Mod on the grill - to lock the hood ?

Hello all
What can be the use of this drilled plate welded on the grill ? I am wondering if it is to lock the hood ?

If the angle protrudes further forward than the hood enough, a flag or such?

I imagined a second drilled hole in the front of the hood and so it would be possible to close the hood with a padlock.
But why ?
