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 don't get snagged by passers-by. The plate has a black powdercoat that will last forever. The Stud is 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.

Quick Release Feature

This updated version of the Platypus has a key-hole feature in the backplate that makes it very easy to remove without having to take your license plate off. Use the included low profile wrench to slightly loosen the bolt that attaches the backplate, then slide the backplate off of the stud. The plate is balanced to ensure that even if it were to come loose accidentally, it would still hang on the stud so that your plate does not fall off.

One Size Fits All

In general we brag about how each of our kits were designed specifically for the vehicle they fit, but Smart made it easy for us. Our smart Smart mount will fit every model and trim level. Shout out to Smart for making our jobs easier. What a smart thing to do.
