A flip-up numberplate? If only it was legal

007 would love it. Press a button and this numberplate folds in half to cover up your number. Sadly this is strictly illegal for use on the road. But, you’d only want one as a show plate or on a track day, wouldn’t you?

And that is how this piece of ingenuity is sold. This latest version has been uprated to improve the wiring and waterproofing (making it better able to deal with the rigours of a wet track day).

The kit includes reflective backing and your numbers and letters, which you have to fit yourself. The operating button has an LED to show when it’s down. The dimensions are slightly smaller than the legal minimum (so the police definitely won’t take kindly to seeing one on the road) and it takes about an hour to fit. It costs £69.95. and you can find out more by calling 0870-904-6644.
