Shown painted black, comes silver zinc coated.

Altman Easy Hood Latch for the F-100. It takes the reliability and function of our door latches and moves it to the hood. This time.........NO CUTTING!! Our latch kit is a direct bolt-in kit. No cuts, no welding necessary. It does away with the need for a safety catch and comes with a formed plate to cover the hole left by the original safety catch. The original hood mounted "striker bolt" is replaced by our newly designed striker bolt with nylon sleeve
