Are you planning on creating a metal Aerocatch?
We are not planning on creating a metal AeroCatch as our current material, which is a high performance glass-filled Nylon has proven to be the most cost-effective build material whilst still exceeding the desired strength and life characteristics.
120/125, what’s the difference?
The latch mechanism and locking performance are the same for both the 120 Series and 125 Series, the difference being is that the 120 Series is the above panel mounting option and the 125 Series is the below panel mounting option.

In the first instance, please contact us with the following information:
- Details on where and when purchased.
- A summary of what happened to cause the issue.
- Photos of the AeroCatch, including the strike pin.
This information will then be reviewed by our technical team and we will be in contact to discuss further.

Which Aerocatch will fit my car?
How do I install/fit my Aerocatch product?
Please follow the links to our installation instructions and videos here: (Installation | AeroCatch).
Which is the best AeroCatch product for me?
AeroCatch is a universal product and which version will depend on the application; hood/bonnet, tailgate, bumper etc. However, most applications are hood/bonnet and we recommend the 120 Series for its ease of installation.
If you are looking to add an AeroCatch to your street car we recommend that you buy the locking versions of the AeroCatch (120-2100, 125-2100). There are also other points to consider when choosing your AeroCatch for example, for AeroCatch to be installed correctly the panel that is being installed on must be fairly flat. Another point to consider is the location of the strike pin which could dictate the position of the AeroCatch on the hood/bonnet.
If you require any further technical information about the installation of the different models of AeroCatch please go to Technical Information | Fitting Instructions | Drawings | AeroCatch.
