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 Nissan Vehicles
We make specific kits for several Nissan vehicles. If your car is on the list then you can be sure that we have worked with the local cars 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. Unfortunately, many Nissan vehicles don't use the front tow point that our mount design is based on. Many of them have a receiver, but it usually doesn't have any threads in it, which means our mount has nothing to attach to.

Amazing product and service!

I contacted CravenSpeed on a whim hoping they may be able to provide a mount for our new Rogue. After working with Logan on getting measurements, two frame kits were sent for me to try fitment. I selected the off-center as it stayed closer to the body line of the vehicle. That is now the kit for the Rogue! Great service, great product. I did coat the threads of the bolt in anti-seize in case I ever need to remove it to use the tow hook itself. Thanks again!!
