In the last two weeks, my rear license plate has been literally falling off the truck. It is still screwed into what I believe are the the two brackets that hold the plate in place. I'm unsure if I have a broken bracket or if it has just worn out? I've attached a picture for reference. Luckily, the plate gets caught by the tow hitch so I don't lose it completely.
Any thoughts on what others have done to resolve this? I'm thinking of just wrapping some athletic tape on the brackets to make it a tighter fit, but I have a feeling I'll be doing that every few months, particularly when we get a lot of snow or rain.
Full disclosure: I've done a search for "rear license plate" and "rear plate bracket" and it gives me results of everything from rear view cameras, to license plate LEDs, to skid plate problems. If a thread with a discussion or even solution already exists, please send along (with my apologies for not being able to locate it myself).
