Good looking, installs easily, works great, and costs little. A perfect product.

Installed on my old 2002 Honda Civic Coupe that I've been using a pair of pliers to open the hood on for years. I don't know why I didn't do this sooner.I bought the red version and it looks great, and is made of nice solid metal with 2 set screws to secure it to the shaft of the hood release cable.Installation took me about 15 minutes, with the bulk of that time being spent removing the body panel and, importantly, dremeling away the old plastic around the metal rod this attaches to. That's a required step, it would be pretty difficult to do without power tools, so make sure you have some sort of tool that can cut the plastic sheathing off. The hood open pull lever on my car takes about double the intended force to use, so I was worried the set screws wouldn't be enough to hold it in place, but it definitely is.In other words, this is just a great product. It looks even better than the original, fits perfectly and is high quality.

  • Easy to install, didn’t come with instructions. So far so goodFit my 2001 Honda Civic
  • May not be compatible with other aftermarket hood accessories
