Avoid Tickets Without Drilling Your Bumper

The Platypus utilizes the existing tow eye in your bumper, so you do not have to drill any holes in your new car. This method of installing the front plate is common and legal in all states that require front license plates. At times when the plate is not needed, it can be removed easily, leaving no trace that it was ever there.

Fits Right and Will Not Alarm Your PDC Sensors

We have designed and tested hundreds of configurations on many current vehicle models and trim levels, this is not a one size fits all system. The model for your vehicle will sit tight to the bumper so that is looks like it was meant to be there, and it will also avoid setting off the sensors on your bumper (if you are having a sensor issue, troubleshoot it or contact us and we will resolve it!) Although it will sit close, the sturdy plate backing will not scratch your bumper no matter how you drive.

Tough Construction and Rigid Design, Made in the USA

The 12 gauge steel Plate Backing is full sized so that the edges of your license plate do not get bent in a car wash or otherwise. That plate has a black powdercoat baked on that will last forever. The Stud is lathe machined from 6061 aluminum and black anodized. We make them at the high end of the receivers tolerance so that the studs fits tight and stays put while you drive (this means that the stud will not go in without a wrench, like the stock tow hook does). The button head hardware is stainless steel, and uses an allen key to discourage theft. The hardware provided is the exact right length for your plate and will not stick through the back to scratch your bumper, if you would like to install a plate frame you will need a longer set of hardware for $1 here.

There's a Design for several Cadillac Vehicles

We make a specific kit for several different Cadillacs. If your car is on the list then you can be sure that we have worked with our customers to test the fit. If you don't see your specific model, let us know and we would be happy to see if we can find a solution for you.

We have tested the kits that we have listed, but there are likely more Cadillac vehicles that we can fit. If your Caddy has a screw in towing eye, we can probably make something work.

    I was surprised when the mount arrived, it is very sturdy and of excellent quality, far better than the web site lead me to expect. It was installed in less than 5 minutes and was just what I was looking for to avoid drilling holes in our Cadillac SRX. Looks great, works as advertised, very happy with purchase.

    I like the concept and design of the product. It keeps me from drilling holes on a new car. My only issue with the product is it constantly sets off the front parking sensor on the passenger side of the car.
