Locking the hood?

Is there a way to lock the hood..? I don't mean putting back on in place.. I mean actually securely locking so others won't have access to under the hood

There isn't one that is built into the car. You would be on your own fabricating a locking mechanism.
Good luck.

There really isn't much under there worth messing with except maybe taking the hood itself.

You can download the manual from the smart USA site: https://www.smartusa.com/resources/d...ers_manual.pdf
