Bonnet (Hood) Safety Catch
The Morris Minor bonnet assembly is very heavy and has a positive latching mechanism. However. the aerodynamics of the car are such that if for any reason the main catch springs open you will very quickly find the bonnet in your windshield. The least that will happen is a broken windshield, bent hood and broken hinges! This safety catch is cast material and is easily broken. A simple pin holds it in place and also makes it easy to replace. A good item to purchase along with the new catch is a the return spring to make certain the catch does function properly.
