Tesla Model 3 Front License Plate Bracket (2nd-GEN "Touchless", NO Drill, NO Tape)


UPDATE: You guys sold us out! Next batch will be up for sale on May 1

We're calling this one "The Bandit": The leading Tesla front license plate bracket within the Model 3 owners' community, designed and CNC machined right here in California!

Teslarati has invested into the development of this 2nd-Generation front license plate bracket in partnership with 1975 Creations, who brought us the original Bandit.

Lighter, stronger and all-around sleeker in design, this "contactless" Tesla Model 3 front license plate mount doesn't require any drilling or double-sided tape like the intrusive factory mount.


(Also available for the Tesla Model  Y)

  • Easy bolt-on
  • Minimize obstruction of airflow to Tesla's battery thermal management system
