    Convertible latch catch and alignment pin guide kit

    I installed the latch catch on both sides, and the drivers side broke the very first time I secured it! Snapped and a chunk went flying. So, I would not recommend these parts. But, I think this is a very poor design. The steel hook should connect to a steel catch. Have had many convertibles and they had solid connections. Bought many parts from you guys and this is the first time I have had a problem. Regards, Kurt P.S. These parts went on one of the neatest 1989 GT convertibles you will ever see. Clean and sano mods.

    convertible top latch rubber and guide kit

    Item works well once holes were drilled for retaining screws. I'm not sure why they are not drilled from the factory. There is a mark where the hole should be but no hole.

    I made it work.

    As described by an earlier post you have to drill holes for the screw for the installation. I did so but was reluctant to do a countersink for the tapered screw that holds it on as this material is pretty thin. The original did have a tapered countersink hole and was no thicker than the replacement part. I used the tapered screws that were on the car, but I may change the screws to a flat head type later. The part for the J hook latch does have an area that shows where to drill. I did not use the guide pin part as mine were still o.k.

    Creaky Vert Top

    I bought this product to quiet the top on my '90 stang. Works great, no more leaks when driving and all noises gone. Thought on installation: be patient and ensure tight, flush fitment with car mounting cavity.

    Latch catch kit

    It was a correct fit, but the plastic needs to be thicker. I installed mine and one side broke the first time I closed the top.

      The kit is made from the same OEM plastic specs so it shouldn't have broken after installing. We can certainly get a replacement shipped right out for you.

    A must have part.

    Great fit but this kit should come with the screws. They are very difficult to find.

    Well...

    Did not come pre drilled, had to drill holes to compensate screws, that were not provided. The pieces fit perfectly but broke immediately after re-closing the top, waste of money
