Tamper-Resistant License Plate Screws

Here is an inexpensive way to make the license plate on your car harder to steal.

  • Will it make them theft-proof? Of course not.
  • Will it deter the majority of casual thiefs? You bet!

What follows is:

These screws are direct replacements for the #14 sheet metal screws my dealer installed.

Brownell’s gunsmith's Mag tip screwdriver set.

LSK-1—Basic License Security Kit

Bag containing 4 screws and the magnetic bit.

LSMS—The “el-cheapo” mag tip screwdriver.

You can probably find all these items cheaper. The screws and bits are a little tough to track down, but industrial hardware stores are a good starting point. My local Home Depot and local hardware stores did not have anything useful for this project.

If you do not want to chase around town or simply can not locate the parts easily I have several sets on hand.

You can order right from this form via PayPal ($3.00 shipping will be added) or click the "printable order form" button on the bottom of the page and slip it in the mail with a personal check or cashier/bank check.
