Automatic Front Retractable Plate Frame - VIDEO

Wanted to share the plate frame I recently installed on my car. This way I don't need to drill any holes in my front bumper and I can drive around with no plates in the front. When parked I just take it out to avoid getting any parking tickets.

Enjoy

We do slightly cut the mesh to make it fit properly, but those mesh grilles aren't expensive if you are looking into replacing it.

Can you drive with it out as well? I would do the opposite, drive out so no ticket, then retract... Sick little gizmo.

PS, where was this post last week before they drilled mine!?? Lol

Does it come out automatically when you hit the park button?

Live in Atlanta where thankfully front plates aren't required, but that is awesome. Very clean.

How does it perform on high speeds when it's out ? Does the motor and the holding frame can keep up with the power of wind ?

I actually very interested in it , to hide the plate before the speed camera shot. Just how good can it perform the operation on 50-100km/h with front wind.

It will be nice if the mystery about the product stops and they are clear about it....

wind pressure keep the plate against the bumper ... no issue there
the track is glued/sticked to the underside of the bumper ... no issue with the wind there, but the only thing is gravity overtime.

you shouldn't worry too much, this aint magic or real science.

Neat little gadget !

I wonder if there is room under the regular bumper, as opposed to the M-sport.
