If you have a winch on your vehicle and your state requires a front license plate, here’s the solution! Tuffy’s Flip-up License Plate Holder allows your front license plate to attach firmly to your Hawse winch fairlead and flips out of the way when you need to use your winch. It’s made of durable 16 gauge steel instead of plastic like others on the market and includes hardware for attaching the license plate.
Does the plate stay up when flipped up? Is it possible to get the plate caught up in the winch line?
Answer this question
It will stay up fine , The only problem is It would not work on my truck winch with a steel cable roller fairlead , I would have had to make brackets to set it out far enough to clear the rollers . I put it on my Jeep winch which has the rope cable and a non roller fairlead . If it had enough mud or ice on the plate as to weight it down it could catch on a frayed cable , I mounted mine so the plate would fold down to use the winch , I keep my winch cable hook attached to the factory tow hook

As long as the screws are tight enough the it will stay wherever you put it
will the tuffy flip up license plate holder fit the pre-drilled holes on a FAB Fours Matrix bumper (Toyota Tundra 2020) there isn't any dimensions on width of holes that attach to the bumper???
Answer this question
This works with standard winch hawse fairleads with 10” center to center mounting holes.
