This gen 1 SnapPlate design is on closeout sale while supplies last. The height-adjustable gen 2 design is available here.
Rivian recently released a software update that significantly widens the front camera view to include the top of the bumper and factory license plate mount. Similarly, SnapPlates are also now visible on the front camera view with this version (see photos). Gen 2 adds height adjustment to move the plate out of sight, if desired.
Clean, minimal design blends perfectly with the Rivian front end

SnapPlate removable front license plate mounts install and completely remove in seconds. The clean, minimal design blends perfectly with the Rivian front end when it’s installed and leaves no unsightly hardware behind when it’s removed.
SnapPlates are designed, printed, and assembled in California by Rivian owners and fans. We strive to reduce our environmental impact by using recycled plastics that are Made in the USA and by using Prusa 3D printers to make strong parts with internal structures that optimize our use of plastics.
The idea for SnapPlate was born when one of our co-founders got a ticket for not having a front license plate the same weekend he bought a new 3D printer. As a self-proclaimed front-license-plate hater, he wanted something that was easy to install when traveling to areas that enforce front license plate use and easy to remove the rest of the time. None of the options available had every feature we wanted, so we made one…and then all our Tesla friends wanted one too.
SnapPlate attaches and removes in seconds and is:
Hanging a license plate off the front of the plastic grille is actually pretty dangerous for the grille and grille replacements are expensive. To make SnapPlate grille-safe, we designed it to break away if it is stressed by car washes, fender benders, vandals, etc. We know things happen, so we sell replacement parts for less than it costs us to make and ship them.
Each SnapPlate comes with:
One fully-assembled front license plate mount, ready for your license plate
Four black and four silver torx security screws for the plate
One black torx security screw to optionally secure it to the car
One torx security screwdriver to keep in the car
One zippered case to keep all the accessories tidy in your car
SnapPlate is perfect to:
Remove your plate for car shows
Install to avoid tickets while parked at a meter
Remove to clean your car at home or at a car wash
Install for toll-by-plate roads and bridges
Deter theft with torx security screws on the plate and mount
Install a temporary plate to support your favorite team on game day
Once installed, SnapPlate sits away from the paint and is strong enough to resist wind and weather without touching the bumper. Take care during installation to not touch the painted parts of the car.
SnapPlate has four latches that fit perfectly through and behind the grille openings to install, but then rotate to hold. They hold it firmly in place without stressing the plastic grille. It’s also flexible enough to not break the grille if it is accidentally pushed into the bumper.
SnapPlate is designed to minimize the loss of airflow to the radiator and is positioned to avoid active dampers.
SnapPlate positions the license plate close the factory location to avoid interfering with radar and ultrasonic parking sensors.
*SnapPlate won’t damage paint, block airflow to the radiator, or damage the grille when installed correctly and used under normal circumstances. In the event of an accident this product is not intended to provide protection to prevent vehicle damage and we are not liable for any damages to any vehicles, people, or any objects caused as a result of the use of this product.
Easy Installation and Removal in Seconds:
To install SnapPlate:
Push the right button to rotate the latches open
Line it up with the center of the grille
Plug it in
Push the left button to rotate the latches closed
Optionally, if you want additional security, use the included screwdriver to install the black security screw into the hole on the left side
To remove SnapPlate:
Remove the security screw, if you’re using it
Push the right button to open the latches
Nothing left behind
3D printing enables us to create a very strong product with an internal structure that is 90% air. That makes it strong while using far less plastic than other processes.
Injection molding is great for making millions of simple things, but it’s very expensive for small quantities of complicated things like this. If not for 3D printing, SnapPlate probably wouldn’t exist or it would cost much more.
SnapPlate in progress
One consideration of 3D printing is that the surface finish is different from injection molded parts. Since it makes the parts one layer at a time, it has some distinct features. Here some examples:
Layers – parts are printed one layer at a time
Layers near Security Screw Hole
Steps – the layers are visible as steps on slanted surfaces
Strings – fine, easily-removable strings are sometimes left behind
Fine Plastic Strings
Small Holes – where the printer changes layers
Hole from Layer Transition
What is your return policy?
If you’re not satisfied, you have 30 days to return SnapPlate for a full refund. See our returns and refunds policy for details.
What is the warranty?
We’ll give you 180 days to make sure it can hold up to your local weather. See our returns and refunds policy for details.
Can I use a license plate holder or frame with SnapPlate?
If the frame is 1/4″ (6mm) or less then the included 10mm screws will work fine. If you need longer, we have 16mm and 20mm available.
Are SnapPlates car wash safe?
Most touchless car washes are ok, but touch washes aren’t safe for this or any other aftermarket license plate mount. There’s just too much risk of damaging the plastic grille or bumper on the vehicle to not recommend removing it for all automated car washes. It’s one of the reasons we made SnapPlates quick and easy to remove, but if keeping it on for car washes is important to you, we can really only recommend the factory adhesive or screw mount for your vehicle. We know things happen though, so we offer low-cost replacement parts for everything we make. We’d much rather replace inexpensive SnapPlate parts than see a vehicle damaged.
If SnapPlate is so easy to remove, won’t it be easy to steal?
If someone knows enough to steal it, they should know that they’ll be staring at the front Sentry camera while they’re doing it, but if theft is a concern for you, just screw the included security screw into the hole in the side of SnapPlate to make it much harder to remove.
