Hmm, I just put the snap plate on yesterday but I like this one better. That ghosted "wall" that shows up on the screen is a little annoying.

Anyone else get one of these plate holders
https://www.brainexplodermerch.com/product-page/rivian-tow-hook-license-plate

Anyone else worried about this scratching up the mounting point? Worried about nothing?
I have one, haven't used it yet as i don't have my plates.

But definitely not worried about scratching the tow hook. I don't think that will happen as the mount looks to be 3D printed PETG, and even if it does scratch it, it's the tow hook on a truck, so there's that.

If I get bored today maybe I'll yank a plate off another car to mount it up and take a photo (and to see if it actually works or if I need to return it).

Agree its a tow hook / truck but maybe I can find a small rubber pad.

Some people complain about that one being visible (ghosting?) in the front camera.
oh interesting. In the video, they mention that it is only visible from the 360 degree view of the vehicle.

Here’s mine. Uses the provided Rivian front mounting plate. Does not block any of the sensors / cameras. And best of all, the mount only costs $12 for 2 :)

Yes, only shows up in 360 view. It’s fine, doesn’t bother me…can use the proximity sensor just to double check how close you are to hitting wall etc in garage.

I just pretend I have a snowplow attached in 360 view with my Snapplate. 🤣

Got one and will be putting it on this weekend when I have time. Temp tags to October so no rush for me - tolls and parking ticket avoidance...

This doesn't block the front sensors for you? I have the same setup and moved the plate about 3 times now, each time partially blocking front sensor when in Drive and causing a lot of unwanted beeping. Where exactly are the sensors in front?

no blocking for me. Looking at your photo it looks like you’re using 2 mounts? I’m using just 1 which means my plate will be positioned further left to yours.

Correct, I’m using two. I’ll try moving it a bit further to the left tomorrow and see what happens.
