nope... but use 'em for the ones that cannot hook up to the stock latch or if the Hood doesn't sit flush cool

and then a gust of wind gets under one side of your Hood and blows it up into your windshield and you are blinded as you plow your car into whatever happens to be in your path - then you get jerked forward because of the sudden stop, and are now strangled by your seatbelt and then violently pushed back by your air bag, giving you whiplash... while the front of your car gets pushed in even further, squashing your legs, and twisting and crunching them...

use hoodpins to avoid the hassle - they usually run $19 to $35 (SHIPPED) and install takes less than 30 minutes...
