Question License plate help!

I got a no plate ticket a couple months back and my court date is coming up. I don't want to screw into my bumper. Anyone know where I can get a tow winch plate holder from? I need one bad!

I know it's a different car, but had similar tickets in the past. Don't like the tow hook offset, so here is what I did. No holes in the bumper

They're both good ideas, I wanted to Velcro it first. I zip tied it to the lower grille and went to court. The sheriff came to check it and before I can say anything he goes "if you're here for your plates that's not gonna pass". He said it has to be bolted to your car, or tow hook, no tapes of any kind or zip ties.

I just ordered me one from here for $60 + tax.

Wondering if anyone has tried the Bell plate option on 2014 E350Sport
Can this be mounted in the lower grill ? or is the space not enough.

The funny thing is my cousins friend did that, glued bolt heads to the bumper to make it seem like it's bolted and passed lol. Now a days they're dicks, sheriff will probably come yank it to make sure if it's really bolted, would look stupid if he yanked it off the Velcro lol.
