Mine was screwed, wonky, so I refitted it and mine is now both stuck and screwed with anti-undo screws.

Can't be too careful these days. Petrol prices have started a spate of number plate thefts.

Ive had my new ones stuck on for about 4 or 5 months now using halfords double sided tape with no issues. In summer it was getting a jetwash every fortnight and they are still stuck solid.

I once stuck one on a Transit with silicone and it was still quite happy 5 years later.

As kremmen says though the only issues are people stealing them but the majority of screwed on plates are only a standard philips screw which someone could easily whip off if they wanted to anyway.

I 'dumped' the original Dealer stuff, earlier this year ...

Fitted (colour-coded) slim and logo-free frames, that [robbo51] found for me ...

German company - frames are screwed (concealed) to the plastic front and rear - what a mess there was when I took off the originals ! - several huge and unecessary holes at both ends - all now filled in and resprayed ...

The plates (European standard size) are 'locked' into the frames - no visible screws \ fixings at all ...

Mine got stolen a while ago then used to steal fuel from the garage down the road. Not sure regular screws would help much, although I have seen anti-theft screws that won't undo with a regular driver, and there are tamper-proof plates that just break into pieces when someone tries to take it off.

There are a couple of indents in the rear hatch for using screws, and as it's a plastic tailgate no risk of rust. I always just used the extra-strong trim tape which worked fine.
