    Brian James just gave me some elastic bands.

    Works fine on the existing plate.

    they work a treat but i lost a plate using them.

    you need to file a notch in the top and bottom of the plate to correspond with the clips otherwise the plate will vibrate off the end of the clips.

    i also fitted a short wire to the trailer with a minuture dog clip at the other end and a hole in the plate....if it does come off you dont loose it.

    My solution?

    I removed car number plate and drilled two more holes in it an mounted 2 number plate bolts pushed through from the back.

    Re-installed plate on car so I now have two studs protruding slightly.

    I mount the trailer number plate on these studs and secure with two small nuts.

    Remove two nuts by hand, remove toad plate, store nuts back on studs.

    Seeeemples :Smile:

    Toad car I bought the other day with a van had those spring clips on, never moved in 200 miles getting back to Robertsbridge!

    Came back home in the toad!
