Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Door Latches, Hood Hinges, Cable Releases & More

Custom hood hinges, cable releases and hot rod latches are small components, so it's only natural that you may have some questions. Here are some of the more common questions we come across regarding our replacement parts.

What Types of Hot Rod Latches Do You Sell?

Hot rod latches from Watson's StreetWorks are available for several different areas of your ride. Our most commonly requested components are hot rod door latches for driver and passenger side doors, but we also sell custom hood latches and trunk latches for your convenience.

How Do I Know My Hood Hinges Are Properly Installed?

When your custom hood hinges are properly installed, secured and aligned, your hood should be able to open and close effortlessly. When shut, the gaps should be straight and even, and the hood panel will sit level on each side. Additionally, your hood hinges should allow the hood to stay raised at the exact point you leave it once opened. Detailed instructions come with every purchase for precise and proper installation.

How Do Cable Releases Work?

Cable releases generally serve to actuate the deck lid latch assembly on your ride. When you pull a cable release, your trunk or hood will pop open whether the key is in the ignition or not. The cable puts tension on the latch mechanism when one pulls the release lever. When let go, the spring tension in the latch will return the lever to its original position and reset.
