This hood latch is a new, aftermarket replacement part. It is just what you need to repair or replace a bent or defective hood latch and bring back the safety and integrity of a safely latched hood.

If, traveling down the highway, the hood latch fails and the safety latch lets go, the hood can actually fly off the vehicle posing a serious hazard to you and anyone behind you. So don't hesitate to replace a questionable hood latch and keep your vehicle safe.

This hood latch has the following specifications:

  • Replaces dealer part numbers: 53510-02020, 5351002020
  • Mounts to radiator support
  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Not correct for models that came equipped with a Factory Installed Alarm

The hood latch makes a great replacement and has good cost saving over a dealer hood catch.

Note:

It is necessary to reuse your original hardware, as new hardware is not included with this item.

Better off getting this part from junkyard
This part did not do what I wanted it to, after installing it, hood was stuck closed, I replaced this part with one from a junkyard car. If you compare this part to a stock Toyota latch, the latch that Toyota sold was thicker metal, in my opinion better springs. This part fits the car, maybe I got a bad one.
