Hey guys I've been trying to keep up with request. I’ve also found a quality fabric that I can purchase wholesale and a new person to make them. I can sell the new holders at $15 plus $3.85 shipping via USPS Priority. I accept payments via Pay Pal .:thumbsup:.

As for the Law. In California the jam will be the fact that the holder can "swing" out of view:eviltongu . I took a poll of "FELLOW" police officer opinions regarding the holder. Most say that they wouldn't write a cite if it was in view. I even had a Sgt. who said that he would sign off a cite with the holder. As for CHP/Traffic/Motorcycle officers it's a case by case basis with these guys.

The cool part is that it's "almost" (able to meet most elements of code except one) legal. It's just the "Swing thing". I also found out that officers interpreted the 5200 CVC section in different ways. Some thought it had to be affixed to a front bumper, "No it needs to be attached to the front of the vehicle". Some thought my holder was over 60 inches, "No its approx 46 inches from the ground". Then it's the swing out of view issue, "I told them isn't that an interpretation issue." They responded, "You're probably right". I'm not going down easy and I will continue to research this to see if I can get around the 5200 section.

I'm mostly looking out for guys with no front plate and a plate wedged between their window and dash. It looks a lot better and you stand a good chance of not getting jammed by cops with this holder in view. If you have nothing you're free game for the hunt. If you currently have a front plate and want to remove it to use my holder, It's a call "YOU" have to make. I can't tell you it's all good until I see how officers on the street will react. It will not hurt to tell them it was designed by a cop :bigthumb: .

Can you still get a ticket with this holder? "Yes". Do you stand a better chance of NOT getting a ticket using this holder? "Yes". Do you stand a better chance of a judge "possibly dismissing" your ticket using this holder? "Yes"

I'm not going to lie to you guys to make a sale. If you want one PM me......L8SHIFT

I'll see if E-police NJ can find out the NJ laws and possibly NY laws for front plates. I thought this was a GREAT idea for those of us who dont have front plates. I'll be picking one up soon myself. But for a custom vanity plate. :all_cohol

I've asked a local town cop about this ... he told me that according to NY law you CANNOT display your front plate in the windshield OR on your visor.

but if most of you drive with tints and are thinking about taking your plate off, anyway ... who cares?? lol All the other shit on your car is illegal anyway
