Hood loops provide a lashing point anywhere under the hood that you can find a bolting point.
Perfect for cars or trucks without frame attachments under the front of the vehicle. Easy to install, just open the car hood and where the hood sits will be a couple of bolts that you can remove, attach the hood loops, re-tighten the bolts letting the loops hang out the side of the vehicle. I tuck mine back in the hood when I'm not using them.
Works great for about a year then they started fraying. I ordered a new set, I just replace mine yearly.
The idea is great, however, the material in mine wasn't up to the task and it separated around the grommet. Placing a stitch near the grommet would likely take some load off the lower part of the strap and reduce product failures.
The Yak-Gear Hood Loops are a great idea! Solved the problem of trying to find a place to tie down the front of my Kayak to a vehicle. Simple design and the Yak-Gear product appears to be well built using a heavy material...
