Replace those worn out factory hood catches with a new set of Stainless Steel or Black powdercoated catches. No drilling required, Sold in pairs.
What should have been a 10 min install took nearly 4 hours.. the pins would not lune up with the lock holes. They give you washers to raise the pins but I ueed them to extend the locks on the hood. Also if you tighten the nuts for the lock too tightly, it pulls the bolts out of the lock. But they made it so you can screw them back in with an alan wrench..
My latches lasted only two Indiana winter seasons. The internal threads on the right latch wore out with lite rust and popped off. All my miles are road miles and my 99 TJ is exceptionally clean. I bought these due to the area i work in and wanted to secure my engine compartment.
Hi, I already own these hood catches and they are freaking awesome! Unfortunately, the rubber pieces are cracking/splitting; is there any why to just replace the rubber pieces? Thank you, in advance!

Hi tbird The only thing we have for that is the DAYKJ09145BK, not sure if they will fit the S/B as they are designed to fit the stock factory catch. Thanks

need height from bottom plate where it bolts to fender to where hook latches. Thx, Hal
Asked by Hal - old car restorer from Yorktown, Va on
Closed - the distance between the base and the hook is 3-1/4 inches. You can pull the hook to about 4 inches when hooking up to the clasp. I hope this information is helpful. Thanks!
