So, I guess it wobbles slightly but I wouldn’t say it’s a lot and I have no idea what it looks like when driving because well I can’t see it but I doubt it is flopping all around or anything. The one concern I have would be street parking. The plate bolts to the frame and the bolts stick out behind it. If you were to have someone back into it there’s probably a chance the bolts could get pushed back and into the bumper and could do some small damage if it happens. The good news is if it’s a concern you can just take the plate off when you park but obviously if someone backs into you you’re still gonna have a scratch most likely. Other than that it’s been great and when it comes time to wash the car it makes it easy to clean the front by just removing it. Do look into the backing for the plate though. I used something like this:

Cruiser Accessories 79150 Mounting Plate, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00032K4VA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_YZFhAbF00ZPR6

Maybe even the exact same one and then I put a black frame in front as well. Made the whole thing nice and solid. When I tried it with just the plate it was flimsy and the plate wasn’t totally straight.

u/autumnfalln · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I reallllly need a license plate frame, and this one is really awesome and has Prime! I could also really use this trunk organizer thing.

And this tablet car mount looks very nice and has amazing reviews!

Hope I was able to help you in your search a bit =) Thanks so much for the contest!!

u/notbob1959 · 4 pointsr/Dallas

Maybe the owner is a proctologist! Not sure how he is getting away with it but I am pretty sure that is not a real license plate. Whatever the case, the sign on the back says it is for sale:
For Sale
1974 Cadillac
El Dorado
12K - or Best Offer
Call David

$12,000 seemed like a good price but it looks like it has 165,000 miles on it.

u/macropolophoto · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I actually was looking for the same thing a week ago and couldn’t find anything I liked in red, BUT I did find a unique frame on Amazon that I really like because the plate “slides” into the frame from the back, so it only goes around the edges of the plate (doesn’t cover any part of the front of the plate.) They only come in black, but some red glossy enamel satisfied my GTI-red desires lol. Picture from the side really doesn’t do it justice; the red is much brighter in person. https://i.imgur.com/CvFBqPw.jpg

Here is the frame I got: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B011CQTR8G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_u2fTAbDEF797J

u/AlphaThree · 1 pointr/LoveLive

Yeah for my plate before this one I spent like 3 hours trying to figure out one I was happy with. OTAKU, 0TAKU, and OT4KU, were all taken lol. K-ON HTT is a good one I've seen but Arizona doesn't allow special characters. I think Hanayo would be a good one with a custom green LoveLive frame. I just ordered a custom frame on Amazon that says "LoveLive! School Idol Project" on top and 'Aqours Heroes! Zero to One!" on bottom. It was $25.

u/gbeezy007 · 1 pointr/WRX

I got a 2018 relocation non brand name it was labeled for wrx and be but some wrx complained about it sticking out too much which is why it probably fit my 18 okay. Haha.

I too would be interested in a pic or two of how it's installed light bar used and cost. Nothing crazy detailed just curious

Edit. Looked at my Amazon account this is the one it says I ordered
If you get this make sure to reference the diagram on the product page

u/V1scera · 2 pointsr/subaru

Haha that feeling doesn't go away.


And here is the relocation plate kit i used. It's a tight fit on a 2018, but doesn't actually rub or touch the car, and has held strong through multiple trips and machine car washes (i know, i know, supposed to hand wash only Haha)

u/JudaiMustang · 3 pointsr/GolfGTI

I have this one coming in today. Heard good things about it. Will let you know how it turns out, but it's the only one I saw on amazon that got good reviews, and I had Amazon credit to burn.

u/wcalvert · 2 pointsr/legaladvice

> as long as I keep the front plate in the glove box and present it if I am asked than I will be okay.

Almost certainly is not following the law and preferential treatment is given due to owning a high-end car.

First, I'm kind of intrigued as to what kind of car it is. You don't here about too many numbered cars anymore.

Second, you do have a few options. I also wanted to protect my bumper from drilling holes and I got a piece of foam and zip tied the plate to the grill. Can definitely be done in a way that doesn't look bad.

Your other option is to get something like this I've seen all sorts of these, and you can even get ones that will retract or extend from inside the car.

Companies also make front plate mounts that utilize existing holes in the bumper.

u/missxjulia · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/murdochh · 1 pointr/BMW

MD requires a front plate n i don't want to drill any holes in the bumper so i got this. sure there are other ones that don't require holes but are all $55+.

thanks, recently put the lip on n i love it. do not love the scrapping though.

u/moordzieK · 2 pointsr/WRX

There is an adapter kit that will fit a US plate with the JDM holes. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EKVUJC8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Just got this for my wife's Forester, works great and looks good.

The amount that my life has grown towards the positive because of that simple decision has left me flabbergasted. :)

u/pumah · 2 pointsr/camaro

I went from Gen 5 to 6, get these with some velcro. Stick next to your right knee on the transmission tunnel for a good cell phone holder.

If you need a front plate, ZL1 Addons makes a great one I can vouch for.

u/pluresutilitates · 5 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

For the rear I got the Carshow Automotive Products Plateguard, Tabless License Plate Frame and Holder/Bracket. There is also a chrome version. I like this because it looks clean with no tab holes also it keeps the metal license plate from touching the car.

My state does not require a front license plate so I got the Subaru Black Front License Plate Delete 12" with Laser Engraved Boxer Pistons There are different designs if you look on eBay. This one is my new favorite.

You can also buy a bracket that will mount a US spec plate to the JDM spaced holes. Without having to drill any new holes into your front bumper like a lot of dealers do.

u/stewrophlin · 2 pointsr/Spaceballs

I ordered it [here] (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01CLXEQ1M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_7nMBzbZZFAZ7Q) and chose MAGNUM_2 for the font. Turned out better than I thought!

If anyone knows where I can get a "SPACEBALLS the phone cover" that would be great.

u/tofuflower · 1 pointr/sanfrancisco

When this happened to my friend, he put on a no-drill detachable front license plate holder for inspection at the DMV, then took it off. Check out audi car forums for your model - other owners who had this issue probably came up with temporary fixes for the correction.

You could also install something like this for a more permanent fix to flip up every time you park.

I have a theory that LA is more lenient / cheaper ticket because there are more people that care about front aesthetics of the car. My brother doesn't have a front plate either and got stopped at LAX while circling with just a warning.

u/ashtong · 2 pointsr/mazda

They're usually called no show plates where you can have it up and showing and then when you want it flips down and hides under the bumper. First thing I bought for my car and bought it from Florida so it didn't have the holes drilled already. This is basically the same one I got


They also make a electronic one but it's not worth it. I had them install it for free when I was getting headlight work done the day I bought the car

Also here are some other photos I took earlier today that show the frame location and such better. http://m.imgur.com/a/dCkgj

u/Kratomho · 1 pointr/Audi

Hey guys, I finally got a RS grill. I think it turned out awesome. I also painted my brake calipers and installed a headlight reflector overlay too. http://tjl2503.imgur.com/all/

In case you're interested I got my grill from this guy. I did some research and couldn't find it anywhere else at this price. A friend of mine got his at ECS tuning and it feels like the same material. http://www.ebay.com/itm/190900974331?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

It took me about 2 hours to install. I painted the crash bar with plastidip and I bought this to install my front plate. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00032K4VA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. New wheels next.

u/juliet1484 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm dying for this. All the cool kids like Doctor Who :)

u/REVIGOR · 2 pointsr/Lightbar

You could mount one on your bumper using a mount like this one. I use a similar mount and it has held up great.

u/B0Pstar · 2 pointsr/GolfGTI

Its great! It was cool because the dealer asked me if I wanted them to drill into the bumper or not. I said no thanks and picked up this

u/pheesh · 2 pointsr/subaru

Great looking Impreza.

Dumb question, what are the front license plate mounting holes like?

I have a 2016 Forester and had to get a special mounting bracket because the holes are Japanese style. I have an 2017 Impreza on order was wondering if I needed the same thing.

If I zoom in the front bumper, it looks like there are two little button-ish things?

u/Ftpini · 3 pointsr/GolfGTI

I bought this one and its perfect. I can't recommend it enough. It has the added benefit of being able to simple reinstall the tow hook cover should my state come to their senses and ditch the requirement.

u/WRX2017 · 2 pointsr/WRX

My dealer told me that I don't want them to drill into the bumper when I picked it up. Ended up picking up a JDM adapter plate on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EKVUJC8/

It's a simple plastic backing with expanding rubber fasteners. I stabilized it with some foam weatherstripping to ensure it doesn't wobble. I also got a recessed chrome frame from a local auto shop.

A center mounted plate looks better imho, asymmetry is not my thing.

u/DaBozz88 · 3 pointsr/camaro

well then there are other options that don't move that still mount under the bumper.

But overkill is what makes these cars fun man. Or at least that's just me.

This mounts into the tow hook hole, so it's a screw in bracket, and doesn't mess with anything.

Another option


u/BossMann123 · 1 pointr/mazda3

I got 35 in the front and 20% in the back. The plate relocator is this one It doesn't block the turn signal, it attaches into the toe hook that's on the right side. It's great!

u/Shoot2ill · 12 pointsr/GolfGTI

Hey guys! Long time lurker, first time poster here. Joined the club a few months back after purchasing my used (CPO) 2015 GTI Autobahn w/ Lighting Package. Like some other users on here, I was not a "car guy" prior to owning this little beast. I came from a 2001 Toyota Solara, so it's been quite the upgrade. All the modifications I found on here or from the various GTI forums out there, so I thought I would try and "give back" to this awesome community. Questions welcomed!

Current list of mods:


u/SomeBlokeFromAstora · 2 pointsr/mazda3

I've used the iJDMTOY one on my 2017 Mazda 3 Sport GT. Install was easy though I had to tighten the nut behind the plate after a few months. So I just put loctite on it.


u/WakiWikiWonk · 3 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

I am pretty happy with this combination:




It did require some minor mods. I drilled the cover so it takes 4 screws instead of 2, used a dremel to make it so that the screws didn't stick out too far in the rear, and applied some JB weld around the nuts so that they wouldn't spin. A bit of work, but well worth it IMO.

u/Silenthunter87 · 2 pointsr/FocusST

Sto-n-sho bracket mounts to the underside of the bumper and is removable, but stupid expensive.

Ive seen some guys zip-tie the plate to the grill mesh.

Amazon has a few cheaper hide away front mounts like this

You can also add a tow hook mount to the crash bar and use it to mount the plate through the grill as well, but those tend to be more pricey than the sto-n-sho, but look great.

u/WorkPlayDrive · 6 pointsr/Challenger

The Sto N Sho was my end all solution http://imgur.com/a/qeePZ

It allowed me to have a stable solid legal front plate that can be removed at will. I installed it in May / June of last year and scrape it every day in and out of my drive way due to the height of my car. I recommend a thick metal plate frame that stands up to all the abuse Link: https://amzn.com/B00E1ETJNU . Even a year later I easily popped the plate off this weekend at the track. It installs easily using one of the factory bolts and 2 large screws you drill on your own for centering. I chose right placement because it allowed the plate to sit closer to the spoiler.


I did the toggle bolt mount temporarily, but I was looking for a better solution when showing the car. Toggle Bolt > http://imgur.com/a/8q8Ua. It worked and was very solid, but annoyed me. not to visible in the photos but I added little sticky pads to all the corners that came in contact with the bumper and my chin spoiler to avoid rub marks.

u/MGY · 3 pointsr/mazda3

If you're forced to have a front plate, at least get one of these.

The metal is strong and it will keep it from bending. I use it on my 2016 3 and it looks surprisingly nice.

u/SubtleSalmon · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

My dealer also drilled the holes. This is the bracket you need to put a US plate on the Japanese holes, fits perfectly, and covers up the dealer holes.


u/Blubaru23 · 4 pointsr/WRX

Regarding the relocates the Grimmspeed one is the best.

It blows the Perrin one out of the water in regards to adjustability. Perrin can only slightly adjust vertically where as the GS has a ton of vertical+horizontal.

I know because I own both.

u/jaaypeee · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

I used a bracket off of Amazon and it has worked great.

u/nhct · 1 pointr/mazda3

Where are you seeing $100?

The exact model you linked is at Amazon for $21.11, with free shipping and 30-day free returns.

There are lots of very similar models on eBay from as low as $11 (search for 'Mazda 3 tow hook license plate'), also with free shipping, with some sellers having sold scores and even hundreds of them, between $11 — $20.

It's not exactly a hard-to-find or high-tech accessory.

Any of them would get the job done, if that clean-grille but off-center look appeals to you.

At $24, one could say it's priced slightly above the going rate, due to the brand name.

u/just-another-post · 4 pointsr/Mustang

Hey OP, if you do end up installing a license plate, get an undermount license plate holder. This what I bought for mine. It's basically a giant L-bracket which I attached to the underside of the bumper, where the drill holes are hidden (I drilled just above where your rally lights are).

If you want to shell out the extra $, you can also go for a truly drill-less option.

Then, one day, when the laws are repealed (wishful thinking), you can laugh all the way to the bank...the bank of undrilled bumpers.

u/Rmj512 · 2 pointsr/Volkswagen

So my state requires me to have it on as well which is pain; dealer never drilled holes which I'm fine with so I went right on amazon and found a $30 one. It's knock off and it works...but honestly I wish I spent the money on either the platypus plates or the one from US Milworks is really really good.

I went the cheap route and it's not the best but it does it's job

u/tljyb · 3 pointsr/subaru

If you can find a direct fit one that goes into the tow hook, go for that one. My Saabaru has one, I think it's Rho (http://www.rhoplate.com/) or something.. Grimmspeed makes one, too.

If you don't mind drilling into the bumper (after cutting all the plastic out of it to fit the FMIC into mine, I wasn't about to hesitate doing 2 screw holes), you can get the Autozone one.. this seems to be the one I got: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0013HP98C -- except I paid 10-12 bucks, I think!

Or just a plain black frame would work. BMW sells it for a markup, like $40.

it's a license plate frame, but yes.

u/The_Still_Man · 1 pointr/Volvo

Whoops, didn't notice you don't have a front plate. (something like this is what I was referring to: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N12ZYSD/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
The harness would be for wiring the lights (like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WMPGLYU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

If you don't want to go that route, better bulbs would be a better option than LEDs. LEDs when not in the correct housing, will throw light everywhere, making it worse for you and other drivers. Most of then are cheap pieces of crap anyway.

u/BoomFoxxy · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

I'm headed that way with my Crosstrek next Tuesday! Love the tires. Something I just replaced (after two years of use because the paint faded a bit) that might look sharp with your black highlights are these License Plate Frames. I always notice people's plates when I'm on road trips. Thank you for removing dealership frames if you had them originally, those irrationally infuriate me.
Obligatory not a salesperson, not affiliated in any way, that's just a normal old Amazon link and I'm not making money.

u/darks0ul56 · 4 pointsr/WRX

Do you mean using the Japanese standard holes for a license plate? If so I bought mine on amazon. It came with 2 screws and you place the rubber screw expander first then the screw and its super sturdy. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EKVUJC8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LSYW6QI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 you can mount it centered but i like it over to the side. since the bumper has a slight angle in the front.

u/gethsolar · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

Also, might I suggest this front license plate bracket. It's much thinner and better looking than the OEM one, isn't crooked, and doesn't attach with any goop.


u/PunnyYolks · 4 pointsr/BMW

I used these brackets instead of drilling holes into my bumper.

This is what it should end up looking like.

u/eastskier · 1 pointr/WRX

Satin black slim frame on the back, and not running a plate on the front. but I have a second satin black one that I put on with the Perrin plate relocator for inspections once a year (MA actually takes pictures of mounted plates during inspections). I also use plastic black caps to hide the hardware. Is low profile.

Super cheap: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00236XLA0/ref=mp_s_a_1_47?ie=UTF8&qid=1524611517&sr=8-47&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=license%2Bplate%2Bframe&dpPl=1&dpID=31Gntk2mgnL&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1

u/edom31 · 3 pointsr/mazda3

I use this on both my cars.

It is practical and really does not add/takes away from the look. A bit expensive, kinda... but it solves the issue of plate-to-metal and it gives it a neutral look.

u/InsertPlayerTwo · 2 pointsr/ToyotaTacoma

I couldn’t find one specifically for my bull bar, but the Westin one worked just fine.

I believe this is what you're looking for:

Aren't there already holes in your front bumper? If so, you can use this mount which has expansion fasteners sized for those holes. I've been using a kit like it for 20 months now without issue.

u/xj4me · 2 pointsr/Jeep

You can use Amazon. There is a seller there who does them. Just follow the directions carefully. http://www.amazon.com/Custom-Engraved-To-Order-License/dp/B009HIHVS0

Just moved my license plate to the side on my 2018 Mazda 3 touring hatch.

Here's what I used if anyone's interested. It sticks out by an inch if you look at it from the sides though that's the only dumb part but to me it's worth.


u/baddst · 1 pointr/mazda3

There's a bunch of options, but for the price you can't beat this one. I had a slatted one and it sucked. There are others but few have adjustable positions. This one worked well because the location can be dialed in by using the different holes and pivoting the frame which is what I needed for my accessory grill lighting. I recommend you use loctite or a rubber washer though.

Or a way cheaper version: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EKVUJC8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_ieztzbN8TC4N8

I used to like the off-center look but quickly wore off since everyone seems to have it nowadays. That and the fact that the rod connects directly to the frame making a fender bender potentially cost way more than it should.

I just got two plain black frames to go with my 2018 Black Edition off of amazon.

I'm in Texas and a front plate is "required" I just ordered one of these, it flips under your body work. I just hate anything that detracts from that lovely carbon pack.


u/juaquin · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

You can do neutral but still have a frame. I think without a frame it looks unfinished and "tacked on" if that makes sense. Just something simple like this.

u/call-me-neo · 1 pointr/nissanfrontier

Maybe something that doesn’t need drilling into the front of the bumper, like this?

I had this issue with my volkswagen and I use a mount that's connected to my tow hook.

u/Foghorn225 · 2 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

So MannyCoon already answered the part about the spacing of the existing holes, but here you go. This license plate actually uses these holes.

u/pyro2927 · 2 pointsr/camaro

Should have gotten one of these.

u/Anton-LaVey · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I have the CravenSpeed Platypus, it sits flush on my bumper (I added a strip of weatherseal to the back to disallow chafing). Goodluck, /u/porktube

u/DrunkardRP · 1 pointr/subaru

I used the GrimSpeed plate relocation kit. It does stick out about 1.5" from the bumper, but you can adjust the angle of the plate.

Here are photos when I installed it 3 months ago.

I bought it on Amazon.

u/Bertrum · 1 pointr/seinfeldgifs

You can buy ASSMAN license plates from Amazon. Although I don't know if they would be recognized by the DMV.

u/ScreamingChicken · 2 pointsr/WRX

I used this to get that look.

u/idokamaroq · 2 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

I have the plate relocation kit that goes into the tow hook spot. You could get a bracket/adapter that mounts into the Japanese holes that come from the factory. I think the SSD light bar also has license plate mounting tabs if you wanted to go all-out :P

u/tuck3r53 · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

You can always use something like this. Which is probably what I would do if I had to have a front plate.

u/32F492R0C273K · 3 pointsr/WRX

Here is one.

But you can find more if you search for "Subaru front plate adapter" or something along those lines.

u/coke_can_turd · 1 pointr/WRX

It's to prevent obstructing air to the FMIC. WRX is top mount, so it's just for aesthetics, or to avoid drilling the bumper even though these exist.

u/rustysurfsa · 1 pointr/mazda

I used this on my 3. You still drill holes but they're underneath and hidden from view. Sorry don't have pictures but if you look in the reviews you will find some.

u/Harvir_K · 5 pointsr/cars

I brought this one


I got the manual one because apparently the remote control ones weren’t waterproof and stopped working.

u/TheDenvermetermaid · 18 pointsr/Denver

You can, however with the cold temps the zip ties usually will fail fairly quickly. I'd suggest a light gauge wire for a more permanent solution.

However I would suggest this: https://www.amazon.com/Show-Go-License-Plate-Holder/dp/B001E4E0ZW

u/BrixSeven · 6 pointsr/minimalism

I have one of these. Similar effect, just a black boarder that doesn't eat into the plate. The ones that go over the front of the plate make it annoying to put on the new stickers.


u/charlesca · 2 pointsr/Honda

I have the GROM and I do not like it. In order to switch input sources you have to hit the right buttons within a couple seconds of changing to CD. It's a PITA and I wish I would have never purchased it.

Consider getting a USA SPEC http://www.scienceofspeed.com/products/interior_performance_products/NSX/USASpec/

For the license plate, options include http://www.scienceofspeed.com/products/exterior_performance_products/NSX/ScienceofSpeed/Stealth_License_Plate/ or http://www.amazon.com/Show-Go-License-Plate-Holder/dp/B001E4E0ZW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1394685661&sr=8-2&keywords=front+license+plate+holder

u/hamtonp · 1 pointr/teslamotors

I've been driving in my current car for over 11 years and haven't been written up for a ticket... yet. I've been stopped for other things: expired registration, speeding, no full stop at stop sign but not for front plate. Maybe because the car is black and they don't notice.

My wife car on the other hand I was stopped for no front plate. I put the plate on and went the court house with a picture. There was a minimal fee. I think it was $10. Her car is white.

I plan to drive plateless until I get caught. If I do, I plan to either install the tow hook plate or the sliding under bumper plate. See here: https://www.amazon.com/Show-Go-License-Plate-Holder/dp/B001E4E0ZW

u/-Aaron- · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

The bumper on the car comes standard with the Japanese mounting holes and then two "dimples" on the plastic just above the Japanese mounts. The "standard" way Subaru mounts the plates for the US is to screw the license plate directly into the dimples in the front of the car. This puts holes in the plastic, only connects the plate at the top two screws and is kind of a crappy way to mount the plate. I think the official Subaru plate just gives you a metal backplate to screw through, you still are drilling into the bumper plastic.

A cleaner solution is to ask the dealer not to drill into the bumper at all. Then get an adaptor like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EKVUJC8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It screws into the Japanese molded holes in the bumper with expanding screws and provides a flat plastic plate with four mounting holes for your plate, centered on the bumper. It avoids needing to drill any bumper holes and mounts the plate nicely.

u/failagain-failbetter · 1 pointr/rav4club

Had the same problem. Very disappointed there isn’t a tow hook on my XLE premium. If you have a tow hook I would recommend getting a tow hook plate holder.

After buying several mounts I settled on this mount. Bought a couple wingnuts and washers and it became a no drill front mount.

Why you should be able to throw matches in the woods, a story:

A young man was hiking one day in a wooded grove. As he was traversing a particularly steep slope he came across a cougar. The cougar came toward him and trapped him against a nearby tree. The men was scared for his life, as he had no weapons to defend himself. He reached into his pockets and found a box of matches. "Are cougars afraid of fire?", he thought. With his life in danger the man struck a match and threw it towards the cat. It hissed; they definitely don't like fire. He struck another and hurled it in the beast's direction, hitting its nose. The cat turned away and ran. Throwing matches in the woods saved this man's life.
