A long car trip made by three or more people usually means that the driver is talking to the passenger in the front seat, while the third and other passengers (often children) pass the time looking at the screen of a smartphone or tablet. For the convenience of such a traveler, it will not be superfluous to acquire a special holder for the headrest of the car.

Why do you need such a device? First, it’s great for watching movies on the go. The holder frees your hands to fall asleep without dropping your iPad on the floor, and is ergonomically designed to avoid bending your neck and looking down. In addition, the child will not constantly click on the screen, minimizing the movie window and clicking on advertising links, as is often the case.
Passenger car holders can be roughly divided into several types, but they are all united by one condition – the front seats of your vehicle must be equipped with head restraints on metal rods.
The most popular, due to their low cost and simplicity of design, are diagonal holders, which consist of a base chassis that attaches to the headrest with two brackets, as well as the stand itself, which grips the corners of the tablet.
The extendable stand length range is usually 20-30 cm, which is sufficient for most popular tablet models. The swivel mount allows you to adjust the tilt level, as well as place the device horizontally and vertically.

The slightly more sophisticated design of the holder offers a sliding bezel with four support points for the tablet.
The advantage of this mount is the small gap between the headrest and the tablet, which is especially important for small cars. The cost of this type of holders is practically the same as in previous models.
You can buy them here or here (prices and models are slightly different).

If several people usually travel on the back sofa, then you should consider the option with a holder that is attached between the front seats.
Of course, this is not the best idea from a safety point of view, but it allows you to move the tablet (and in some models there is also a separate mount for the smartphone) for a rather long length, making viewing comfortable for several passengers or allowing you to lie on different sides when watching a movie for one viewer.
