BEFORE YOU START

This is a great time to clean the area behind your plate before starting the installation, and to clean the license plate itself of any debris.

  • Peel the paper from the rubber spacers, revealing the adhesive.

  • Align spacers with mounting holes and stick to back of license plate to prevent vibration and protect the vehicle.

  • If you’re vehicle only allows for 2-hole mounting, insert rubber plate bumpers into the lower holes.
