Fold down license plate bracket

Postby Ron Shaw » Tue Jun 19, 2007 6:39 pm

I goofed up by placing my tail lights a little close to the trailer. I left enough room for a small tag, and in KY a camper's tag is as big as an automotive plate. :( Image So I decided to make one that would fold down while not on the road. Plus it needed to be lighted. :thinking: :twisted: So here is what I came up with. Here it is in the up position for travel.Imagemg]And here it is in the down position.ImageHere are two close up's, so if anyone out there may need a foldable plate bracket here is a possible solution.ImageThis one is from the bottom, looking up.Image Sorry but I guess one cannot glean much from this last photo. But then again who knows. I know, I know, I need a little practice with this tex and photo's thing. :? :?

That's a cool idea. Most folks would have just found a way to attach it to the hatch, and jury rigged the wiring. You did a nice job!

:applause: Great idea! For the photo's and text thing, just push "end" and then return and it will take you to the next line without messing up the Img. ;) I skip a line so it is easier to read.

Ron... You sure did a fine job on that folding tag bracket. That thing is beefy enough you could attach a folding down table to it! :thumbsup:

Hey thanks folks. I just made is from some 1" scrap sq. tubing I found laying around. So it is pretty stout. Thanks again :D
