Looking for a place to mount your license plate that looks right after installing your new winch? Had a winch for a while and worry about losing your front license plate on the trail? The EZ-Flip license plate bracket easily mounts on your winch roller fairlead. Once upright, corrosion resistant stainless steel springs hold it in place. After winch use, simply lower the plate and snap the clips onto the rollers. Sturdy stainless steel construction encompasses both the bracket and hardware. Marine grade clips provide rattle free connection to the rollers. Fits all winch roller fairleads with front rollers approx. 8-3/4" center to center. Includes all current full size roller fairleads supplied by WARN, Ramsey and Mile-Maker.(Does not work with Smittybilt Roller Fairleads)
Good product but on my set up the wench line interferes with one of the clips
4.0Good product, good quality
I'm moving to Virginia, and they require displaying of the front plate. This is a good option, as oposed to the non-flip products out there. My only gripe is that you cannot use with the "Daystar" isolator, as the clips cannot make contact with the rollers. Other than that, this is a must for those who don't want to attach your plate with zip ties, or drilling holes in your expensive aftermarket front bumpers. If you can afford a High dollar front bumber and winch, you can afford to finish it off with this product.

5.0Flip up, not off
The flip up license plate holder is a great idea and a great product. I would recommend it to others. It is a great solution to the problem of where to put the front license plate once a winch is installed. Installation was easy, even though there were no instructions included. It is fairly obvious how to put it on.

5.0Holds plate, keeps you legal
In AK, we are required to run a front plate. We got the Iceland Offroad winch bumper for my fiance's ZJ, but she didn't want the plate on the bumper anywhere. I considered the MagLite holder method to put it on the fairlead, but I've seen people leave their plate on the trail that way, and it also makes it easy to steal the plate. The flip-up bracket, with included stainless allen hardware, means that you won't forget your plate and any would-be thief needs either A) two sets of snap ring pliers (because you're going to bend one set), or B) and normal wrench AND an allen wrench.
I currently have an EZ flip license plate holder that 4x4 parts installed on my SmittyBuilt fairlead. it has been damaged in an accident and needs to be replaced. I went on your site and see a warning it does not fit Smittybilt. The space between bolts is 8 1/4in Smaller than required. How did your shop install this? Since I have moved you have no shop with 150-200 miles. What can you recommend? Is there an alternative flip product for SmittyBilt fairlead.
Answer this question
I am shure that the shop redrilled the upper mount bracket and redrilled the lower mounting plate to fit the Smittybilt roller fairlead. If you did not want to due that then
maybe consider the Smittybilt part number S/B4432 it is a clip on style. The Rockhard
Products part number RFPRH-4006-F is a clip on style with a cabled lanyard for security.
