Surely I'm not the only one who doesn't want holes drilled through the beautiful painted bumper on my new SRX. Has anyone come up with a mounting bracket that does not require these holes to be drilled?

Thanks.

This is what I did. Used 4 toggle bolts through the grill. Very secure, I have had mine on since 2010.

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking about something similiar. Did you do anything to protect the painted area behind the license plate mounting assembly?

I did not use anything however you could easily place something at the peak of the bumper right behind the plate. Because of the curvature, the plate only touches that area. I never intended to remove the plate so I overlooked it.
