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 several Toyota Vehicles
We make a specific kit for many cars that Toyota make. 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. We always love to add new fitments. It is likely that we already have the proper parts but just haven't had the opportunity to test on a car yet.
*On the 86, the back plate requires some slight adjustment so that it can mount without touching the bumper. The angle of the mounting tab can be changed to suit your car. The plate should never be touching the bumper once properly installed.

Install was extremely easy. 4 stars because I had to bend the tab a little more so it wouldn't rub the bumper.
The Platypus, a great fit on the Lexus ES 350!

Great product and service! I didn't see my car (Lexus ES 350) as a vehicle type on the website for The Platypus. I contacted customer service and they (Kellen) sent me a version of The Platypus to see if it would be a good fit. It fits perfectly. I appreciated the time Kellen took to exchange emails with me, and to ensure that the mount was a good fit. Thanks!

I was looking for a no holes mount and found Craven. Very simple to mount, no extra hardware needed (no extra nuts or washers to mount).
I had a different brand no holes mount on my Mini Cooper S (R56) and it was difficult to mount (lots of extra washers and nuts all thrown in a bag) and didn't have full license plate support like the Craven.
Craven's was packaged very nicely and included instructions.
Lots of clearance from the bumper and very sturdy.
