Overview

Our take on the Alpine KTX-C10LP

Alpine Authorized Online Dealer

Mount an Alpine HCE-C115 or HCE-C117D rear-view camera on this handy license plate frame and you won't even know it's there. The plate will also work with the Alpine HCE-C105, HCE-C107D, HCE-C155, HCE-157D, HCE-C200F, HCE-C200R, HCE-C210RD, HCE-C300R, HCE-305R, HCE-C210RD, HCE-C212F, and HCE-C305R cameras. The durable kit is made from cast metal, and includes LEDs for license plate illumination at night. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Sorry, Crutchfield cannot ship Alpine products to Guam or Puerto Rico.

Good fit. Looks nice. Good construction.

Decent but overpriced

Written by: john from englewood, CO on March 23, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

OK, so it holds a brand specific camera. It's still a license plate frame. Decent construction but it should include some theft resistant screws.

Pros: Fairly solid, hold an alpine back up camera

Cons: Wires are a tight almost pinchy fit in the back, price.

A Good Mount for Hooking Up Trailers

Written by: Steven M from Big Lake,, AK on March 9, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted a camera mount like this for use with hooking up trailers, and it works well for that. You have to provide an exit for the camera cable through the channel of the frame, depending upon where you want it to exit, so be aware that you'll need tools for that if you're planning to install it yourself.

Pros:

Cons:

Good fit/looks nice

Written by: Kevin S from Louisiana on December 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good fit. Looks nice. Good construction.

Pros: Camera fits securely.

Cons: You'll need a jeweler's screwdriver to mount your camera with the tiny screws. Fortunately, I had some.

Solid

Written by: 69vetteguy from South Carolina on November 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice solid construction. Paired with the Alpine HCE-C157D camera; perfect match. Love the built in LED lighting.

Pros: Metal construction, secure camera mounting.

Cons: Wire for the LED light was odd; single conductor shielded cable? Not such a god idea to use the shield as a conductor.

Great spot for camera on truck

Written by: Ed from New Jersey on December 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This puts the camera in a perfect spot to see my trailer hitch when hooking up the boat or jetski. Was always a pain to get in and out of truck to see where I was doing it by myself

What a view!

Written by: Rich from Floresville, Tx on July 24, 2014

The view is awesome. My Mustang is lowered and from this view your just few inches from the ground, but you get a wide view.

Pros: Great product mounts easily and great view.

Cons: Can be stolen if they know what they are looking for.

Perfect fit

Written by: Todd from TX on June 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love the way to attach this and great viewing angle from above the license

Pros: Easy to mount

Cons: Had to mangle my license plate to get the wire to route correctly from the camera.

Solid frame, tricky to install

Written by: Sam from Decatur, IL on March 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Solid metal frame, bright LED lights and several mounting options for cameras. Installation was tricky. Screws are very tiny, and I could not get any of the mounting holes to align with the supplied mounting brackets that attach the camera to the frame. Luckily I was able to modify the mounting brackets to complete installation of an Alpine HCE-C155 camera. Tip- Rather than drill new holes, I modified 2 out of the 4 holes to make them 'C' shaped. This allowed enough room to align all 4 screws and mount the camera.

Pros: LED lights, solid metal frame

Cons: Tricky to install

Excellent mount

Written by: Douglas from Murray, UT on July 27, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very high quality mounting frame. I loved the fact that I did not need to modify my truck in any way to mount the camera.

Pros: Very high quality mounting frame.

Cons: I needed to trim my license plate to get it to fit behind the frame and allow the cable to go through without subject to damage. It's a cheap, government issues piece of junk (the license plate), so I was happy to cut it up.

Great Product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Alpine License Plate Holder and Camera mount are a nice fit and easy to install. Just be careful not to lose the screws they are tiny. I saw the other reviews before purchasing so I opened the packaging up carefully and was mindful while installing the camera about these tiny screws and it was good advice to follow. The plate holder is high quality and looks nice. The camera sits in there perfectly, the only thing was I did need to make a V notch in my license plate to allow the wire coming off the back of the camera to not get pinched. The notch is hidden by the plate holder so its no big deal. The result is a professional look and a sturdy mount for my Alpine 117 camera.

Cons:

Excellent Quality

Written by: Mike from Maine on May 6, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The quality of this item exceeded expectations. Yes, it is a little pricey, but very worth it. This isn't a cheap plastic piece, it's a nicely finished metal piece with high quality fasteners.

Pros:

Cons:

Great buy

Written by: R.L. from Webster MA on March 20, 2013

This item is great, I actually have it installed on all 3 of my cars. I see people complain about the price but you need to realize this isn't some plastic piece of crap. It's all metal and has lights for the plate, which look real cool at night.

Pros: Metal, LED plate light

Cons: needs to come in more than just black

diy

Written by: jamie from calhoun ga on December 10, 2012

tools needed: tiny 4 way, itty bitty flat head, file, drill, and courage to hack up fifty dollar part for no good reason. maybe HCE-C104 camera wasn't supposed to fit this tag, if so, why didn't someone tell me? The only way to get camera clocked correctly was to disassemble brackets and rotate inside bezel. More trouble than you'd think.

Pros: LED tag lights

Cons: camera bracket and tag had to be finessed together with a small hammer

Works great

Written by: smokytrail from Poquoson, VA on November 23, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great with the camera.

Pros: LED lights are a nice touch

Cons: Make sure you have the proper tools (Dremmel, Drill, etc.) to modify the frame to run the wires. Also, the mounting screws are about the same size as sunglass hardware--you'll need a TINY phillips head screw driver for the included hardware. Finally, don't drop the screws--you'll never find them! Now my camera is attached with 3 screws instead of 4.

Good accessory with 2 areas for improvement

Written by: JC from Pennsylvania on August 2, 2010

This product is metal and it is sturdy. It holds the camera quite well and the fit and finish is nothing short of excellent. 2 small gripes are that Alpine could have pre-cut a channel in the top rear for wire routing. IMHO, this would not have detracted from the visual quality even if the wires are routed another way. I had to use a dremel and paint the bare metal. I was able to get a decent match, and you really can't tell, but this could have been done for all that have to run wires behind and out the top. Secondly, the included screws will rust - mine are all ready rusting less than a month after install. I was very careful when screwing in, but these will just rust. For this price, We could have had better screws included ie. power coated stainless... Those are small gripes - this is an excellent product.

Cons:

Unless the stickers are put on after the frame is installed, there's a good chance that at least the edges of the registration stickers can be blocked. This is no different than the license plate frames from dealerships. [ Aaron  May 03, 2015 ]
