The Best Way to Attach a License Plate to your smart!
Some of the states may mandate that you have a license plate on the front of your brand new car, but they can't make you drill permanent holes to mount it there. We don't like to see front bumpers being drilled in order to mount a plate, so we have worked with a partner and came up with this mount that attaches to the tow hook socket that already exists on your smart. All you do is pop off the cap on your bumper, screw in the new bolt and mount the new frame. Installation takes minutes!
The Platypus utilizes the tow hook eye that is hidden on your bumper for mounting your license plate. We want to eliminate the need for you to ever drill into a brand new car. A Tow Bolt mounted plate is also easily removable for track days and shows; it takes only 5 minutes to install the first time and after that the entire plate can usually just be rotated around for quick removal. That means if you ever need the tow hook in an emergency the Platypus will not be in your way.
This is designed for the smart 450, 451 and 453 fortwo Models.
