Help Identify Deck Plate / Inspection Port

I would like some help identifing a deterioratind deck plate. I would like to pop in a replacement without making an epoxy project out of it. So far I have not been able to find one. The ID is 5.25ʺ and the diameter at the screws is 6.1ʺ. Can anyone identify this?

Re: Help Identify Deck Plate / Inspection Port

Are you hoping to find a new cap that fits the old ring, or replace the whole thing?

They come in pretty standard sizes, just measure it, and look for the closest match. Worst case, you might have to get the next size up, and cut the hole to fit the new deck plate. There shouldn't be any epoxy jobs needed.

There are a few to choose HERE to start with!

Google is your friend!

I was hoping to replace it without drilling, cutting, or filling. This does not appear to be an option.
