Mazda MX-5 Miata Front License Plate Mount

The Platypus is a front license plate bracket that is made in the USA to exacting specifications. It is one of the best Mazda MX-5 Miata accessories for keeping your license plate holder legal with no drilling required.


In many states, you need a front plate on your Mazda, but that does does not mean you have to drill it in permanently. The Platypus is designed to fit the existing port on the front bumper of the MX-5 Miata for model years years from 2006 to 2015. This method of installing the front plate is common and legal in all states that require front license plates. At times when the plate is not needed, it can be removed easily, leaving no trace that it was ever there.

Quick Release

We believe that touchless is the only kind of automatic car wash anyone should subject their Mazda’s paint job to. If you absolutely need to use a rag car wash, then the Platypus should be removed to avoid getting caught up in the machine. We have planned for this. Using the included stainless steel flat wrench you can loosen the bolt a quarter turn and then slide the plate off before the wash. This takes less than a minute. Although we have never had a plate backing come loose accidentally, each plate backing is balanced such that if it did the plate would hang and not fall off.

Exact Fit for Your Mazda

This is not a one size fits all system. After a decade of experience fitting hundreds of models and trim levels this is our exact fit front plate bracket for a 2006-2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata. The Platypus is exceptionally stable because we do not build in the adjustability that more universal kits require.

The placement of this Platypus kit will avoid triggering the PDC sensors on your Mazda. At most, you will need to manually adjust the angle of the plate once installed to ensure the whole plate is out of the sensors view.


The black powder-coated mounting plate is the full size of your license plate and includes stainless steel button head screws that look excellent.

The stud portion is machined from 6061 aluminum and black anodized. We make the studs at the high end of the receivers tolerance, that way the stud fits tight and stays put while you drive (this means that the stud will not go in without a wrench, like the stock tow hook does).

The hardware provided is the exact length for your plate mount and will not stick through the back to scratch your bumper,
