This is a beautiful hood ornament for big rigs and semi trucks. It goes mounted on top of the hood, usually bolted down with two (2) enclosed bolts and nuts. It is not meant to be used as a grab handle to open the hood, but it does enhance the look of a truck. This specific unit is a Chrome diecast alloy Swan with a high gloss chrome finish. It measures about 5.5" long, 4" wide, and 7" tall.
