Nah, I just used just used stainless steel Phillips head screws for attaching the tabs to the tail light housing and a nut/locknut/bolt to hold the plate on. Nothing fancy. Most thieves would simply grab and yank the plate off anyway- just like the first time. Besides, there are only two screws to remove to get the license plate off where it attaches to the tabs rather than the six (three on each side) where the tabs are attached to the tail light housing.
I originally intended to use four screws on each tab, but it proved to be unnecessary (and also because the screw head wasn't going to clear the tail light housing). If you enlarge the photo, you can see the fourth hole I had drilled in the tab.
Truthfully, I don't think the license plate was stolen, but rather a malicious message sent from someone who didn't like my TT parked in front of my house- even though it was legally parked and there are no borough restrictions regarding parking RVs on the street.
