Plate Covers/Frames

There are many different types of number plate frames and covers on the market. Most car dealers use some sort of cheap frame to advertise their dealership on your vehicle.

This would be acceptable, IF they at least chose something of reasonable quality which ADDED to your car's value, rather than detracted from it. (You may not be aware that most of the frames used by the dealerships cost them less than $1.00 each!)

However, there ARE good quality covers available. They cost more than the cheapies but they are well worth the investment.

How to order Covers & Frames:

Our range of covers and frames are listed by number plate size/style. Hover over the "Other Products" menu item and click on "Covers & Frames" - see image below.

I carry the full range of Kingpin Prestige Number Plate Covers.

  • These covers are legal in all states and territories in Australia. (Click here to view approval documents.)
  • They are a one-piece, UV stabilised High Impact Acrylic moulding. They are robust, the lenses won't yellow with age and the black surround maintains it's gloss for many years.
  • They have a neoprene seal around the inside edge of the cover which fits against the raised rim of the number plate to help keep out dirt and moisture.
  • They fit particularly well with our black powder-coated Custom Plate Brackets.

The Kingpin Covers are listed for purchase here.

See below for details and images of the different styles of cover I keep in stock.

Standard size (372mm x 134mm) and
Standard Width Slimline (372mm x 100mm):


These covers attach through the four holes in the corners of the number plate.


Slimline 5 character (315mm x 100mm) and
Slimline 3/4 character (250mm x 100mm):


These covers clip under the lower edge of the number plate and are screwed through the holes along the top edge of the number plate at 210mm centres. In some cases these same holes are used to attach the number plate to the vehicle.


If these are self-tapping screws, you'll find matching screws in the fitting kit supplied with each cover. If these screws are M6 machine thread screws going into special threaded fittings on your vehicle, you'll need our special "Piggy Back" screws. These are available here.
