      Been away for a few days so sorry this is late. The escape hatch actually
      came in three different styles. The original is the one that everyone else
      has refered to, with the four locking rods. The Ram nad a similar hatch but
      as the floor was thicker at this point than on a Sherman (1" instead of
      1/2"), the lugs that supported the pins stood further away from the hatch
      casting. The final design was for the ultimate series tanks and this used a
      simple locking system of an over centre latch on one side of the hatch to
      release it . The M10 would not have been fitted with this hatch.
