Hi everyone,

I have recently designed my own custom toe hook license plate holder using type 316 stainless steel and Delrin plastic. I was wondering if any of you would be interested in customizing a holder to your own liking (with your own choice of materials).

I am open to suggestions and would charge materials fee + shipping + a labour fee (depending how long it takes to design).

PM for images as they are too large for upload!

Best,
Andrew

There are at least two products on the market that do exactly this and do it well.. Not sure we need another unless it is really cheap, say under $40

Hey Sejzilla,

I recall Stillen sells it too but I am not sure of the price. If you're on a low budget and can't find anything else let me know! I'd be happy to help.

Best,
Andrew

Stillen, RHO are the two that I know of. Just recently purchased a Stillen one myself. Stillen is priced about $100 (including their handling fee), RHO is about $60 I think.

Andrew, in the last picture it looks like it's a little too high and I can't tell from the pictures but it looks like the back of the bracket is awfully close to the bumper. Otherwise it looks pretty good. Stillen is a little pricey, but I have seen little complaints about the product. RHO plate is cheaper but I think some people were having problems with it seizing up in the towhook hole due to the material used.

Hi Chad,

Thanks for the compliment!

The pictures don't do justice to what I see in person. The back plate is actually a decent distance away from the bumper since it isn't the same dimensions as the license plate. I made it so that the plate is wide enough for the holes to be drilled and no further. Even at high speeds the Delrin plastic does a great job holding it in place as compared to thinner sheet metal.

I realize the issue with the seizing: I suspect that the material used is lower grade stainless steel and the thread used was too tight, causing the material to forge together. I used a slightly looser thread gauge and applied some lubricant to prevent the seizing so it wouldn't be an issue if I had to remove it.

The reason I even bothered making this myself is because a cop gave me a ticket for not having a front license plate so I rushed a design and just got it on there. I'm making some changes to the design already though.

Thanks again!

Best,
Andrew
