ACK Review: This is such a simple item that should be under the hood of every car to attach your bow and stern tie downs. Your provided a solid point of contact with a pair of ACK hood loops which will protect your paint job from getting all scratched up.

Good way to go. Better than crawling under your car. And you can see the hook through the loops while you're driving so you have the peace of mind from seeing that bow and stern tie- downs are secure. You may have to get longer screws than the ones you remove because the brass grommet in the hood loops adds about 1/4" to the needed screw length. I got screws that were 1/2" longer. Just make sure you use the same size and threads per inch and use a flat washer between the screw head and the top of the brass grommet. I had to get 1/2" longer metric screws at Home Depot. I even mounted a couple of extra hood loops under the hood in front. I also put one on each of the two trunk latch bolts for the stern tie-down.

I anchored the Hood Loops under the engine hood and in my trunk to help stabilize my kayak. Used a long strap looped around the kayak through the straps. They are just what I needed. Easy to install and stay out of the way when not in use.

These hood loops shouldn't be just called hood loops. We also put a pair on the rear under the back bumper. They work like a charm and make canoe hauling so very easy.

EXCELLENT product. Highly recommended. I have a Nissan Frontier and I found two unused tapped holes on the top of the mounting bracket for the radiator left and right of the hood latch. I bolted the loops on with some big washers - took just a few minutes. They work perfect for my two kayaks. I put them back behind the grill when I'm not using them.

Works as intended. Only drawback is the potential wind noise the band can make.

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.
