After my recent bonnet latch fiasco I thought I'd change to aerocatch latches since they look a lot better and its obvious when they are not latched because they stick up.

I purchased a set of aerocatch latches on trademe for about $60, less than a 3rd of the price I got quoted elsewhere so had a feeling something was up. After unpackaging them I thought they looked kinda shitty for such an expensive product. Bit of research and I find there is fakes, and these are them.

The trader 'Jamex' didn't like me pointing out they where counterfeit and tried to deny it but I see he has since changed all his auctions to indicate they are "Aero catch style". Hope he stops including all the counterfeit packaging too.

Considering how steep the fines are in NZ for selling counterfeit goods, I'm surprised the nz distributor (is it racebrakes?) doesn't go after them aggressively, the fines for a company dealing in conterfeit goods are enormous.

I doubt very much they will fail in service and if one of the pair does do I'll replace them the genuine article.

Thats interesting. I just bought a set on ebay for my fiberglass bonnet recently. Must check them out against those pictures next week when I'm home!
