So I folded my windshield while off-roading last weekend, but within like 10 minutes I managed to break off the footman loop that the windshield ties down to when folded. The thing was just a piece of plastic and stood no chance against the weight of my windshield. So my question is should I replace it with the factory plastic piece (leaving the weakest link the cheapest link) or should I go with a steel one? My only concern would the steel one ripping out of the hood, instead of just breaking at the base.

Mine was also plastic and I replaced it with a stainless steel version. Much happier with the steel. A couple of larger washers under the smaller washers supplied with the new loop should prevent them from popping through.
