I got my stainless steel license plate frame and put it on. I also got the matching screws but they didn't go in easily. After the drivers side one went in, it won't completely tighten, it just keeps turning. It will come back out but I still don't want it to loosen up over time. Did anyone else have this problem? Can the bolt hole be tightened without disassembling the rear hatch?

Anyway here is a picture. Looks pretty good!

Try coating the screw with clear silicone screw it in and let it dry.
I did this with the crome screw covers that mine came with.

:D

Screws Didn't Fit

I didn't have a problem with the screws supplied by skrag. I suspect that your "first set of screws" was bigger and that the mounting holes were enlarged by the 1st set. Thus, the holes are now too big for the stainless screws provided by skrag.

IMHO, correct solution would be to replace the mounting bushings, shouldn't be a big deal. Additionally, do not over tighten the screws. The mounting bushings are plastic and will strip quite easily.
