same with this one.. the PO left in place before taking off and bent the rod and cracked teh alum.

It's a great product but I think the alum needed is a different formula as it need to be a bit stronger like the stuff ford is using on the body panels.

regular cast alum is OK but not real tough. I just thought this was a great design and it does have hole for pad lock which is nice.

I found the original patent
https://patents.google.com/patent/US3548975A/en

I was patented by Robert Herndon in 1970. In a bit stronger material of alum this could be a winner in my book, and made in "merica".

any idea how much they cost now??
