Can I Take It Through a Car wash?
Sure, but at least think about going touchless. If you are going to spare your car the holes drilled in the bumper, you are also going to want to spare your paint the scratches and swirls of an automatic carwash!

  1. Solid Construction, Perfect Fit

    Posted by Dan R. on 31st Mar 2014

    We fitted the product to a 2013 Mercedes GLK 350. Well built and contoured perfectly to the curve of the bumper. So glad not to have to drill.

  2. Great idea and sturdy design, needs some fine tuning

    Posted by Dane on 27th Mar 2014

    I'm very glad I bought this plate mount. It is super low profile and seems sturdy enough. All the materials feel heavy duty and durable. My only complaints, and the reason it doesn't get 5 stars, is that they make the tow hook reverse threaded to match my car (VW GTI), but then they made the single bolt that mounts the frame to the tow hook standard thread. So by tightening the frame, you loosen the tow hook bolt. Once the plate frame is in place, I can't access the tow hook bolt to hold it in place. It took a couple tries and I'm still not sure how tight both screws are. This may not be a problem for cars with a standard threaded tow hook bolt. Secondly, the screws that hold the plate to the frame are about twice as long as they need to be. The top two would be scratching the car if I didn't put a little electrical tape on the bumper behind them, and I'm not sure how long that will last.

  3. solid product

    Posted by John on 27th Feb 2014

    Built very well - good solid construction, while not too heavy either.

    A bit finicky to install (perhaps a quick release option?), but all in all a very good item.

    Good work!

  4. well made

    Posted by Mark on 20th Feb 2014

    Materials look good and it's well made. Still not crazy about the look, but much better than any alternatives.

  5. Best Mount in the Business

    Posted by Jheri on 18th Feb 2014

    The new Pro series is the ABSOLUTE best in the business. Easy 5 minute installation job. Another great product turned out by Cravenspeed.

  6. Great mount, would not recommend using plastic fasteners

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Feb 2014

    Mount is great quality and very easy to install. I would not recommend using the plastic fasteners as I originally had these installed and they were promptly ripped off when my vehicle went through an automated car wash. Now that I'm using metal bolt/nut, the thing is solid as a rock.

  7. Completely effective; Installation was a snap!

    Posted by Kevin Klein on 20th Jan 2014

    I watched the funny marketing video on Youtube and love it. But what I love even more was how effective this product is and yet so so simple to install! Any future cars having a similar requirement will find me here purchasing the product again! Two thumbs up and 5-Stars from me!

  8. An excellent alternative to damaging drilling

    Posted by Matt on 24th Dec 2013

    This product was easy to install, looks great, much better than damaging my front bumper by drilling a plate holder. Shipped quickly, easy to order. All is well.

    Now to get the ticket dismissed.....

  9. Great design & quality!

    Posted by Rich on 18th Dec 2013

    Got this for my 2013 Dodge Dart & love it. It looks great and was very easy to install. No complaints here...

  10. Love the no drill aspect

    Posted by Ashley on 15th Dec 2013

    I love that I didn't have to drill into my new car, Hyundai Elantra, especially since the Hyundai rep said I would have no choice. It's sticks out a little bit more than I'd like it to, hence the 4 stars, but at least no holes :-) Really easy install and quick shipment.
