Help!! I use my simo nordic cruiser all the time!! The latch on the hood broke off of the right side and now it no longer stays in one spot. It seems that the left latch cannot hold the weight of the hood with just itself. It is the lever that you can adjust when you want to put the hood forward or backward. The latch folds out for you to move the hood where you want it and then you can push it tight to make the hood stay in place. What should I do???

It appears that Simo have gone out of business, and their partner company Bertini is not supporting simo strollers, so I don't think you'll get much joy from them.
Best I can think of is to take the stroller to any reasonable machine shop, and get them to make a replacement for the broken part from an appropriate material- it is probably the same or a mirror image of the one on the other side. This shouldn't cost too much, but ask first.
A quick solution would be to fix an adlustable strap to the hood, going forwards and backwards from the front near the centre. This strap could then be attached to the handle and to the other end behind the hood. ( best way is a buckle stiched to the hood near the open edge, with one continuous strap running from a loop round the handle, through the buckle, then down to a piece of strong elastic attached to just below the base of the hood at the back. A bit of experimenting with the tension on the elastic should get this working quick enough). This may not be an ideal solution, but it may be easiest and cheapest.
Hope this helps, if you need to find a machine shop near you then please give a general area and I can see if i can find you one :)
