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.
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.
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.
