Exclamation Hd curved license plate install help

Ok i know its not rocket science, but if anyone has installed this i need a suggestion. I cant fit my hand between the tire and fender to loosen the "fasteners" ...i call them BOLTS . If anyone can recommend a socket or tool that will allow me to get to those i sure as hell would appreciate it. Tried a long open ended wrench, a crescent wrench....Just cant seem to get to that damn things. Thanks guys!

It’s easier to get to if you put bike on a lift so rear wheel hangs down, gives you more space.

Here’s a video of intall if it helps

I used a “universal” socket with a 6” extension on my ratchet... easy using this setup.

I use a slim ratchet from Easy Red and a shallow 1/2" socket and can take the bolts out without removing the rear wheel. One end will accept bits and the other end is 1/4" drive. Well worth the money!!

I did mine before I got my lift. reached up in there with a gear wrench to remove the bolts. was a pain with my large mitts but I got it done.

What he said!
My best buddy had that tool. Made it work great.

Once I make up my mind, I'm full of indecision.
