Our take on the Clarion CAU001

Mount it

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.

The Clarion CAU001 is the perfect match for the Clarion CC520 backup camera. It makes the installation easy and it looks great. I would recommend this to anyone looking at purchasing an after market backup camera.
