The AeroCatch is a new twist on the old hood pin concept. Hidden inside the modern, low-profile housing is a plated steel clevis pin which engages an M10x1.5 hood pin. The hood pin and clevis pin are fully enclosed and protected by the aerodynamic thermoplastic housing.

The AeroCatch Xtreme uses a steel hood pin for added strength over the original AeroCatch, which uses an aluminum hood pin. The Xtreme series is designed specifically for rally and off-road racing. The Xtreme series is overkill for road racing.

Using the AeroCatch is simple -- even simpler than using conventional hood pins!
To close: Simply lower the actuating lever which is built into the housing. You don't have to line up the clevis pin with the hole in the hood pin. You can even do it blindfolded with one hand behind your back! Press down on the actuating lever to engage the secondary latch and prevent accidental opening. Even if the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood pin is still engaged!
To open: Push on the secondary latch button (if engaged) and lift the actuating lever. The pin is captured inside the housing, so you don't have to keep track of the pins when they are disengaged. The actuating lever gives a clear visual indicator of the status of the pin (disengaged, engaged, or latched).

The AeroCatch can be used in place of hood pins on hoods or trunk lids, or as a door latch. Minor modifications to the housing will also allow it to be used on panels which hinge, angle, or slide in place. The hood pin can be perpendicular to the panel, parallel to it, or at any other angle in between.

The "Plus Flush" design mounts from the top of the panel, with an exposed 6-bolt flange (2 3/4" W x 5" L x 3/32" thick) that sits on top of the panel. The flange covers the edges of the cutout, so your cutting does not need to be very accurate. This Locking version has an additional key lock for extra security (the secondary lock must be engaged for the key lock to be effective). The black housing accepts paint if desired. Sold in pairs.

Hint: Apply a piece of contrasting tape or paint to the secondary latch button to make it easier to find!

We also stock the original Plus Flush Mount AeroCatch (Part No. 3038-001) for road racing applications.
