Question License plate question

Another dumb question:

Do they make any type of locking screws or devices so douche bags can't steal your license plate?

Thanks.

You can try getting some tamper proof screws. Do a Google search for "security screws".

^^^^

I agree - there are all sorts of tamper proof things - pin-in-torx is common (which can be a problem, I guess), there's also pentadrive and a whole host of other hard to remove screws (the idea being to get one where tools are scarce, and it's otherwise hard to make it work)

Man, I wish someone would steal my front tag, it would give me an excuse not to have the annoyance of having one in front.

Thanks.
AutoZone and Advance has Security-Allen, Pep Boys has security Torx.

McMaster has All kinds of Security screws. The bit kit is like $30 at Sears.

I had someone steal my Autozone Domestic Market Adjustable Plate mount, and leave my plate on my hood. I was all WTFm8?
