Tow Hook License Plate

Anyone have any suggestions/experiences with a particular brand?

Had the car a month and pulled over twice already. Not speeding or anything, just a State Troopers that were bored. No tickets, just warnings.

Thanks in advance.

Hello fellow New Yorker. I wouldn't even consider a tow hook mounting plate other than Rho-Plate. They pay me good money to say so. J/K

Seriously - all the other ones suck.

Usually these threads wind up with you learning that you can make your own for 37 cents or it looks ugly to off-set your plate.
