AeroCatch Flush Hood Fastners
The new, aerodynamically efficient and aesthetically styled AeroCatch is setting new standards in panel fixing for the 21st century, providing a wide variety of fixing solutions for competition and racing applications.
The efficient shear pin locking operation was designed after hours of 3D computer modeling. Many prototypes were produced proving all performance criteria had been met including safety, security, functionality, operation, ease of installation, aesthetic styling, and optional key locking.
In a competition setting, securing a vehicles hood is absolutely critical. Failure to secure a vehicles hood can cause catastrophic problems as it would eliminate all driver visibility. Factory hood locking mechanisms simply are not made to withstand extended high speeds or competition use and abuse. Aside from AeroCatchs strength, it is also easy to use. AeroCatch is easy to operate, even with a gloved hand. AeroCatch can be opened with your fingertips, no fiddling with pins like with traditional race hood latches. AeroCatch hood fastners can replace traditional hood pin setups. Installation requires cutting and drilling of hood.
Designed to fix from underneath the panel thereby creating a flush surface. Ideally suited for composite panels. Can be bonded in position so that there are no fasteners visible from the top of the panel
AeroCatch is setting new standards in panel fixing for the 21st century, providing a wide variety of fixing solutions for the Motorsport, Specialist Vehicle, Marine, Transportation and Packaging industries. AeroCatch is most commonly used to secure lightweight carbon fiber hoods or trunks on race vehicles. Their unique latch system allows for a secure and flush fit. AeroCatch hood latches can be used on any carbon fiber or aftermaket racing hood.
