The Cops Are Gonna Love That: License Plate Flipper

January 24, 2013


This is the $455 License Plate Flipper, a device that, with the push of a button, flips your license plate to reveal a different one in 1.2-seconds. The company says the thing was designed for not getting your plate dirty when offroading or concealing your plate at a car show, despite the fact the Lexus in the video would never go offroading or be in a car show and is sporting two different plates from two different states. I guess the company just has to say that so the police don't come knocking after somebody gets busting doing something illegal with one. Which I plan on!

*flashing police lights*
Officer: Sir, do you know why I pulled you over?
Me: Maybe.
Officer: You kept flipping your license plate between the actual plate and a cartoon penis.
Me: Hehe, guilty as charged!
Officer: License and registration, please.
Me: What if I told you I'm a Transformer?
Officer: I'm going to have to ask you to step out of the car, sir.
Me: Okay.
Me: But you said you were gonna ask!

Hit the jump for a short video of the plate flipping in action.

Thanks to Mnemosyne, who has a license plate flipper that can rotate through not one, not two, not three, but 700 plates. Wow!

    How can I buy one?

  • I have a license plate flipper, but not the kind shown in this video...mine just flips my plate down 90 degrees so you could only read it if you were under my car. Didn't help me though when I forgot about a camera being there and blew past it at 15 over.

  • I know the real idea behind it - for speeding constantly, and just when u come across the "speed trap" - time to change to "f*** cops" or something like that, then after a photo is done, flip to actual one >;D

    Idiot who wrote article doesn't know what show car plates are, otherwise he'd have noticed there were no tabs, and the license plate says 150 years on it. Derp.

    Based off your username, I'm just going to assume that you're a dip shit and ignore anything you have to say.

  • Bengy Bones

  • James Bond got there first.

  • luxlucetintenebris

    The original Knight Rider probably had it before anyone.
