      Functional and Attractive. The Smittybilt Hood Catch Kit - Black contains two catches that latch your Wrangler YJ's hood securely to stop that annoying rattling noise associated with a loose hood. What's more, the pair looks rugged in black and helps your Jeep stand out in a crowd.

      Steel Construction. The Hood Catches are crafted from quality stainless steel, a material that is well-known for its strength and anti-corrosive properties. A black powder coat finish provides extra rust resistance and safeguards against chips or scratches for longer-lasting good looks.

      Double Warranty Coverage. Two manufacturer warranties come with your Black Hood Catch Kit. A limited lifetime warranty protects against any defects in the stainless steel, while the powder coat finish has a 5 year or 100,000 mile warranty (whichever happens first). Please read the Smittybilt warranty in full.

      No Drill Needed. You won't have to get out your drill to install these Hood Catches. They install easily using the included bolts and other hardware.

      Application. The Smittybilt Hood Catch Kit - Black is made to fit all 1987-1995 Jeep Wrangler YJs.

        Great for the money!

        Easy to install. Fit and finish is very nice. Good replacement for old, worn out hood catches.

        Nice quality replacement latches

        It’s a nice latch. Nicer than most I’ve seen at local Off-road/Jeep shops. You won’t be disappointed. Maybe not the right forum, so my apologies if I offend anyone, but ET is sending too many emails for my taste. Morris and Quadratec don’t seem to have this problem. ET, I don’t want to unsubscribe, but I don’t want emails everyday. Once a week is plenty. Thanks.

        1 1991 Wrangler - StephenS


        These hood latches are made from cheap materials the metal is thin, and the springs are weak. I'll be repainting my OEM ones and throwing these in the trash. All the 5 star reviews must be coming from mall crawlers lol.
