Why steal license plates?

A thief might steal the license plates off your vehicle to hide the identity of their vehicle!

If you frequently drive on toll roads and have a transponder on your plate, thieves steal the transponder to avoid paying tolls! The bad news is, you can still be held responsible for the fees they rack up, plus the fees you haven't paid since your pass was stolen.

Of course, another less dramatic reason can be that the thiefs' car has expired tags, and he doesn't want to renue them yet, so he steals your current plate to avoid renewing his for a while!

Either way, if your plates or transpoder are stolen, you are in for a big headache in getting them replaced.

Prevent this crime before it happens to you with the Plate Keeper™!

Still not sure which kit you need?

If you want to be sure, just remove one of the screws currently holding your license plate on the vehicle and compare it to the photos shown above. If you have a plate on the front of your car, be sure to check the front and back screws.

Still not sure? Take your screw to any hardware store and ask them to size it for you, then call or email us with that information.

We'll make sure you get the right kit!

 

Special case? We can do that!

Some vehicle manufacturers don't put mounting holes for license plates on the front of the vehicle.

In these cases, the car dealer will sometimes add a bracket onto the car, or drill holes in the bumper to mount the plate. This commonly happens in states which require a plate on both front and rear of the vehicle.

The result of this is sometimes different screw types used on the front and rear of the car. If your vehicle is like this, no problem!

Either stop by any hardware store and ask them to check the sizes of your front and rear plate screws, or contact us and we'll help you figure out what you need!
