Bonnet Latches - list of options

Postby AUS Sahara » Sun Jan 22, 2012 1:19 am

Hi All,

I thought I'd start a list of options for certain items we have all used during our builds - starting with Bonnet Latches.

You can use the generic rubber ones but many of us have found alternatives, pls list them when you come up with new options:
Cheers

Well I used the rubber latch and metal bracket that were used on the Jeep Wrangler from late 90's to mid 2000's to good effect.

I used Aerocatches, see pic below.

More secure plus you can use pressurised gas struts to make opening of Bonnet easier.

I was wondering if two of the standard bonnet catches could be used, one either side for stability. Shouldn't be too difficult to arrange the cabling but I was wondering how they could be mounted to the underside of the bonnet/wing assy. Fairly secure and cheap!

Used the Aerocatch plus flush locking (120-2100). I welded some triangle plates to the bulkhead top corners to mount the pins on.
