What is a License Plate Bracket and where is it Located?

Your license plate bracket, also referred to as a license plate mount, is what physically holds your license plate to your vehicle which, as you undoubtedly know already, is an important accessory as it is used to distinguish the vehicle from others. Most states require that cars have both a front and a rear license plate and so many cars come with front and rear license plate brackets. Others only require a license plate in the rear. Either way, the license plate attaches to the bracket and the bracket attaches to the bumper, proudly identifying your car as your own to the world.

How do I Know if my License Plate Bracket Needs to be Replaced?

As mentioned above, most states require you to display two license plates. Failure to do so can result in fines or a failed vehicle inspection. The same is true, of course, if you fail to display even one plate.  Fortunately, license plate brackets don’t contain a lot of fancy electronics or moving parts. They are made of plastic though, which can warp or crack over time. Since they are located on the exterior of your vehicle, they are constantly exposed to the elements and to hazards of the road, which can take eventually their toll. Accidents can also damage or break your license plate mounting bracket. If your license plate bracket is hanging off your bumper, or has broken off any of its fasteners then you’ll need to replace it to avoid legal trouble. 

Can I Replace a License Plate Bracket Myself?

Replacing a license plate mount should be no problem. You’ll have to remove your license plate, and then remove all the fasteners that hold on the bracket. Then pull off the bracket, put the new one in place, fasten it to the bumper and reattach your plate. When removing and installing the fasteners, you’ll want to be sure to tighten opposite fasteners one after the other to avoid warping the mounting bracket. You’ll also want to keep your old fasteners to reuse them, or make sure you have fasteners which are identical to the old ones.
