        Fits as expected

        Item as described. Much tighter fit over factory, nice red accent to hood latches. Priced right for what it is and does the job as I wasn’t looking to spend a lot on latches. Went 80mph on Highway for 30 min and no hood flutter

        Really like these used different method to install

        These are great. Instead of the following the directions they provided, I cut off factory rubber with shears to expose the pins and took bolt cutters the pins. The bolt cutters crack the plastic housing and you can pull them out easily. No vice needed.

        Best Bang for the buck

        Great price for an upgrade to end the dreaded hood flutter. Simple install and fit. You will need to apply a bit more muscle when fastening the new latches the first time, but you'll be happy with the results. Does the job and doesn't empty the bank.

        4 2018 Wrangler - Sprengkommando

        Nice Litte Touch

        These latch upgrades are a cool little red accessory to break up the black latch assembly. Putting them on was a pain and the directions given did not work. They say to unbolt the bottom latch holder, but I could not get a wrench or socket to get the nuts off. I had to use a Dremel tool to cut the head of the part that the new red rubber piece attaches to the latch part attached to the hood (confused? me too.) Following the instructions to use a vice to crush the other end worked, since it was free of the Jeep. The new bolts that screw together to attach rubber straps work great. The new straps are a very tight fit.

        5 2013 Rubicon - Thetaorunner

        Stopped hood flutter and added a nice touch of Red

        I bought these to stop the hood flutter and add some more red accents to my 2013 Rubicon. Once you have the right tools (two locking pliers to get the stock pins out) it’s an easy 15 minute install. I watched a YouTube video first. The color is close to the red tow hooks on my Rubicon and I’m happy with the product.

        Great Accent

        Nice red accent to the latches, worth the purchase. Used Armor Alll on the existing black pieces. Looks like new. Took about an hour, hardest part was breaking the old bolts.
