Rubber Molded Hood Leveler


  • Rubber Bumper Bolt Ref: 105613

    Automotive Hood Leveler
    Custom Rubber Corp. used its expertise in bonding rubber to metal for these rubber molded hood leveler bolts. A hexagonal molded rubber bumper is formed around the head of the metal bolt insert allowing for turning with a standard wrench.  The plastic nut shown on some of the parts is an adjustment nut.  The fully assembled part keeps car hoods level after they are latched closed.

    Molding pressure keeps the metal bolt insert in place as rubber is injected into the mold. During the molding process, rubber encapsulates the head of the metal bolt insert. The design of the mold and finished molded rubber part, as well as the process, ensures that the metal insert will not rotate or slip when the rubber head is turned.

    Rubber Bonding Experts
    When bonding rubber to metal, mechanical encapsulation can be a very cost effective way to bond the rubber to the metal insert. Mechanical encapsulation eliminates the need for specialty adhesives and makes it easier to retrieve the metal insert for reuse in case of a fallout. Let Custom Rubber Corp. help you determine the best way for you to bond metal to rubber.
