Does anyone know what these are?

Hey all,

Bought my Rafiki 37 in January and have been refitting much of it. Came to these (in photo), and am unsure. I thought they were vents for the engine compartment, but they don't vent. Anyone have an idea of what these are?

The are closeable/lockable vents. You can thread them open or closed with the lower handle, and lock them in any position with the toggle nut. Classic hardware
