Default Hood Pin Alternative

Is there an alternative to hood pins for SAFELY securing a carbonfiber or fiberglass hood? I'm not talking about different kinds of hoods pins (Sparco-style, moroso-style, cable-style, etc), but actual things that would work similarly, except be LESS visable from the outisde. Any input is appreciated.

function over form. safety first.

In all honnesty, I'm probably going to end up with Sparco hood pin (no knockoff, they rust, I've experienced it first hand), take the pin and ring out, spray the plate black, and replace the pin assembly. They'll look pretty nice with a silver ring and pin, silver screws, and a flat-black base on carbonfiber.

I'll sell you some JDM hood retaining tape... $200 a foot if you want the lightweight stuff, which I would reccomend.

Only cheap hoods with weak or non-existent latches require hood pins. Plenty of people have CF hood and don't use hood pins.

you name a brand... any brand, and i guarantee multiple people have had it fly open on them.
i've heard horror stories about every manufacturer i can think of... it's no where near worth the risk not to use hoodpins or some sort of securing device
