Just saw this. An alternative to Snapplate.

I e-mailed these guys some weeks ago as to when/whether they were taking orders. No response so far. Rivian Tow Hook License Plate Mount | brainexplodermerch Looking at my cart, doesn't look like it is currently a real product, one you can buy (update below):

I went ahead and got SnapPlate, but would rather have this. The SnapPlate impact on the front camera is livable, but annoying.

I went in, deleted my cart, and added it back. No longer shows up as pre-order:

Still bugs me that they never responded to my inquiry but I suppose I'll order one.

I like that. I just wish they had a single screw to put through the plate holder and their bracket. I suppose I can drill something into that part.

They do have the screw. I ordered two Thursdays ago and received it this past week.

Here's a picture of it.

I'll want to use a 'security screw', one with a less than usual head pattern. Probably overcautious on my part...

Looks pretty sweet, but would prefer if it had more than a snap holding it on. As ridiculous as it sounds, license plate theft is a real issue in my neck of the woods. Still don’t like the idea of drilling though, so maybe worth it…

I ordered one a while back and have it as I wait on my plate. Looked into other mounts for motorcycles and other things and just went with it ..
It exists.

I’ve had this mount on my truck for a couple of weeks. I haven’t noticed any difference with my sensors or camera.

As for worries about theft, I don’t think that will be a problem. There is a set screw that will lock the plate in so it can’t be unclipped. That being said, I tried the clip before I put on the plate and it came off fine. I could not get it to unclip again. Not at all. So if you want to unclip it for whatever reason it’s not going to happen if your clip is like mine. I don’t need to take mine off, but if I do it will be a full unscrewing situation.

How do you access the screw holding the plate in once the bracket is attached to the recovery hook? It seems like there isn't any room tool access.

I believe you would need to attach plate to bracket with screw first then attach bracket to tow hook with second screw (and long screwdriver) next.
