This license plate frame is a perfect fit for Clarion's CC510 rear-view camera, ideal for those looking for a discreet mounting solution. Clarion made the frame from rugged die-cast aluminum, and it features angle adjustment and anti-theft hardware. Two built -in LED lamps illuminate your license plate. Warranty: 1 year.
Install instructions said to remove the screws on the back of the Clarion camera and to remove the back of the camera (in order to install the mounting hardware. The frame and the camera were supposed to be a matching combination of Clarion products. However, the camera back was sealed which I believe was a good thing because that makes it seem much more water resistant; so I am pretty sure the problem is with outdated instructions that accompanied the license plate frame... there were no screws to remove. I had to fabricate something in order to make it work... once I did; all was fine. What should have been a quick install, took about an hour. Otherwise, this is a very sturdy product which is why I felt generous in giving it at least 3 stars.
Pros: Sturdy frame.
Cons: The instructions that came with product. Not only were the instructions inaccurate, but they read as though they were written by someone who barely speaks English.
Works great. Easy to install. My truck pulls trailers most of the time. The camera makes hooking up easy, and the aluminum frame protects the camera if I miss, which I have been known to do, judging by the dents in the license plate.
I purchased this product so I wouldn't have to drill any holes in the car. Made the install much easier.
Pros: Looks great,love the bright led lights,nice clean look
excellent, just what the camera needed
Pros: looks great
Tech support was great as always on helping me find my truck's reverse sensor wire. Camera works great, very clear and allows me to hook up to the trailer with out getting out of my ride. Priceless!! Frame is large but makes the camera installation easy and professional. Highly recommend!
Pros: Ease of install
I purchased this product to give me a cleaner and better mounting point for the the Clarion backup camera. Love it.
Pros: Easy install, makes for a clean install for a backup camera, high quality, and comes with its own plate lights that are easily hooked up.
This is a good quality backup camera holder, pretty easy to hook up wires for the led light.
Pros: Quality construction, looks good.
The plate holder is a little pricy, but holds the back up camera well
Great frame for my clarion camera with extra lighting for my plate
Pros: easy to install, extra plate led lights that double as lighting at night for backup camera
Good looking frame to hold my back-up camera and frames out the license plate nicely, although it does cover up the area of my plate that says Florida on it.
Pros: great looking and durable aluminum.
Cons: May cover some of your license plate on the top side. Covered up mine so you cannot see the top.
This is a nice, well made, heavy duty license plate frame. It is bulky though. Sticks out about 1.25'' and the camera comes out another 1/2 inch. It does cover the state name on the license plate.
Pros: Nice black satin finish heavy (sturdy)
Cons: Bulky - sticks out 1.75'' with camera mounted covers license plate
Large cumbersome and useless for my application. Should have never been sold this item for my Tundra. In Texas this unit is illegal as it covers the state name on the plate.
Cons: Illegal in Texas.
This is really well made from sturdy aluminum. It fit the Clarion universal camera perfectly. Easy to install and included several different brackets for different cameras and configurations.
Pros: Well built, solid, easy to install.
Cons: Covers the state name on my license plate.
This holder for the camera is a must. Great looking plate frame!
Pros: It's protected and the led lights look cool!
Cons: Had to re-drill the standard wholes for the frame to make it fit during installation.
Originally, I had a few initial concerns that this bracket would be too bulky or not provide the best angle for mounting my camera on my Tacoma, but I was blown away once installed. The quality of the bracket and overall aesthetics are amazing. It actually looks great and not just a bolt-on after-thought. The led lights are functional and look great! If you buy the clarion backup camera this bracket is a must have! A little pricey but its well worth the extra $$.
Pros: Quality, sturdy, great option for a Tacoma
Cons: A little pricey, led wiring could be a tad longer.
Frame held camera well in place providing extra support.
Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: Covers the tags state name. May be a reason for law enforcement to stop you.
This is a must get. The clarion camera fits perfect and looks great. The led lights are pretty bright giving you better vision at night. Great buy.
Frame is great, holds camera well and the lights from the frame look really cool.
Not impressed, over priced for the quality
Cons: Over priced!
Extremely strong solid aluminum build with theft proof fasteners makes it so you will not have to modify your vehicle in anyway to add the clarion backup camera
Pros: Easy to install Very solid Low profile Right price
Great mount. Bright LEDs
Pros: Holds camera perfectly
I thought it a little much $ for a license plate frame. I was wrong. The frame was well made aluminum. Came with many bracket to incorporate with the camera (501). Theft proof screws and allen driver. Very well made and puts the camera right where I need it . I can see trailer ball as I back up to it and traffic when in navigation mode. This is on a ford F250 King Ranch. Worth 2x as much as they charge. Buy it!
Pros: Instructions, Hardware included, Quality
Cons: Absolutely none
Sturdy & secure mount for Backup camera. This liscence plate frame looks good and provides security for your camera. I purchased this with the Clarion CC510 camera, & they work perfectly together. The frame includes "theft deterrent" screws & LED lamps to illuminate your liscence plate.
Pros: Solid build quality, & appearance.
Does a great job
Pros: Size, and cost.
I needed something and this did the job. Would be nice if offered with out the light. Price could be half of what it is.
Pros: Did the job
Cons: light was not needed
Solidly built frame, easy to assemble and install
Pros: Puts the camera in a good viewing position.
Cons: Camera sticks out a little too far from the frame and might be banged into while loading or unloading cargo
Before you buy this unit make sure you have a gap between the top of your plate and your door handle. The top is fairly large and tends to get in the way if you have above license plate handle.
Pros: Finish is a nice mat black. The extra build in LED's are a nice touch if you need them. The unit has a clean look and works very nicely.
Cons: Again check the space between the license plate and rear door handle it can cause a problem.
Nice aluminum frame works great with Clarion camera
Pros: Easy to install. LED lights
Had to order another
Pros: Well made
Cons: other than not having the bracket to mount the camera none
I purchased this alongside the Clarion CC510. The frame itself is well built and the LED's are nice and bright. It makes backing up at night super easy. My only complaint is the wiring for the led's. The wires themselves are super thing, I couldn't use a my wire strippers on 'positive' wire. I had to end up ripping it with my teeth (not good I know) and the ground wire is bare.
It would have been nice with a thicker gauge wire and having two separate insulated wires.
Alas, for the money and the feature I'd recommend this.
Only giving 3 stars for the wiring issues.
Pros: Brightness Aesthetics
Cons: Wiring is too thin.
Scratch & Dent items may be missing non-essential accessories. In some cases the manufacturer's accessories have been replaced with generic equivalents.

SPLURGED SINCE IT WAS METAL AND WOULD MAKE BACKUP CAMERA EASIER [ Peter Jan 26, 2016 ]
Easy of installation of compatible backup camera. [ Paul Jan 02, 2016 ]
to make installation easier, positive reviews, additional light for the camera. [ Daniel Dec 29, 2015 ]
Recommended by Crutchfield Advisor. Works great. The only thing is the mounting part for the camera sticks out over an inch. I have a truck so it sits in the bumper fine. [ DAVID Dec 23, 2015 ]
