Tuffy flip-up license plate mount on Superwinch Tiger Shark

Just wondering if anyone knows if the Tuffy flip-up license plate holder would fit on the fairlead of a Superwinch Tiger Shark 9500?

It says it fits all standard fairleads, but I really have no idea if the Superwinch fairlead will conform to the "standard" size.

There is no adjustment available on this license plate mount so if it doesn't fit it is basically junk to me.

I was wondering something similar to this as I am considering an "in the stock bumper" winch setup. However, I may now do a hitch receiver setup. I like the clean look of the license plate covering the lead.

I think im just going to use the maglite mount trick to attach the license plate to the roller fairleads. A lot cheaper and at least I know it will work.

Probably the safest way to go. I just sort of ran into something similar the other day with these Roller Fairleads being different specs. I had purchased a Daystar Isolator for the winch hook and when I went to put it on a Engo winch it came up about 1/4 - 1/2 inch or so short of fitting in there. I don't really know if there really IS a standard here. Good thing was I could use it on my Warn so no big loss but I got to find some other Winch saver to use on this Engo now.

I recently bought one of these for my plate and it fits and works perfect. I have a Quadratec winch and it mounted right on the top of the roller fairleads. I just had to remove the clips.

That's the same winch I have and I bought the Tuffy based on your post. I love it.
