Keep the security wrench in a safe place so you can remove the screws to change plates.
When gas prices are high
(and don't fool yourself—they will be again!), nasty
people have been known to
steal someone else's license
plates, fill their own cars with gas,
drive off without paying and let the
gas station cameras capture the stolen
license plate number. Install a set of
security screws to stop the crooks
before they get their sticky fingers on
your plates. The screws are cheap, easy to install and available in
a style to fit your vehicle. The kits
come with a security wrench; keep it
in a safe place so you can change
plates when they expire.
