Hood release handle

The release handle is a critical component because it must balance strength and appearance. It must have the smooth surface finish and consistent color of the auto interior. But strength and stiffness are also needed to engage the release mechanism.

With a balance of strength, stiffness and a good surface appearance, Ascend's Vydyne R633H-05 is an ideal choice for this application. The black color is approved by Ford,® General Motors® and Chrysler® for use in automotive interiors.

The Ascend automotive team relies on years of experience to create optimal parts for Ford, General Motors and Chrysler.
