No-Drill Front License Plate Mounts/Brackets are BACK!! - fits 1998-2015!

We've re-designed the license plate brackets for the Forester.









For those of you who haven't seen them before, these brackets are designed to fit in the stock bumper mounting locations (pre-molded holes for the JDM plate fitment), so you don't have to drill self-tapping screws into your bumper. These are now a much lower profile design, covered by the license plate itself with no visible bracket hanging over.

We're offering the bracket kits with hand-brushed finish for $45, and unfinished (de-burred and tumbled only if you'd like to add your own finish) for $30. Prices include all necessary hardware and USPS Priority Mail shipping.

We also ship to Canada - please PM for shipping costs!

Representing the developers of the finest accessories for the Forester platform!!

Moved this back in from Vendor Announcements.

They have sold quite a few. And pretty sure they have some in stock now.

Getting ready to order a new batch as we've run really low on these.
Pre-order before the 10th of January, and we'll ship to you for free.

Please feel free to support our Subaru parts vendors here.

New batch of license plate mounts is in now - available for all years! As always, the brackets are made from aluminum, offered in hand-brushed finish at this time, and include all mounting hardware. $39.95 shipped via USPS Priority Mail (plus $2.89 tax in CA). Please allow 2-3 days for turnaround because I literally finish these bad boys by hand! Any questions, please ask!

Hi guys... I have 2 confessions: 1) this is my first post here and 2) I don't own a Forester.

But bear with me... I registered here because I'd like to find out if these brackets would work with a 2011 WRX. I've been trying to find a non-bumper-drilling alternative to mount my front plate. I've had it mounted with a set of the Totsubo brackets - but the 3M/whatever tape started coming loose and moving around on me. And the screws attaching the plate to the brackets decided to seize up.

I actually like this bracket better than those mounts for its one piece design. So the question then, do you know if it would actually fit? And if it would... can I buy one? :)

Bought this and received it the other day. Installed it yesterday. Word of caution: instructions say to try to hold the nut through the slim opening underneath the grill. Easier said than done as I have big hands. I used A magnetic pickup tool through the openings in the front, position it, and then hold it by the tips of my fingers while I threaded the screw. Whew. Looks great though. Fine craftsmanship. Kudos!

Yes, they will fit any Subaru! I recently sold one to a guy with a 2011 STI. Send me a PM if you'd like to purchase and I'll get you set up.
