            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.

            GREAT product

            I'll be 100 honest, I bought this for the look. I had no clue this would help with hood flutter. I installed a bug/rock deflector and had ALOT of hood flutter. This completely eliminated it. I saw some reviews that said shade of red were not even. Mine were perfect. Matched the red tow hooks perfectly. I will say this. It is a VERY tight fit. Takes a bit of effort to put the latches on now. But I think the effort is worth it.

            Daystar hood latch

            Hood product, simple and easy to install. Heavier duty hardware than OEM

            Eliminated Hood Flutter

            Picked these red accent pieces to help eliminate hood flutter on my 2016 JKU. These were a relatively easy install, and work well to tighten down the hood.

            Looks amazing on my red and black rubicon

            I love that the red matches all my other red details. You only get the red middle part with this not the entire latch but for the price I cant complain. I did upload a picture of them on mine incase anyone reads this and wants to see.

            Gotta wait till the weather is above 70 to install. But they look great.

            Nice finish. Not super easy to install, but once the latches stretch some they are a great fit.

            Shade of red did not match

            Received the latches and the shade of red was different on each one with one being a gloss red and the other a flat red, I will be sending them back

            No more hood flutter!

            These hood latches have taken out all the high speed "flutter" movement of the hood. Work great and look great!
