No they are not plastic, these things are solid steel. They are kind of heavy. I got mine from Morris 4x4.

I purchased the Tuffy hood lock. It required some hand fitting on my LJ, though.

I went with the tuffy lock also it's a very
good product for the money!
Takes less than 20 mins to install/adjust.

Another Tuffy lock user here. Mine took a little more work to make it fit right, but works good. Works by preventing the hood latch from unhooking from the core support. I do say that the side latches are probably more un-defeatable and nice looking.

I bought one of these, I only use it when out of town and take it off at home:

I thought about getting the one SuperTJ mentioned but decided against for the sole reason that it would be hard to unlock during winter, freezing rain ect. If I didn't have the weather issues, I'd get a set.

I have tube fenders and the bolts would be easy to access/remove with the hood strap locks.
