CravenSpeed Platypus License Plate Mount for Mercedes Benz GLC | 2016-2020 | No Drilling | Installs in Seconds | Made of Stainless Steel & Aluminum | Made in USA
✔ IMPROVE THE LOOK OF YOUR MERCEDES: This is not a one size fits all. We tested hundreds of configurations on vehicle models to fit the exact model of your Mercedes Benz GLC (2016-2020). The Platypus fits your bumper like it was meant to be there.
✔ EASY TO REMOVE: 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, leaving no trace that it was ever there.
✔ NO DRILLING, NO RISKS: 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.
✔ BUILT TO LAST FOREVER: The Platypus plate is machined from 6061 aluminum with a durable black powder-coat finish that will not rust, fade, or bend.
✔ MADE IN USA: Each Platypus is made here in the US of A. They are machined and powder-coated in good ol' Portland, OR. Even the boxes are made here!
Details: The Platypus mounts to the tow hook eye that is hidden on your bumper. Now you can install a front license plate onto your brand new car or aero kit with no drill required. This tow hook mounted plate is also easily removable for track days and shows; it takes less than 5 minutes to install, and even less to remove with the included low profile wrench.
This is true American made stuff and will last forever! The stud is 6061 aluminum (Read: plenty strong but still softer than the frame of the vehicle so that it cannot damage anything.) The studs for our plate mount are designed over-sized so that they do not vibrate loose, and you will want (NEED!) tools to install it. The plate backing is 12 gauge steel that is treated and powder coated to prevent rust and color fading. It has enough thickness to make it completely solid (ordinary humans cannot bend the plate backing with by hand), but once installed you will be able to adjust the angle of the tab with just your hands. The included hardware is all stainless steel, with button heads for a clean look once installed.
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.
NOTE: The included hardware is just the right length for a plate, and not long enough to also mount a plate frame. Contact CravenSpeed for longer bolts or specs for your friendly local hardware supplier.
