Features & Details

  • Resolves Hood Flutter and Hop

Hood Performance. Hit the back roads or the highway without worry by eliminating hood flutter or hopping commonly found with your Wrangler's factory set up. Off Road Only's Hop-Stopper integrates with your stock hood hook to secure your hood front and center without the use of aftermarket hood latches or turn buckles to create an improved driving experience.

Functionality. Once installed the Hop-Stopper mechanism operates with the flip of a switch easily accessed through your factory grille. It fully secures the hood hook when engaged and completely eliminates fluttering and hopping on or off road.

Rugged Construction. Crafted from stainless steel the Hop-Stopper is designed to provide long lasting hood retention by resisting corrosion and wear. All hardware is zinc coated to prevent weak links in the easy to use mechanism.
Installation. Getting to a better driving state only requires drilling two 1/4 inch holes. Assembly of the Hop-Stopper takes seconds and Off Road Only provides a solid template fixture for a perfect installation that will take less than 30 minutes of your day.

Application. The Off Road Only Hop Stopper Hood Latch System is specifically designed for use on 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK and JK Unlimited models and works with factory hoods as well as most aftermarket hood options.

      Will this work w/grille inserts? Got a 2017 Recon 7mm holes on the inserts want to see how I could reach the latch.

      • TheHop Stopper Hood Latch System would interfere with grille inserts, since you need to access the switch through the grille opening.

          Hop Stopper is awesome

          The Hop Stopper works exactly as advertised and I didn't need to spend over $100 for new latches! It was an easy install and I highly recommend it!!

          Works Great! Zero Hood Flutter

          I would have given it 5 stars but unlocking the hood can be tricky, but it's well worth the investment to keep the hood from fluttering. Zero Hood Flutter Took about an hour to install.

          Great hood stopper!

          I bought this item because my hood was moving all around. After I put it on my hood didn't move at all! Love it!

          does the trick

          This stopped the hood flutter and was very easy to install. As an added bonus, it also works as an anti-theft system. The dealership was doing some work and had to call me to figure out how to open the hood. HAHAHA

          No hoppa here

          Works just as described. Super easy install. No hood flutter whatsoever. It made me too nervous on windy days especially when a semi passed. I liked the oem look so I didn't want the aluminum latches. This was perfect for me.

          Great product!

          Product works great, holds hood down tight. The part fits together nicely and is easy to install. Just have a good METAL 1/4" drill bit for the install.
