This beautiful Mercury Cougar had traditional hoodpins installed prior to the mini latch installation. The original base plates were retained and the mini Quik-Latches were installed over the base plates. Below are pictures of the completed Quik-Latch installation.
Now the owner of this car no longer has to worry about the hood pin lanyards scratching the paint. In addition, the driver never needs to worry about forgetting to install the pins after closing the hood.
Note: The mini Quik-Latches are being used as hood stabilizers in conjunction with an OEM hood latch on this application.
