Description

Install your front license plate WITHOUT drilling holes in your bumper! This ingenious PLATYPUS PRO SERIES license plate bracket 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.

Fits the following models:

2014-2020 F56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop
2015-2020 F55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop 4-Door
2016-2021 F57 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertible
2016-2020 F54 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Clubman

NOTES:

  • The Bracket for the F-Series is offset to the side in order to avoid covering the fog lights.
  • If you have the Front Parking Sensors or Rallye Lights, select the 'Rally / Driving Lights version which includes an extension arm for clearance.
  • Different product for models with the factory Rally / Driving Lights - select accordingly.

New and Improved design with:

  • Threads built into the plate making it easier to attach the license plate 
  • The whole plate has steel backing so that it does cannot be bent 
  •  The plate is angled to match the bumper 
  •  Only 7-pieces in the kit to greatly simplify installation (the plate and 2 pieces of hardware, and 4 screws for the plate)

Fits Right and Will Not Alarm your PDC Sensors

We have designed and tested hundreds of configurations on many current vehicle models and trim levels, this is not a one size fits all system. The model for your vehicle will sit tight to the bumper so that is looks like it was meant to be there, and it will also avoid setting off the sensors on your bumper (if you are having a sensor issue, you may need an extension arm to offset the Platypus - contact us and we will resolve it!) Although it will sit close, the sturdy plate backing will not scratch your bumper no matter how you drive.

Tough Construction and Rigid Design, Made in the USA!

The 12 gauge steel Plate Backing is full sized so that the edges of your license plate do not get bent in a car wash or otherwise. That plate has a black powdercoat baked on that will last forever. The Stud is lathe 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,  if you would like to install a plate frame you will need a longer set of hardware.
