Receiver Mount License Plate Holder

So I got reminded by 2 cops to put my front plate back on. So this is what I came up with. Front plates are ugly but at least I can remove it whenever I want

Yea, I got away without the plate for a long time. But finally got stopped (got a tint ticket instead).

I think plates on the front are so ugly, but it's the law

Never thought of looking to see if someone sold something like this. I thought I was being original lol

ugh, you guys are stealing my idea!

i was gonna do the front receiver mod this year and make a removable plate holder to hide the hitch/ stay legal.

That works but it looks like I lot more work (and weight) than it needs to be. lol
I just bought a cheapo 2" receiver plug, screwed two new holes in my license plate and stuck it in with a lock.
