The frame comes with all of the hardware you will need. It easily mounts to your car. The cost is very reasonable.

Plate Keeper Installation

If you use the Plate Keeper bolts you can see how someone with vice gripe pliers can remove the bolt. This is why I used the Lock-um frame on this car. The bolt heads are installed under the locking mechanisms.

Plae Keeper Bolt Head

I was able to use vice grips on the bolt head to turn it out. I use the plate frame on one car and the Plate Keeper bolts on the other. They both provide a good degree of security and if a thief can't quickly remove a plate they will go to the next car in the lot. Of the two options this is the less expensive one.
