This "No Holes" License Plate Bracket (LPB) does not require you to drill into your front bumper. Instead, it utilizes a custom machined bolt that screws into the existing towhook hole. All parts are made from Stainless Steel to ensure no rust. The mounting hardware utilizes nylock nuts which will not loosen from vibration. The plate attachment screws are button head socket cap screws for a nice clean look.
NOTE: The No Holes LPB kit includes a 10mm spacer and additional washers to extend the length of the mounting bolt for those models requiring additional clearance. The 2011+ models and JCW models will require the use of these additional items.
The Vertical Adjustment Bars allows 6 vertical positions that you can mount your plate. The bolt length is 2-5/8" overall.
For another option, see G2NMX7307.
What's the difference between this 'No Holes' NMA2501 unit and the 'PLATYPUS' G2NMX7300 unit?
We get this question asked a lot - functionally, they both work very well. Many people make their selection based on their personal preference for the material and finish - Powdercoat Black vs. Stainless Steel. Either way, they are both great products.
Mini Mania: Thank you for posting your comments!
We checked with the manufacturer, and this was their response:
In all of the hardware packs it has a blue (or pink) slip of paper that explains the need to lubricate the nylock nuts before trying to install them. It is VERY important to do this so they do not seize. In fact we even include 2 extra nuts and bolts for customers that have them seize before reading the piece of paper. We get a customer every once in a while that calls or emails us with this same issue but it is very rare. Maybe 1 out of every several hundred kits.
