jack, last I checked the ORC called for hatchboard restraints that could be operated from inside or outside the cabin, which makes very good sense since you don't want to trap crew below--or exclude them. Eyebolts just wouldn't do it.

Fastpins through the track and board, with a "punch" to push them out from the wrong side, would. But that's kinda kludgy too.
