inspection port ??? Any ideas to make my own set up ie cut a hole attach a screw cap Somehow... Crazy that the company that made the tank has a inconvient set up...

Really, how often are you removing the hatches on your septic tank? I can have all the screws removed from mine in less than a minute. And, it's not a precision fit to reinstall them so it too goes very quickly. Of course I cheat and use a cordless drill.

I've got three (3) of those PolyLok Covers over my tank:

and you know what, even though they gave me a dozen or so stainless steel screws, I've survived many years now without screwing any of them in.

The wind hasn't lifted any of the covers, and the lawnmower goes right by . . . . and no one has even tried to break in !

Just trying to make life easier... The filter needs to be serviced / looked at periodically twice a year

You MUST secure the lids in place so it can't be easily opened without tools. If anyone opens the lid and falls in will suffocate and you will be held liable due to negligence.
