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

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.

Rubber hood latch/Great prices!

June 03, 2012
This item was a direct replacement for a broken latch on my motorhome engine cover, I had to replace several during my restoration and found Speedway had the absolute best prices anywhere! I will always shop Speedway now as this motorhome will always need attention having a big block Ford! These latches arrived with the fresh smell of new rubber which means they aren't old and brittle which is a definite plus as these will always need attention as they age.
Pros:
  • Durable
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.
