I never wanted to drill the front bumper and didn't want my front plate on a tow hook attachment off to the side.

So I tried this and it works. I bought this from Amazon and zip tied it upside down.

I bought Zip Ties from the local hardware store, 6" to 8" just to make it easier to wrap it around.

Then I cut off the ends and tucked the ends in.

So, there is some obvious play at the top, but the bottom is secured vertically and horizontally. No drills. No tape.

Fortunately it came out even side-to-side and covers up most of the original placement as if it were drilled.

I went the extra mile and bought silicone plate frames at this link

I like this a lot, I did something similar on my Tesla. There are people on Etsy and eBay selling a "kit" for like $8 that has two bolts with long plates behind them - might be an option for this as an alternative to the zip ties.
