    Hood latches for 300x?

    Tired of my hood opening when hitting really rough water. Have had it happen a few times and its scary! Yesterday could have been real bad if my upper tray was not in. The bow took a huge wave after the hood opened and filled the top tray full of water. i dont want to use duct tape on the hood looking for latches anyone have a link? Thanks

    It's a simple case of adjusting the post tighter ,

    I have never had my hood pop open ever. And been in 12ft at. 3 sec. Water you can use rubber strap if you want. But I'm betting it's just the adjustment or a bad latch.

    Put some weather stripping around the lip of the Bucket. I have this on my '07 and '11. Never have this problem. It holds it in enough of a bind to not pop loose and keeps all water out of the bucket.

    correct GL the same foam strip that is under the bucket, purchase similar tape for the top section, to be honest i dont know why everyone doesnt do this, it totally seals the front bucket to make it 100% water proof.
