Our take on the Clarion CAU001 by Crutchfield's Alexander Hrabe
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.

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 ]
