Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch License Plate Relocation Bracket Review

All right today, we're going to show you part number 5443. This is the license holder. Now our licence plate holder, is designed to work with instances where your front mount hitch actually goes into place where your licence is. Some vehicles licence plate can be ran down towards the bottom of the bumper, but in certain cases you just have nowhere else to go with it, so this is why we have this part. Pretty simple, it's a plate that holds your licence plate. It has all the hardware needed to attach your licence plate to it. This just basically goes into your front mount hitch when you don't have any other accessories in it.

We'll into some of the features. First off it has stainless steel bolts, then plated nuts and washers. These are nylon lock nuts. Licence plate holder its self is powder coated and if you flip it over and take a look at the part that goes inside the front mount hitch, we have 2 holes for adjustment, which uses a 5/8 inch hitch pin or a locking pin. Let's go ahead and put a licence plate on there and try it out. We actually have a loop of tape on here to help hold it in place for us while we put on our hardware.

Bolt, flat washer, and then a lock nut. Now its a good idea to actually have a flat washer on an oval here too, but we're not working with something that's really structural, so I think we'll be okay. The tools we need to tighten down the hardware will be a 1/2 inch socket and a wrench. Go ahead and put in our front mount hitch, and let's go ahead and line it up with our holes. We'll go ahead and try to run it all the way in if we can, if not we have an extra set of holes. Put your favorite locking pin in place, we're good to go. That'll finish it for part number 5443.

Front Mount Trailer Hitch License Plate Relocation Bracket - 5443

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (37 Customer Reviews)

Use this hitch mounted license plate bracket with your front mounted receiver.

by:

Very sturdy and easy to install. The initial shipment took longer than was expected and was missing some parts and damaged license plate relocator. the company quickly sent me replacements. Overall satisfied and would recommend this product just need to do a little better job with the shipping part of the order.



by:

I have been doing business with ETrailer for years and have to say their customer service is second to none.
I needed a way to mount a slow moving vehicle sign on my golf cart and this product was as describe and worked perfect for my application.
Product is a combination of not being over or under built.



by:

Car Wash kept tearing the front license plate from my 2022 Ram. This holder fits into my snow plow mount, and tucks just under the bumper enough to prevent the rotating brushes of the car wash from gripping the license plate.



by:

Much heavier construction than I was expecting -- that's good. Hole slots aren't far enough apart (vertically) for my Calif license plate. That's not good. (C'mon guys, how hard would it be to research every state's plates and make the hole patterns match, based on the purchaser's address?)



by:

Made of heavy steel plate so it should hold up to use well. The problem I had with it is the slots for bolting the license plate on don't line up. I don't know if it's an issue with Oregon plates only or if others are affected as well. I used the top two slots to attach the plate and could have drilled the other two holes out to make them work. I decided not to do that as it is heavy plate and would have taken awhile with a hand drill. A drill press would work better for drilling out the holes. The license plate is fairly well secured with only two bolts holding it.

Here are the measurements for this bracket. Measures four and a half inches from the center of the furthest hitch pin hole to the back of the license plate bracket Measures two and three fourths inches from the center of the closest hitch pin hole to the back of the license plate bracket



by:

Very sturdy bracket, easy to install. Nice touch of nylon insert locknuts (plus nuts and fender washers) for attaching the license plate to the bracket.



by:

I bought this to use with my hitch and swing out spare tire holder for my 4Runner. This ended up working out very well for me when I added a light to display my license plate. I used it the entire time I had my spare tire holder. I ended up selling the swing out spare tire holder and also gave this item to the person who bought it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for put their license plate. I would buy this item again if I decided to buy another spare tire holder.



by:

Not overbuilt, not flimsy, but just right! Been missing my front license plate for awhile. Before "the Man" takes notice, I figured I'd better do something about it. Other companies had 30 lbs behemoths, others had ones made of plastic. This one is perfect. It should be able to handle a few oopsies without the vehicle being eligible for reclassment of being up-armored. If you're already looking for a receiver hitch license plate holder, you know what to look for and this is it. Go for it!



by:

Great product. I removed my license plate holder on my wrangler and my spare tire. Where the spare tire was I have a delete plate with design so I put my license plate on the etrailer hitch with a lock on it which works out great.



by:

Great license plate bracket. The included hardware is sturdy. The four plate-mount holes didn’t really line up perfect, but they were close enough. I do wish the hitch portion was justified to the top/bottom of the plate, so that it didn’t hang so low.

As always, etrailer had what I needed, in stock, at competitive prices, with fast shipping and great communication. Really couldn’t ask for any more from them.



by:

Great way to cover your hitch. Looks good. My plate was welded a little crooked to inserts but was able to put in a vice and straighten it.



by:

The items I purchased seem top quality and arrived at my home within days of my order. Shipping was a little expansive, but my item did have a little weight to it.



by:

Nice look, fit, and finish. Heavy duty, thick gauge and NOT Cheap. Recommend a low cost hitch pin accompany this product; otherwise, there is nothing that will hold this bracket in place.



by:

The provided bolts are too large to fit through the mounting plate.



by:

Built like a battering ram! Required some minor adjustment for my states license plate but works perfectly and is rock solid!



by:

Great option



by:

This is my second purchase for this license plate receiver. It is exceptionally well built and will last a very long time.



by:

Solid construction. Holes didn't line up with my Nevada license plate.



by:

well built , easy to use , really fast shipping Thanks Etrailer



by:

Product Is Too Short To Work Properly In receiver



by:

Works and looks great

6/6/2018

Product has met all expectations and it has traveled to Nebraska as well as Key West, FL.



by:

Did exactly what I wanted. Since a front plate is required for this truck. My only wish was it didn’t stick out quite as far as it does, but it’s not to bad.



by:

Works well, sturdy construction



by:

It was exactly what I wanted. I was able to install it the same day it arrived.



by:

It does what it is supposed to do

  • Recommended Front Trailer Hitch Receiver For a 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali
    For your 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31071. This unit will sit just below the front fascia on your bumper giving you a much easier installation with no need to relocate your front license plate. I have linked an installation video below for a similar Sierra 3500 that you can see the installation process. The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65078 will require extensive fascia trimming as well as steel trimming behind...

  • Installation And Operation Of Front Mounted Winch On 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    It does not matter which battery the Superwinch Tiger Shark series winch you mentioned is connected to in your 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Diesel. The batteries are run in series so you have better cracking amps, but which battery you connect to won't affect any accessories. I suggest runing the engine while using the winch because the alternator will help give you more power and it will keep your batteries from draining and preventing start-up. For the front receiver, I recommend...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver For a 1990 Ford Ranger XLT 2WD
    Yes, the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65017 will fit on your 1990 Ford Ranger XLT 2wd truck. This receiver will fit all trims and drivetrains for the 1990 Ford Ranger. Since this mounts in the same area as the license plate you can use the Front Mount Trailer Hitch License Plate Relocation Bracket # 5443 if you are required to have a front license plate. I like using the WeatherTech BumpStepXL Hitch-Mounted Bumper Protector and Step # WT81BS1XL. This helps to prevent...

  • What is Width of Hitch Receiver Bracket on Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch License Plate Bracket
    I went out to the warehouse to take a look at the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch License Plate Relocation Bracket # 5443 referenced in your question. I measured a distance of 1-1/2 inches from the inside of one fork to the inside of the other. From outside to outside it is just under 2 inches.

  • Recommended Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2021 Ford F-250
    For your 2021 Ford F-250 I recommend the EcoHitch Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7904 as it installs in the front bumper opening even with the tow hooks as you can see in the included picture, where the other hitches available install underneath the front air dam. This means the EcoHitch will not take away any ground clearance where the other options will. The EcoHitch has a 10000lb line pull rating and 1000lb vertical load limit making it a perfect choice for adding a winch...

  • Is There a License Plate Bracket for the Thule T2 Pro XT Bike Rack
    To add a license plate bracket to any bike rack will require you to modify the bike rack. If you are willing to do that with the Thule T2 Pro XTR, # TH83JV, then your best bet would be a bracket with a light in the event that you are carrying your bikes at night. I recommend the Optronics License Plate Light w/ Mounting Bracket # LP55CB. To provide power to the light the easiest thing to do would be to install the T-One # 118467 which is a plug-in wiring harness (see attached installation...

  • Recommended Front Mount Trailer Hitch For A 2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    When installing a front mount trailer hitch onto your 2022 Ford F-350, I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 306-X7904. The EcoHitch is a great choice for your Ford F-350 because it provides additional ground clearance than the other front mount hitches that we offer and also has a significantly higher vertical load rating of 1,000 pounds compared to the other front mount hitches that we have, that are rated at 500 pounds. The EcoHitch has an easy, bolt-on installation...

  • Recommended Front Mount Trailer Hitch For A 2023 Jeep Gladiator
    Though both front mount hitches are very similar, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65079. The Draw-Tite hitch has a higher vertical load capacity at 500 pounds when the Curt hitch has a vertical load capacity of 350 pounds, so you will get more bang for your buck with the Draw-Tite hitch. The Draw-Tite hitch has an easy, bolt-on installation with no welding required. If you're needing to relocate the license plate, I recommend the Front Mount Trailer Hitch...

    I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH57FR for your 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. I like this front mount hitch over the others that we offer because once installed the only visible part of the front mount hitch will be the 2 inch receiver head, the cross tube will be completely hidden. The hitch has an easy, bolt-on installation with no drilling or welding required. If you're needing to move your license plate after installation you can use the Front Mount...

  • Front Hitch Fit for 1989 Chevrolet K2500 4WD
    Curt front-mount trailer hitch # 31042 will not fit your 4WD 1989 Chevrolet K2500's 34-inch frame width. The other option from Draw-Tite, front hitch # 65005, will fit your truck so long as it is not the Crew Cab. This hitch install will require drilling, some fascia trimming and relocation of your license plate using a bracket like # 5443. The linked customer photo shows this item installed on a compatible truck.

    You can definitely carry the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 with a front mount hitch on your GMC Sierra 2500 Denali! It looks like you input a 2019 GMC Sierra 2500 in as your vehicle. If this is the year that you have then we have 2 different front mount hitch options for you, the Draw-Tite # 65078 which sticks through your front fascia (cleaner look but cutting of fascia where the license plate sits) and the Curt # C31071 which hangs below your fascia (no fascia cutting but might reduce...

The EcoHitch is also one of my favorites because it has a hidden cross tube so when installed it will provide a clean, from the factory look, leaving only the 2 inch receiver visible.

    The Front Mount Trailer Hitch License Plate Relocation Bracket part # 5443 is designed for a standard 6" tall 12" wide license plate which is the standard in the United States and Canada.

    The front fascia trimming that is required to install the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch on your 2011 Chevrolet 3500 is detailed in the installation instructions that I have linked for you. Basically, you will need to drill a square hole that is 3-1/4 inches by 3-1/4 inches. To begin measuring for the cutout, you will want to measure from the tow hook bolt center to the ground. Next, subtract 4-1/8 inches from that measurement, this will be the distance from the ground to the bottom of the...

  • 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty Front Hitch Receiver Recommendation
    Aside from brand name the Curt Front Hitch # 31114 and Draw-Tite Front Hitch # 65022 are virtually the same for your 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty - usually in this case it boils down to brand-loyalty for the end-user. If you don't have a preference then I recommend going with the Curt. The powder coat on Curt hitches tends to be a little thicker which gives it a slight edge in protection against the elements.

It has a very precise robotic welding which maximizes it's strength and durability. Trimming of front air dam or fascia may be required for hitch installation.
