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 nearly every Lexus Vehicle

We make a specific kit for almost every car Lexus makes. If your car is on the list then you can be sure that we have worked with the local dealerships 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. Almost all Lexus vehicles use the same thread size for the towing eye, so the only variable for us will be the length, which can be determined fairly easily with photos.

    Looked at a few front plate relocates. This one by cravenspeed was excellent. All the pieces were finished nicely. Even the bolts are stainless steel. This is critical as others will rust if you live anywhere that salts their streets in the winter.

    I won't lie, I was a little uneasy spending the money for this, but as soon as I opened the box I knew I made the right choice. Everything is high quality and super easy to install! I wouldn't think twice about getting one of these again! I also received it on the other side of the country two days after ordering!

    Best Lexus Plate Mount & Best Product Support EVER! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Oct 2016

    The Platypus is the best license plate out there bar none. It is incredibly strong, easy to mount, and invisible from the front when installed on my ES 300h.

    Cannot say enough about Cravenspeed's support could not be more satisfied. Logan responded quickly and resolved my minor issue with the skill (and patience) of a mechanical engineer/machinist.

    An amazing product with amazing people who stand behind their work!
