Take a close look at the open side latch. It's a plate with a cable release.

If you are able to reach over to the closed latch cable, you may be able to just pull on the entire cable to release the latch. Try to grip it in a manner that binds the inside cable & pull.

If nothing else, have someone hold the hood as high as possible, and if you can, squeeze your hand to the closed latch and manually release it. Practice on the open side first so you get a feel for how the latch works. (Note: I do not kow if there will be enough clearance, but it's worth a try.)

... because I now know what exactly I'm looking at and how the tool works.
Care to share with your fellow DC buds?

This will come up again...
If you're really up to it, you could do a product review of the tool. Explain why the instructions don't quite make it.

TIA
