Default Factory Hood Lock

I need to replace my hood latches, and I want to secure my engine. Will I be better off with locking side latches or buying OEM style latches and a lock for my front hood release?

If you are determined to lock the hood, I'd rather lock/unlock one thing rather than have to do so on both sides each time.

I'm with resharp001 and I would go further and look for one of those locks that keys to your ignition key so you don't have to keep track of yet another key.
