Side mounted License Plate WARNING!! It could have been bad.. very bad.

Soooo, I had my license plate mounted on the upper belt guard. It seems that the welded bracket that holds the rear bolt can't with stand the stress and will break.

Yesterday I was on my way out to work and noticed that the plate wasn't right. Grabbed a hold of it gave it a little shake (lightly)... and pop the bracket broke, just below the welded nut. I am glad that I saw before took it to work. I would have hated for it to break off, and get forced into the rear tire.

So everyone, that uses the belt guard, PLEASE CHECK YOUR BRACKETS.

I would hate to hear about someone getting hurt cause of this. I am in the process of fabbing another on and using the axel bolt. Does anyone know what size the bolt is like 19mm, 20mm, ect.. I don't have a set of calipers.

Thank in advance!

Thanks for the heads up , I'll leave mine for now but keep a eye on it , I have two bolts thur it so I fell pretty secure.
Mine is mounted to the upper belt guard one bolt thur the mounting hole and the second one thru the medal plate on the guard seems really secure no movement and its sideways horz.

Glad I didn't mount mine there like I originally wanted to. I mounted mine vertically to that bracket that sticks out right behind the passenger peg on the left-hand side.
The bracket that holds the top belt guard correct ?
