We have just bought a Toyota Avensis and noticed that if we put a standard MOGO plate bracket on it will need to have a huge overhang to miss the bumper. Where can I get a bracket to put the number plate and the PH plate side by side? Pitts don't do one.

Just get a number plate made to the same size as the plate, remove the other one, and screw both side by side using the number plate holes already there.

Not possible due to the shape and size of the space where the number plate is. There is a ridge in the way.

Can you not get a sticky plate?

Just use some foam backed double sided tape on the rider all around but still fix with the screws provided

Just get a peice of wood and screw the wood onto the number plate space then place then both side by side on the peice of wood, screw to attach. I hate them mogo brackets.

Tape won't last 5 minutes

The number plate is on the boot and there is not enough room to fit even a motorcycle plate because of a large lip at the bottom of the number plate that sticks out about 25 mm so there is no flat surface.

I was thinking about using some plastic sheeting about 25mm thick to space it out so that I can attach the plates to that.
