That is where the always-reliable Mustang Convertible Top Latches come into play.

Convertible Top Latches

When you are thinking about how to increase the longevity of your Mustang convertible top, you are likely thinking about the top’s condition when it is up. There are numerous parts on the market to ensure that the top is safe when it is up, including Mustang convertible top tension cables, pads, and tacking strips. While it is important to protect the top when it is up, you want to make sure that is fully operational when you decide that you want it lowered. When you put the Mustang convertible top down, you are looking to enjoy the cool breeze in your face while driving, without having to worry if everything is properly clamped in. Mustang convertible top latches are comprised of hooks and springs to keep tension on the convertible tops and allow them to lock in place. Additionally, Mustang convertible top latches are complete with hold down clamps on both the driver and passenger sides to help bolt your top in the down position.

After many years of experiencing endless thrills in their Mustang convertibles, classic pony car owners will eventually need to replace their original tops, as well as the individual parts required. If you have replaced your old worn out top, it would be wise to check on the condition of your factory Ford Mustang convertible top latches. All of those years of opening and closing and holding your top in place during intense winds will eventually catch up to your Mustang convertible top latches. While most Mustang convertible top latches are constructed from heavy-duty material, no original car part is designed to last forever. Repairing or even replacing your Ford Mustang convertible top latches will allow you to enjoy those nice-weather days with the top down as it should be!
