This pack of 2 replacement locks will keep the lower cover (that secures the filter) in place on your extractor fan. It's a genuine part that will fit select models of Bosch, Neff & Siemens cookerhoods.
Please note: Bosch advise that you will require an adjustable clamp/grip (eg. plumbers grips) in order to fit this part. Apply slow pressure until the parts click together.

How to replace a cooker hood lock
This video should help with fitting this part. However, the exact layout and fitting technique may differ for your make and model.
Be safe - always unplug any appliance from the electricity supply before carrying out any work on it.
If you are in any doubt contact a qualified repairer.
I have just received my order for the new cookerhood mechanical locks and have tried to get them to fit but they just don't. One of my locks is already in place so I just needed one for the other side. I have tried every which way to fit them but they just won't fit together. When I try fitting them together without the hood inbetween they don't either. Do I have faulty locks?

There is a photo guide on the e-spares website. Just place the hood on a hard surface, insert the pin from underneath; locate the lock part (red) on top of the pin head and tap sharply once with a hammer. Just check first that the pin is intact and that the hole in the red locking part is free. When the catches failed for us, the pin had broken off in the red lock.

They can only fit together one way - there is an oblong shape on the grey part which should match up with the oblong hole on the red part. Lie your cooker hood on a work surface inside uppermost, insert the grey part from underneath, line up red part from the top and just lock them together by tapping sharply with a hammer.
QCan you show the way these parts are put together to hold the unit in place? I am experiencing some difficulty in installing these locks1 Answer

Get ready, this is a technical one!
The following link is to Bosch's website, where you can access line drawings for your specific Bosch cooker hood.
First click the 'United Kingdom' link. On the next page you have to type your model number in the 'E-number' field of 'Appliance search', located on the right hand side of the page. This should then bring up the line drawings for your cooker hood and instruct you how to fit your locks.
P.S. If you are having trouble locating the model number on your cooker, check our guide to locating model numbers here: http://www.espares.co.uk/findingmodelnumbers.aspx#a1
