    heavy duty license plate bracket

    so my plstic one broke yesterday but i was able to recover my plate. anyone have a billet or galvanized one? i found one on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/BOAT-TRAILER...a38233&vxp=mtr but it may not be here fast enough.

    i can get a plastic one as a temp holder though.

    I attached the aluminum backing plate to the trailer frame above with a heavy duty stainless steel door hinge. It hangs down when driving, but I can swing it forward and up out of the way when I want to tip the nose of the trailer up. I have a rare-earth magnet attached to the underside of the trailer frame, and a small metal disc screwed onto the back of the aluminum plate assembly. When I want it out of the way I flip it forward and up and it stays up until I release it from the magnet.

    Much tougher than OEM plastic plate bracket, and being able to flip the plate up when not on the road keeps it out of trouble.

    The hinge is arranged so that when down and driving forward the plate doesn't flap in the breeze - it stays hanging straight down at speed.

    Was behind a member on here while trailering and watched as his plate flew off at 40mph because his zip ties failed. Moral of the story is secure your shit!

    One of the only good things about the MN nanny state is it's a no plate state for trailers.
