Hood Latch Not Closing

okay so the passenger side hood latch does not want to catch and close. this causes the right side of the hood to wobble up and down when i am driving on the high way.

has anyone else had the problem or know how to fix it? ohh and i tried to alter the spring already and does not good.

Hmm... I need a pair of those. My hood takes forever to lock if I open it.
