      Review & Installation Video

      Hey I’m Justin with and I’m checking out these flip down license plate holders, available either motorized or manually operated, fitting all 79 and newer Mustangs. If you live in one of the many states that burden your ride with the unsightly front license plate, I totally feel your pain, not only is it not very attractive, but it also forces you to drill holes into your front bumper cover which is never a good thing. This flip down license plate holder is a great way to hide that front plate whenever you’re at a car show or your next spy mission, and is available in 2 different options: a motorized version that operates with the simple touch of a button, or a more budget friendly manual version. Both options mount to the underside of the front bumper but ultimately it’s up to you to decide where you’d like to place the kit. As you can see on our 2013 GT behind me we had the kit installed dead center on our front bumper. I have seen some of our customers install it on either the left or right side which does look good as well. Depending on which option you decide to go with your install time may vary slightly, for instance the manual version requires no wiring whatsoever, therefore you can expect to get that one done in about 30 minutes, on the other hand the motorized version does require a small amount of wiring in addition to the small work needing to be done underneath the car, therefore you can expect to spend about an hour on that one. Either way, if you should need any help whatsoever, you can always reference the detailed instructions on this product page. Even though Johnny Law may require a front plate in your state doesn’t mean you have to display it all the time, right? Well, if you’re looking for a cool way to hide that front plate at your next show, be sure to check out one of these flip down licence plate holders right here at

        1 2011 GT - SoonerGT Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        Cheap material

        The concept is great, since no one wants to drill into their bumper. Due to the placement to allow the license plate to fully extend, the mount sits a little bit past the bumper, not by much but if you tap a curb ever so soft the bracket will bend. I have gone through two in the last couple of months. When I mean barley tap, I mean pull up to the curb inching up and barley tapped and it broke. Additionally it the metal roll pin rubs against metal creating friction as the license plate retracts and extends. Needs work but only one on the market.

        1 2015 GT - 5OhGabe Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        Didn’t last a day

        It’s not reliable it comes out and goes in when ever it feel like working. Install it around 5pm yesterday and went to car meet with my crew. Came back home at 1am and it didn’t want to work anymore. Wires got tangle doesn’t come out anymore. Didn’t even last half a day. I bought this product on American muscle hoping it wasn’t the show and go. However, it ended up being the show and go. Very disappointed ! Negative 5 stars for me! 150 bucks just so it won’t last half a day great......

        SpeedForm Flp Down not worth the money

        This is not hard to install, but it's not a custom's a universal fit. You need to drill your own holes underneath the front spoiler and run the wires to your battery. The remote red light indicator broke off, but still works. The motor is powerful of sliding the license plate in and out, but in time rust starts to set in even though you protect the motor with the rubber cover and lubricating the traction wire. I would recommend getting the manual version versus the motorized version flip down licenses plate holder.

        1 2008 GT - Mustang Installation Time: Afternoon

        Failed after the first day

        So, I was so excited to install this James Bond license plate holder on my 2008 Mustang California 45th Anniversary Special. So when I recieved it and the instructions were more for a corvette I was troubled but not discouraged. The installation had to be modified considerably, as none of the mounting instructions matched. Ok, so no problem there, I am quite good at working on my car so, I got it installed and bam! looked good worked...Great. The next day, I went to show a friend, and the plate would go down, but would not come back up. Got under the car and the spool had completely unwound. Not only that but the plate is completely loose, and bounces against the bumper. Not cool. So I spent 89 extra bucks for power plate that doesn't work.

        Not Worth the $

        Extremely fragile. The first time you accidentally scrap a curb or parking bumper it's out of alignment and will either have trouble retracting or it will retract and not deploy again. Stick with the non motorized license plate frame.

        Electronic License Plat

        This is great fun. Everyone askes how did I get by so long without one of these. It works great, but stutters a little bit when coming out. I would buy it again. Ideal to protect the art work on my license plate when I park in strange places.

      After a few times of the license plate folding out like it should it would go very slow and the plate would come almost all the way out then before it flips up it will just stop as if it lost power. How do I fix this problem?

      • I am sorry to hear about the issue you are facing. It sounds to me like the motor for the license plate holder is not getting the amount of power it should be getting right now. I would go back and check all of your connections and try to test the amount of power getting to the motor.

      So there are a couple of questions that contradict each other here about the 2016-17 GT/CS splitter. One answer says it will clear and another answer, along with the product description says it won't clear. I'm assuming I should follow the product description but if this will fit my 2016 CS, based on one of the answers, I'm going to get one. 1 answer
