Front licence plate

Has anyone used velcro to install front licence plate bracket?

Re: Front licence plate

I've used 1/8" to 1/16" double sided foam tape. Creates a cushion and great seal. Also on Amazon, found great matte black license plate trim

Did you put the tape completely around the edges of the whole bracket, top, bottom and sides?

Re: Front licence plate

Hey YFD_322,

I found matte black license plate trim on Amazon, but it only came with (4) bolts / screws. I live in MA and the states requires front back plates. I frequent Home Depot for renovations on our home and came across Scotch Exterior foam tape.

3M Scotch 1 in. x 1.66 yds. Outdoor Mounting Tape-411DC-SF - The Home Depot

I applied the tape to the remaining (3) sides (top secured by bolts/screws) and it has worked great. For reassurance, here in MA in the past week it's rained, snowed, and been 70 degrees. No movement from the tape. If you need to remove the tape, Goo be gone works well.

Hope this helps

Thanks. But you added the tape even though you screwed it?

Re: Front licence plate

My state requires front plate as well... but I just couldn't bring myself to poking holes in the bumper. Two years later... no problem.

Re: Front licence plate

There is a retractable plate holder... I believe SRTWIL has one. It bolts from underneath the front lip and operates with a remote. From the images I've seen... it seems to work well.

Re: Front licence plate

Yeah, I screwed in the front and double sided foam tape the rear plate. I didn't like the screw heads. Although, found some matte black license plates on Amazon with screws/black screw covers

But what I want to ask you is why install tape if you screwed into the bumper?

Re: Front licence plate

I've had my plates on my cars for several years. They've become bent and they don't sit flat and clean. I screwed the top to holes in and used the tape to keep the license plate from moving. Maybe a little over kill,but nothing moves now

Re: Front licence plate

I've lived in yonkers, NY my whole life and never had a front plate on any of my cars. The only time I've ever had a issue is going into this one village that boarders me and I got a warning for it. No front plate is a fix it ticket in NY, even if you do get written for not having a front plate you have 24 hours to show up at a police precinct with one on and they'll toss the ticket. In my mind I figure that I pay a lot of extra for sport packages that always include a very expensive front bumper and I am not drilling any holes into it. I'd rather take the ticket and come up with a idea that allows me to affix the front plate temporarily until i have the cops check it and then remove it or just eat the ticket all together. Just my 2cents
