The Platypus is a front license plate bracket that is made in the USA to exacting specifications. It is one of the best Fiat 500 Abarth accessories for keeping your license plate holder legal with no drilling required. In many states, you need a front plate on your Fiat, but that does not mean you have to drill it in permanently. This Platypus is designed to fit the existing port on the front bumper of a 500 Abarth for model years from 2008 to 2019. 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. We believe that touchless is the only kind of automatic car wash anyone should subject their Fiat's paint job to. If you absolutely need to use a rag car wash, then the Platypus should be removed to avoid getting caught up in the machine. We have planned for this. Using the included flat wrench you can loosen the bolt a ¼ turn and then slide the plate off before the wash. This takes less than a minute. Although we have never had a plate backing come loose accidentally, each plate backing is balanced such that if it did the plate would hang and not fall off.
