    Why is LASFIT stealth hood lock so much better?

     1. Anti-Theft Hood Lock - Keep The Jeep Under-Hood Investments Safer.

    How to improve jeep security is not only a common concern for all Jeep owners, but Lasfit also hopes to offer some help. It is a common finding that many Jeep owners are looking for some advice to the theft problem, but always can't get the perfect solutions, especially on the jeep hood lock, such as "incompatible with Front Trail Cam", "grille trimming and carrying extra keys are required" and so on.

    Therefore, after in-depth market research and long-term careful development, Lasfit's product R&D department has launched a brand-new hood lock for all Jeep owners who are thinking about the Jeep's security. Our goal is to increase the deterrent against thieves, reduce the chance of jeeps being stolen, and keep the investments under the hood safer!

    The Lasfit stealth automatic anti-theft hood lock is installed in place of the safety hook. When locked, the hood lock will not pop out even if the locks on both sides are open. Also, fingers cannot reach in and flick the safety catch for locking. The Hood Lock deters thieves from walking away with valuable underhood parts such as batteries, intakes, superchargers, etc.

    Non-Destructive Installation

    2. Special Stealth Design - Doesn't Affect The Front Trail Camera.

    We are the first only one in the market with this design. Our hood lock can be installed on Jeep WITH the front camera. Besides, you can make any build on the front grille as well. It is safe and beautiful without destroying the appearance of the original car.

    Special Stealth Design - Doesn't Affect The Front Camera.

    3. Automatic CAN-BUS Control - Use Factory Key FOB To Lock/Unlock.

    The Lasfit Stealth anti-theft hood lock uses factory Key FOB to lock and unlock the hood lock (CAN-BUS control). No additional keys are required.

    It will connect to the original car's Canbus and OBD, using a pneumatic slider to lock the hood safety hook. Canbus accepts command signals while the OBD is for power supply. When the lock receives the signal to lock the car, it will send a signal to the piston pump, and the piston pump starts to pump air and push to close the lock. When the lock receives the unlock signal, the air inside will be pumped out and the lock will be reopened.

    So it will lock/unlock the hood automatically when you press the lock/unlock button on your original key fob.

    4. Manual Control - Two Emergency Manual Opening Options.

    While our version 1.0 hood lock system has always had an electronic unlock button, most folks' biggest concern with version 1.0 was that most unlocking solutions required power. While we provided a 12V emergency cable to pull power from a secondary vehicle to get under your hood in an emergency, a jump starter or a second vehicle isn't always available.

    Therefore, the version 2 system adds some nice improvements over the first. This biggest change is the manual release option. With version 2, there is now a cable in the cab that can be pulled to manually release in the event of no vehicle power. This means now you don't have to worry about being both stranded and unable to get under your hood.

    • Press The Manual Switch Button To Lock/Unlock (CAN-BUS Control, Power Required)
    • Pull The Manual Release Handle To Unlock The Hood If Battery Dies. (No Power Required)

    Note: After the car is turned off, only two on/off operations are allowed to avoid endless on/off operations that may cause the car battery to lose power.

    5. The Original Hood Side Locks + Lasfit Hood Lock = No Hood Flutter

    Driving your Jeep on uneven trails or twisting back roads cause annoying hood flutter. Featured to securely hold down your Jeep hood tight, our hood lock is a good complement to a locking hood, greatly eliminating annoying hood flutter on uneven trails.

    6. Durable Material Built For Off-Road.

    Lasfit Stealth Anti-Theft Hood Lock is made of die-cast electroplated stainless steel and high-strength aluminum alloy which possess excellent heat resistance and corrosion resistance. It's a waterproof and dustproof locking mechanism, which supports operation in harsh environments and is built for off-road.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    Q1: Would the hood lock work with a Tazer Programmer installed on my vehicle?

    A: You will need to unplug the Tazer during the installation of the hood lock. After plugin the pass-through from the hood lock, you can plug the tazer back into the OBD port. Our hood lock doesn't send or receive commands through the OBD port, therefore it won't affect the functions of the Tazer.

    Q2: Would the Jeep front camera work normally after installing our hood latches?

    A: Our hood latches can be installed on Jeep with the front camera. Allowing the front camera to function normally after the installation of the lock is one of the most important features of our hood lock. Therefore, it won't affect the overall look and functions of your front camera after installation. Besides, you can make any build on the front grille as well.

    Q3: I'd like the added security without having to carry extra keys, but I'm worried about how to unlock the hood if the FOB key remote fails?

    A: We have offered an emergency Manual Unlock Switch for you to open the hood in case of the FOB key remote fails. Press the manual unlock button to release air from the lock module. Wait about 5 seconds, then press the button again to turn off manual mode.

    Note: The emergency switch must be turned off after the manually unlocked to prevent the start battery from depleting. A warning tone will sound to remind you to turn it off.

    Q4: Even though I love high-tech stuff but if there's really no emergency opening option it's a huge design flaw and risk to me, for example, what if the Jeep's start battery dies?

    A: In the case the battery dies, you can directly use our manual release option to gently pull the handle to unlock the hood. (No power is required)

    Q5: Can I unlock the hood with the emergency manual switch by connecting a jump starter to the cigarette lighter in the case of a dead battery?

    A: Of course, although we no longer provide a 12V emergency power cable, if you have such a power cable yourself, you can also use it to connect a jump starter to the cigarette lighter to unlock the hood with our manual switch if the battery dies.

    But we'd recommend a quicker and easier way to unlock it by gently pulling our manual switch handle without the power required.

    Q6: Will it interfere with the Ravelco system after installing the Lasfit hood lock?

    A: No, it won't.

    Q7: Will this hood lock work with the wrangler 392?

    A: Yes, it fits in the 392. The hood lock should work on all 2018+Wrangler JL, JLU, and 2019+Gladiator JT regardless of trim levels or engine types as long is equipped with the power door lock and key fobs.

    *Here is a post from one of our customers who installed a Lasfit hood lock on a 392 for reference.

    Q8: Does the pump make noise inside the cab when locking/unlocking the vehicle?

    A: It does… it’s fairly quiet and short.

    Q9: Is the Lasfit hood lock system compatible with manual transmission vehicles?

    A: Our system is NOT compatible with manual transmission. But if you have some methods to safely pass wires through the firewall to your Jeep, then it may work. However, we do not recommend applying our system to manual transmissions in case of any potential risks caused by improper operation.

    Q10: Can the emergency manual switch work like the FOB key to lock and unlock the hood if I don't want to use the FOB key?

    A: Sure, you can lock or unlock your hood with our provided emergency manual switch, the emergency switch button will be automatically locked after 45 seconds.

    Note: The sound of beeping means that it has been locked, usually after pressing the switch for 45 seconds.

    Q11: To operate the manual cable release, do I need to unplug any hoses to bleed out air first?

    A: Yes, you need to unplug the two air lines from the controller box to bleed out air first, then pull the manual release cable to unlock the hood.

    Note: The manual release cable is used as another emergency switch to unlock the hood if the Jeep's start battery dies, but we do not recommend using it under normal conditions.

    What i needed 22 JLU

    First off
    Your engineers and product developers fought of everything!
    Well packaged. Great materials
    Everything in the box was used for the installation ! Nothing extra or not related to my specific 22 Jeep Wrangler JLU
    Installation was easy. Except for the firewall grommet lol. But I expected that ! Worked as it should. I would recommend this lock system over the hood locks which fail or get rusted or someone can tamper with them
    Lasfit is hidden .
    Lasfit one thing you may want to note for diesel owners. When routing the air liens behind the headlight. The ecodiesel has a air intake and a baffle which I had to cut a small piece out to make sure the air lines would not get pinched or cut once the grille was installed. That’s all

    If you are looking for a perfect bolt-on hood lock then this is the one. I was debating between this and that other hood lock but I bought this instead because I don't like the idea of cutting the plastic for the grill on my truck. I don't know but mine doesn't come with an instruction on how to install it which is fine because there are a couple of videos on YouTube you can watch and it's pretty easy to follow.

    2021 JLURD -- install & use notes

    I just installed the (deep breath) Lasfit Stealth Anti-Theft Automatic Hood Lock System on my JLURD. It’s a fairly easy install and the directions are really good with some clear color pictures. But there are a few things to point out that Lasfit doesn’t clearly address.

    Install notes:
    - They say it’s compatible with the front trail camera…and yes, it is. No issues here.
    - The directions have you remove the front grille. On a stock JL, this is pretty easy. If you have a winch, you might not be able to do so without moving the winch. However, it easy enough to disconnect only the top of the grille and work behind it. You’ll just need a Torx 30 socket and ratchet as there will not be enough room to use a long Torx screwdriver.
    - It is compatible with the diesel, but you’ll have to work a little extra to clear the lines around/through the air intake located on the opposite side from gas engines.
    - Compatible with Ravelco anti-theft device, but very likely it and the Lasfit lines are supposed to use the same firewall grommet. Since disconnecting the Ravelco is not practical, this becomes a problem trying to fit the Lasfit through the same hole. Otherwise, you may consider a new hole but there is not a lot of free space to create a new one nor is it easy to get in there with tools and adult hands. If you route them into the cabin a different way, then you’ll need longer air lines. This is probably the same problem you will have if you have a manual transmission and why it states it’s only compatible with automatics.
    - Compatible with Tazer JL Mini, but it and the Lasfit control box take the same spot. You’ll need to move the Tazer out of the way before bolting the control box in place.
    - Add a Phillips screwdriver and 7 mm wrench to the list of tools needed so you attach the control box to the mounting bracket.
    - I hate that I have to use a pass-through OBD port. It seems clunky and wish there was a better way to make whatever connection it needs from the OBD port.

    Use notes:
    - It works! Simple enough that locking my doors locks the hood. With the Tazer hood alarm enabled, opening the latches causes the alarm to sound with the hood locked. Hopefully this will surprise a potential thief.
    - Curiously, Lasfit says the hood lock only works “when you press the lock/unlock button on your original key fob.” I asked for clarification about using it with the OEM passive entry and they responded with “Regarding your first question, the hood lock can be unlocked and locked by using the key FOB unlock/lock buttons, and can't through passive entry procedures.” HOWEVER, mine locks and unlocks with both the remote buttons and the passive system.
    - According to Lasfit, “you can lock or unlock your hood with our provided emergency manual switch….” My emergency manual switch works for unlocking the hood, but I have not been able to make it lock.

    After installing this, I like how practical it is. But I can also see how easy it is to defeat if you’re familiar with the connections. It’s best to think of it as just one more hindrance to a vehicle thief so they move on to your neighbor’s Jeep.

    Overall quality of product is very good, I am mostly happy with the stealth box. I wish that the online directions were a little better. They don’t really cover everything step by step to well, but you can figure it out. In step 4.3.3 using the so-called existing bolt, in my Gladiator there wasn’t one so, no way to finish mounting the manual unlock switch. Picture below shows the bolt circled in orange. I think they should include one with the kit just in case others don’t have it as well. The replacement cover/grommet type seal that is placed at the firewall that the air hoses and pull cable route through needs to be slightly larger for a better seal. Install was easy maybe 3-4 hours give or take. But the peace of mind you get is worth every penny. Bobby D.

    - According to Lasfit, “you can lock or unlock your hood with our provided emergency manual switch….” My emergency manual switch works for unlocking the hood, but I have not been able to make it lock.

    After installing this, I like how practical it is. But I can also see how easy it is to defeat if you’re familiar with the connections. It’s best to think of it as just one more hindrance to a vehicle thief so they move on to your neighbor’s Jeep.

    Overall quality of product is very good, I am mostly happy with the stealth box. I wish that the online directions were a little better. They don’t really cover everything step by step to well, but you can figure it out. In step 4.3.3 using the so-called existing bolt, in my Gladiator there wasn’t one so, no way to finish mounting the manual unlock switch. Picture below shows the bolt circled in orange. I think they should include one with the kit just in case others don’t have it as well. The replacement cover/grommet type seal that is placed at the firewall that the air hoses and pull cable route through needs to be slightly larger for a better seal. Install was easy maybe 3-4 hours give or take. But the peace of mind you get is worth every penny. Bobby D.
