Houston EZ Tag Question

So I am moving down to Houston at the end of December and I was advised to get an EZ tag. I received it in the mail the other day, and the instructions state to put it 4 inches down and 2 inches to the right of your rear view mirror. Frankly, that looks like crap.

I have legal tint 4 inches down on my windshield. Would it work if I put it 2 inches from the top of my windshield?

Or should I get tint installed 6 inches down on my windshield prior to me installing the EZ tag? Hopefully that would hide that ugly sticker. Would it even work behind the tint? From what I've seen online, it should.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Several years ago I installed an EZ Tag behind a tint strip on my windshield with no was not "legal" tint...super dark

They also make one for your front plate. It's a black bar that attaches to the bottom two holes of the plate.

They will be detected as long as they are inside your car. I keep mine in my center console and have never had trouble.
