MSW’s Take: Simplify and add lightness. These hood pins adhere to that. Their simplicity makes them a quick install, especially convenient for trackside repairs that aren’t possible with Aerocatches or other more complicated designs.
The stainless steel hood pins are simple and effective. They have held up in serious accidents that would break aluminum latches, keeping the hood down and not obstructing the driver’s viability.
The captive design of the pin means no lost pins or unnecessary lanyards.
