The Panzerkasematte 405p9 was protected by a Scharten- and Deckenplatte which gave the bunker a low profile and good protection to gun and crew. An artillery observation cupola was integrated in the same bunker being the 663a/b and a SK in Hoek van Holland. One Kasematte remains and is located near St Nazaire.

The covering plate is the only part of the Kasematte visible left.
