Just what the dr.ordered

January 24, 2016
I race a vintage mgb gt on enclosed road racing circuits. To get to my fuel cell you have to open the rear hatch. This speeds the process up considerably eliminating the possibility of a latch jamming and not being able to access the fueling port
Pros:
  • Very Strong Yet Flexible
Cons:
  • Wasn't Free Ha Ha
Yes, I recommend this product.

works very well

January 06, 2016
I used these to hold hood down on my 46 chevy rat rod & have done well for the past 4 years until this winter one of the rubbers broke I figger its from the cold and I have them pretty tightly fit but for 6.9o a pair & 4 years of use is no big deal and a great value to me.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Just like the big rigs have.

Needing some hood hold-downs that mounted quickly, we ordered the least-cost alternative. It turns out that these mount quickly, hold well and look great. Sometimes least-cost is best!
Pros:
  • Just the right size
Yes, I recommend this product.

Easy way to go

September 08, 2012
These latches are the easy solution to street rod hood hold down problems. They install quickly without too much alteration to the hood or surrounding areas and operate easily. They also look authentic. After a long while the rubber will break right under the grip but that's to be expected. Simply keep an extra set on hand and the repair can be made very quickly. They are inexpensive and readily available.
Pros:
  • Excellent For Street Rod
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.
