Hood Latching Kit, Plain, Complete

Fits: 1953-56 Ford F-100 Trucks (Each truck takes 1)

Part Number: 92015-SS

Sorry, this item is no longer available. See notes and alternate parts below.

A component of this kit is out of stock and being back ordered.
Back ordered items can still be ordered and are automatically shipped when they come in.

Fits all sizes of 1953-56 F-series Trucks.
All parts are made in the USA by Mid Fifty F-100 Parts. The hood center latch is the short handle version, unlike the longer handle version that was imported years ago for only 56, this center latch fits all 4 years, and is made completely of Stainless steel. The safety latch, was imported in plated steel, now made here in Stainless steel. All other parts also made in USA and available in Stainless or Chrome. Even the spring is stainless. Kit is available in plain finish, or Polished. All pieces are available separately as well. The Center latch is very important in alignment of the hood and fenders. Many times a hood will creep up in the back while driving, the center latch is likely the culprit, a little adjusting of this latch and everything settles down and stays there. Safety latches are of course important, especially with this large umbrella of a hood. Both items experience striking type wear which is why I made them in stainless, I just hate chipped paint on things like this. We do not suggest using a safety latch on hoods that have been converted with hood tilt kits as they impede the forward movement necessary to clear and lift. Always use the short handle center latch on 1953-4 as long handle version will catch on radiator valance and lock it down, very difficult fix.
