My new E-ZPass® transponder arrived today. The battery died on my old one...

So, I had to Plasti-Dip it black like my old one.

I peel the Plasti-Dip off the old E-ZPass® before I send it back . The stuff comes off easily..

I Plasti-Dip the E-ZPass® so when it is placed on my front windshield it is not an eye catcher , an eyesore... a white blotch on my windshield.

Takes but a few minutes to coat it with a few coats of black Plasti-Dip.

I cover the whole thing, even the white label on it.

The Plasti-Dip coating has absolutely no impact on the transponder being read by E-ZPass® system receivers along the road or at the toll both areas.

I'd say the trick to this Plasti-Dip the E-ZPass® thing is how you fasten it to the windshield afterwards.

Most everything you use to secure the transponder, to the windshield is white and or stands out like a sore thumb...

Except these... and these are black in color, not shiney, hold strong .....and also with these, you can easily remove the E-ZPass® transponder when necessary.

I finally did this. What a great idea! I love it. So much better when looking at the Jeep head-on. I found black command strips at home cheapo.

I opted to let the sticker show, but just a preference.

I've done this to the ez pass transponders. Also had no issues with reception. In fact, I just removed the sticker entirely after emailing myself a photo of it for later reference.

I love the idea of mounting the plate version somewhere else.

Sorry for the late reply. I left it on license plate vs putting in the bumper. No one has stolen it yet :)

Hate to bring up an old thread, but what's the advantage of using plasti-dip vs black spray paint? I have two now that I used black spray paint and black Velcro. Need to get another and wanted to know the difference.
Thanks

@JAF1

When battery finally dies in the EZpass, the pass will need to be returned/ exchanged .....you get a new one with fresh battery.

I know I will not get credit for a returned EZpass that has been painted black.... has been defaced.

With plasti dip, you can easily peel off the plasti ... clean up the pass and send it back for full return credit/exchange.
