Fake Aerocatch's - Replaced

Well a little investigation into why the Aerocatch bonnet catchs had gone rusty and it turns out they were fake. Luckily i bought them from a local business who was also caught out and they promptly sorted out the issue and replaced with some genuine ones.

Here is some photos of the real catches, the first thing i saw was the packaging was different as the fake ones don't have the "Made in England" on them.
 They also feel a lot sturdier as well
 This is the real one, no tooling marks.
 Here is the fake one, see the tooling marks

If you are looking for catches check the link above and make sure you buy genuine ones as the fake ones will rust straight away and they don't seem as strong.
