This mount looks doubtful hanging off the bars of one headrest suspending your valuable tablet over thin air, but I needn't have worried. The locking mehanism onto the headrest bars is very strong and hold the tablet perfectly horizontal right where you need it. My iPad Pro sits in the bracket solidly and keeps all three kids entertained on long journeys. Top top is to mount iron the drivers headrest rather than the passengers as indicated in the instructions. Mounting on the passenger side puts pressure on the bracket so it works its way loose, mounting the other way up on the drivers side just makes the mount sit more securely as it pushes the clamps together.
Final tip, the iPad is held firmly for hours if the bracketbisnlevel or tilted slightly backwards, yolt the screen forward the vehicle movement and gravity mean the top will work its way free - but hey, that's gravity for you - sat level is perfect even for small children, so there is really no need to tilt forward so shouldn't be an issue.

"Extremely pleased with my purchase of the Verus 'Iron Shield' case & Olixar glass screensaver. great service from MobileFun, ordered late p.m. 31st August & delivered a.m. Friday 2nd September, in effect, a next day delivery - Thanks"
"Excellent service, will definitely use again! Bought a battery for a Samsung Ace 4 & the genuine article arrived, very glad to find a supplier of genuine parts!
Quick check for a fake - weigh it, 34/35g in this case is the real thing whereas 31g is a fake. Fake is always 3g lighter apparently. Only found this out after buying one (not from Mobile Fun)!Thanks again for the service Mobile Fun!! "

"Fab gadget, really pleased with it,"
"What fantastic customer service! I bought a phone holder for my wife's car, but it was not quite right. The returns process could not have been easier - no fuss, given pre-paid label, they use collect+, and prompt refund. I will definitely be shopping with you further! Well done!"
