I'm not sure what you're talking about here. Where would this hasp be located? I don't think I have this, but I could be wrong.

The "hasp" I'm refering to is the hinged metal bar with a slot in it that fits over a pad eye so you can position a pad lock. If you have a padlock on your aft cabin, then it was originally positioned with one part of the hasp on the companionway slide and the other half on the top crib board or adjacent location. If the height of your slide has been altered, then the two parts of the lock hasp would not line-up
'good luck with your project!
