front license plate

Looking for some ideas to mount a license plate to a 2 inch bumper. Everything I find is for a 3 inch. Anyone else do this without drilling into the bumper?

I've seen a lot of folks use zipties.

2"? That's pretty narrow isn't it?

Put 4 strong magnets between the bumper and the plate. I haven't tried it but might work.

X2. Just bolt the clips to the licence plate. Yank the plate off when you are out playing.

Zip ties. Get them from the never ending supply in my glove box.

It's a license plate holder from the parts store.
