2 cars -1 number plate : attachement system

Hello,
In your experience what is the best attachement system for switching number plates between two cars?

I have the simple plastic one that is supposed to unclip easily, but the front plate is not at all easy to put on or take off (probably due to shape of bumper...)

Thanks

The best ones I have found are from the dealer Autobritt in Geneva. They are a softer style plastic and have an easy to lift slider. 6chf each.

The hard plastic ones where the numberplate is clipped into can get brittle over time - and the traditional sliding ones can get very stiff.

Yes that looks about right... any other similar systems, less TISsy priced?

Actually I will buy them, thank you! Probably pick up in the shop to save shipping.
