Review on 🔒 Premium Topfire Hood Latches: Easy Install Aluminum Hood Catch for Jeep Wrangler JK, JKU Rubicon Sahara Sport 2007-2018 (Matte Black, 1 Pair) by Jake Hill

Revainrating 5 out of 5

Excellent external accessory latch

Nice and heavy. I just installed them. It took me about an hour. I didn't have a ratchet or extensions to fit in the small gap to install the bottom section screw. I'll take the grill. Only took out the top black fasteners and was able to pull the front grille panel far enough to access that bottom screw. I used an open end wrench to loosen the bolt. During installation I applied a piece of tape to secure the new screw. tape on one side. So I can start unscrewing the hex bolt. It's tight but manageable. You can also use a thread lock just in case. The instructions were simple pictures. You must disassemble the bottom hinge to access the bottom section screw. It's very easy. I hope that makes sense. But you will find that there are 3 Allen keys in the kit, each with a different size. So everything is included to install it. As said, the bottom assembly and reaching the bottom nut on the side of the jeep is the trickiest part. After installation, it was very noticeable that the bonnet began to close more tightly. I can't imagine the hood flapping with these things.

Pros
  • Excellent performance
Cons
  • Doubtful
