    Hello all,

    Today my mother noticed that her license plate was stolen so i was wondering what any of you might have for screws/bolts/plates or etc that you might use to keep your plates safe on your vehicle. She just got the plate in April of this year and will have to buy a new one which is very annoying and I want to try and make sure it doesn't happen again, either it being her car, my car, my girlfriends car, etc.

    I was kind of looking for something that wasn't... "normal" Something actually ingenuitive. I have a kit that can take every single last one of those "security" screws off as if I were using a phillips/flathead screwdriver and I obviously wouldn't want to use a one way screw even though that seems like the toughest choice so far.

    Razor blades strategically placed and jb welded to the back side of the lic plate bracket /holder . The moment the thug that wants your moms plate he'll think twice after he's in the ER getting his fingers stitched up

    I did somewhat the same thing to my old CJ5 Jeep . I kept getting my stereo stolen so I JB welded numerous razor blades to the back of the stereo . a few weeks later I walked out to my jeep and saw blood all over the floor and dashboard and stereo was still there . So I took that as a good sign my security measure worked fine

    I BORROWED some spanner screws from work, it has two holes in the head, we used them at the Auto Show to keep the plates from walking away.

    Well i can't really do the razor blade one but good story. lol

    I guess the spanner pan screw is less common than the torx and hex heads, but I have a feeling they wont be that hard to remove either... or they might be hard remove. I have it in my kit of bits but never ran across one.

    There is no real security. If someone really wants it they will take it.

    Around here, a plate in the back window gets you a citation for "improper display of plate". Put it on the car where the law requires and take your chances. If you have a lot of plate theft where you live, it is time to move to a safer place.
