Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Hi folks!

Besides having the Catloc and DNA marking kit via SelectaDNA on my CT200h. I'm also thinking about having more piece of mind via securing my number plates. 

So far I've seen either anti theft number plate screws or anti theft number plates that brake apart once tampered with. The main manufacturer of these I can find is Staymark Autoplates at https://staymarkautoplates.co.uk

Have any fellow Lexus owners had any experience of either of the above two options? 

Cheers LOC! :thumbs_up:

Should somebody criminal with tools actually want to take a particular plate they just cut around and take the metal/lastic it is glued on with them.. With a cutter it would take no more time than screwing a standard plate off.

if the security screws are like these then i wouldn't say they are that secure

https://www.halfords.com/motoring/car-security/richbrook-anti-theft-number-plate-bolts-794669.html

using a set of circlip pliers you could possibly loosen and remove the screws

or

using 2 small diameter drill bits 1 in each hole then a bar in between them to loosen the screws

I saw these Richbrook screws on amazon and Halfords and thought exactly the same Mark! 

Be interesting if anybody has had experience of the Staymark anti theft number plates or any other devices to prevent theft.

Not really worth it. It's much cheaper and easier to just get the number plate made online.

Many sellers don't require any ID as they claim to sell only "show plates" which are not technically road legal

So it's not worth securing one's number plate then at all???
