A bonnet or hood is designed to protect a vehicle’s engine compartment from dust, rain and external contact or impact. Bonnet lock plate and latches are components designed to secure the bonnet, and ensure safety of under-the-bonnet components. The bonnet lock plate is a component of the bonnet lock and latch assembly and functions to hold the latch and spring pawl from moving. Furthermore, the bonnet lock plate helps to prevent the bonnet from opening without first being unlocked and protects against accidental bonnet disengagement while the vehicle is in motion. Some newer car models have a key-lock in the front grille, or on the bonnet itself. Bonnet latch or catch is located beneath the bonnet, and is generally at the front end. Globally, manufacturers of bonnet lock plate and latch are focusing on producing stainless steel and carbon fiber assemblies. In addition, manufacturers are exploring newer designs for bonnet lock plate and latch assemblies.
