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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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)
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.
A: No, it won’t.
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.
A: It does… it’s fairly quiet and short.
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.
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.
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.
