Electrical cable hatch

I have a 2004 Gulfstream and so far I have replace the electrical cable hatch three times. the only ones I can seem to find are made very cheaply with plastic hinges the break very easy. I have searched the internet and some are listed as heavy duth but they are just cheap plastic also. Is there a source somewhere that I can purchase a good strong one that will last a few years? Or have some of you found another way to remedy this problem.

Thought I answered this one twice already.

IN one of the forums where you posted. I linked to my suggestion. A fuel door..

These do not have the cut out for the cable to exit when the hatch is closed but you could easily maching such a cut out in and then mount the plastic door to the metal one so you use it's sliding or moving slot cover.

Also, I have such a hatch I use to pass my Cat-5 to the Wi-Fi modem up the flagpole.. It is 8 years old and no tribble at all. Different kind of hinge (Pin type not flex).

I am not so much worried about critters getting in when I am out camping somewhere but when it is in storage. I could always stuff a rag around the cord when it is open. This looks to be the best I have found so far.
