Unlike the other removable or hide away brackets out there, our all new 2015-17 S550 GT, V-6, EcoBoost, GT/California Special and GT350/GT350R "No Drill" front license plate bracket is absolutely that, "No Drill". Don't get sucked in by the gadget type hide away type claims of the other bracket options on the market. This is the best option, hands down!
* Made in the USA from non-corrosive metal (aluminum and stainless steel)
* Light weight
* Quickly and easily removable for car shows and cleaning
* Places the license plate on the center of the bumper where it was intended to be mounted.
* The 3M tape will not leave any sticky residue if/when you decide to completely remove it.
*CAUTION: Not recommended for install over vinyl stripes or clear bra type material.
The bracket that holds the license plate is laser cut from 16ga plate stainless steel (NOT PLASTIC) weighing in at only 7 oz. with the license plate attached. It has rubber bumper protection in place, to prevent vibration and so no metal part of the bracket never touches the painted portion of the car and comes with nylon fasteners to attach the license plate with.
The mounting base is 6061 Billet Aluminum machined mounting base. It comes with a custom knurled thumb nut used to fasten the license plate bracket to the mounting base. The mounting base is attached to the bumper cover, out of sight, using 3M 4910 VHB (Very High Bond) adhesive tape, some of 3M's strongest bonding tape on the market. This VHB tape will bond despite extreme ground-to-air temperature swings of 194°F to -30°F (90°C to -35°C) and support up to 90 lbs/in2. This bracket has 3 square inches of tape that adheres.
The all new attachment design was tested at various stages. It was initially tested by mounting the base to a painted surface with the bracket attached and we let it sit for a week; it didn't move. Then we hung 10lbs of weight off the mounting base with the bracket attached and let it sit for a week; it didn't move. Then we hung 41lbs of concrete off the mounting base; it didn't move (see video). Then we mounted it on a 2015-17 Mustang GT, took it up to 100mph (for a short period of time) using the 3M tape mounting option; it didn't move. The mount is tested and proven and under no circumstances requires any additional screws to hold it in place. We did not test this mount with any heavy metal style license plate frames, only plastic frames and covers.
Here is a link to a test video we did on the mounting base and it's ability to hold weight:
This bracket is very low profile and can hardly be seen when mounted. It places the license plate exactly where it is intended to be placed, not under the front splitter where it gets ripped off by curbs, steep driveways or when you forget to put it up before driving. The mounting base can be installed in minutes and the license plate bracket installed and removed in seconds using our quick release thumb nuts. If you want a more permanent attachment, you can use a 1/4 x 20 nylon locking type nut and washer.
A lot of thought went into this bracket to make it the best option on the market for 2015-21 S550 Mustang owners and I know you won't be disappointed. Thank you for choosing Craig's Custom Mustang Brackets as your option for a "No Drill" front license plate holder.
