Don't see how. I have dzus latches and don't think that they would at all work for a front lip.

I'm confident they have ones in the style mine are modified to.. And most importantly, they have a safety so it can't unlatch itself, and it has a through hole you can run a cotter pin or zip tie through for more security.
I know this thread is OLD. But, if anyone is looking for Protex/Latch equipment in the US at a reasonable price:

Reid Supply carries everything except the retaining pins.

(PX-18 is the catch plate. Those are the JUNIORs btw)

How did you do your rivets? Will the rivet tool work or would I need the gun? Any help on this would be great man.

They're super expensive, depending on who you get them from.

Last night I installed the PW JDM bumper quick releases. When I installed the FMIC I noted that the bumper was a pretty tight fit, so I bought this kit. But in the end I got a few clips in and it seemed fine. But while at the dragstrip I popped the corner clip out twice, and then ended up having to take the bumper off to redo some intercooler piping, so I figured I probably should just put on the quick releases to be safe and make things easier. I'm not super sold on the look, but it isn't all that noticeable.

Here's the parts:



I used a 3" BandAid to measure the hole spacing:



Drilled some holes with a stepped bit:





Installed with allen key and 11mm socket, then put on the rubber o-ring:



Not too noticeable from a distance:

If you're referring to these, they're made by Dzus. I got them on the Speedway Motors website.
