Product Description

STO N SHO License Plate Bracket for all 2013-2014 Focus STs.

The STO N SHO is an aftermarket detachable front license plate bracket mounting system that is designed for those cars whose appearance would be ruined by use of the factory mounting location. Quite a few states require a license plate on the rear and front of your vehicle. Front license plates tend to take away from the look of your car. The STO N SHO was designed with the car show enthusiast in mind. Stay in compliance with state law by simply STOing your front license plate when you want to SHO the beauty of your car. Then, reinstall once you are ready to hit the road.

The STO N SHO is a two-piece detachable mounting system consisting of a front license plate holder and a base mounting plate. Removal and installation of the license plate is extremely easy requiring only the pull of a pin. When the front license plate holder is removed, the base plate is virtually undetectable.

The STO N SHO is constructed from 5052 and 6061 aluminum. Both plates are precision laser cut and hand burnished. Each tube and rod is machine cut and hand cleaned. After being expertly hand welded and drilled, the parts are assembled and sent to the finishers where the welds are ground smooth. Once the high quality automotive trim black paint is applied, the product is tested to ensure proper operation. A lot of time and work goes into each STO N SHO to ensure you receive a quality part. Manufactured in the USA using quality materials and parts!

*Requires four holes to be drilled on the underside of the vehicle. These holse are not visible and do not detract from the look of the vehicle.

Mustang Applications

This product will fit the following Ford Mustang years:

Product Questions


Has this been fitted to a 2015 Focus ST? Looking to get something, however am a bit weary as I have not seen anything for the refreshed model yet.

Asked by: Bowers86
No, it hasn't. With the front end redesign, it's possible it won't work, but we still haven't had a chance to test fit one.

Does this fit the 2015 ST?

Asked by: CrazyFarmer
Officially, we haven't heard yet on whether this fits or not. My suspicion is that it won't, since the front end was restyled on the 2015s, but it's really hard to say until the manufacturer lets us know.

I heard that use of this bracket will block air flow to the intercooler.  Is that true?  I need a bracket soon; Ohio requires a front plate.  This car is an every day transport and won't be going to a track, and even then, this bracket could be removed.

Asked by: tclark49
No, it doesn't block the intercooler....since it isn't tight against the bumper, air can still move around the bracket, so it won't hurt performance any.

STO and SHO license plate bracket - can you tell me the relative performance impact on intercooler flow with the license plate in the center position on a 2014 Focus ST? Thanks.

Asked by: myork106
It does not adversely effect performance.

By Bill Tumas: We’re here with a STO N SHO removable license plate bracket fitting your 2013 through 2014 Focus ST.

If you live in a state where a front plate's required, STO N SHO's a great way to put one onto your Focus ST without putting it in the center of the grill. This is going to mount underneath your front bumper. This removal piece here is for when you go to a car show or a local cruise night and you can remove the plate itself. You will have to drill holes in the bottom of your bumper cover on the front of your splash shield to install the plate onto your Focus ST. Because there are no factory holes, it gives the opportunity to move it from side to side and you don't necessarily have to keep it centered.

The STO N SHO bracket is a nice clean way to install an easily removable license plate to the front of your Focus ST.
