Lejeune says the law regarding car mascots has not changed in 20 years, though 10 years ago it started producing nylon fixings to meet European guidelines.

Steel fixings are still permitted in the UK but in the event of an accident one could be prosecuted.

Lejeune recommends nylon fixings (as the mascot will shear off at a much lower force), and encourages customers to mount it up the bonnet, near the windscreen. For further information call Lejeune on 01353 740444.
