Rear Hatch Latch Extension

Detailed Description

This small steel extension bar goes between your latch and your rear hatch, holding your tailgate slightly ajar to allow ventilation while still allowing it to lock. Goes on and off in seconds, and is small enough to store anywhere.

Disclaimer: Don't drive with this in use! (Also we cannot guarantee that someone could not pry it open with enough force, but it would be extremely difficult - much harder than breaking a window.)
