I have a stainless steel Arctic Cat vanity plate to go on my truck but need to find a way to secure it so it doesn't get stolen. It was a $60 plate but looks awesome lol

Behind the front bumper I can feel the knobs that the plate screws go into but not sure what I can put through them. I was thinking a stainless steel rivet or a black rivet etc.

For those who are curious, here's the plate. Looks better in person


Any ideas?

Thanks

LOL

If I was living out in Dildo and not St. John's, then I'd wouldn't worry about it :lol:

2 weeks ago someone stole a 1/4 bottle of Tire Shine out of the back of my truck. Who goes off with a 1/4 bottle of Tire Shine?? :ugh3:

If you live in Dildo, get self tapping screws.... get it? Ha!
And if the holes are a bit small have 'em reamed out in Dildo.

You can use some security screws like the ones sold here:
Awesome !!
I was not even worried about stolen plates, but for $10, I'm going to get a few of these kits.

:thumbsup:

Unfortunately, Ace Hardware has a plan to thwart that great idea. Anyone can go into their stores and buy

or Amazon if the Ace hardware is too far away from D....

Whether the Ace bit fits exactly or not I don't know, but the determined thief will find a way, with corporate America helping make his life easier.

Doyle...aka 000 (being the top speed of a Ski-Doo lol) I did in fact find a kit at Princess Auto for $2. It comes with 2 security bolts with the security bit allen key, and lock nuts. Even if one has the security bit, the nut will make it impossible to get it off without a wrench or socket :thumbsup:

No worries on hijacking the thread on the count of Dildo...its good for a laugh lol

Another name of a cottage area here in Newfoundland is Spread Eagle. No joke.
