How many sticky pads do I need?
The sticky pads are on a sheet of 5 pads. I applied properly, two pads will hold a number plate, but I would recommend 3 or 4. If you want to stick both plates, buy two sheets. If you're sticky one plate and screwing the other, then one sheet will stick one plate and then use one sticky pad on the screwed plate for extra security.
These sticky pads may seem expensive for what they are, but they work. We buy them from our number plate supplier so can trust the quality.
