How to Attach Number Plates to Your Vehicle

Fixing new number plates to your vehicle is a straightforward process. You can either use screws or double-sided sticky pads designed especially for the purpose. You may expect double-sided sticky pads to be less durable but they are very strong and remain an excellent choice for number plate application. Watch the short videos below for a step-by-step guide.

Please Note: replacement number plates come without holes for screws. This is because all vehicle makes and models are different and there is no standardised position for screw holes.

The Screw Method

Pros

  • Easily removable
  • Strong fixing to the vehicle

Cons

  • Requires a drill
  • More time consuming

The Sticky Pad Method

Pros

  • Quick
  • No drill required

Cons

  • Once affixed, it's difficult to remove without bending or snapping the plate
