Pro Tip....Get a bluetooth speaker and put it in the back seat. At first we had an FM transmitter to play the sound through the radio. We had to turn it up so loud to hear the dialogue my wife and i could hardly think and the kids wouldn't fall asleep. Portable bluetooth speaker solved that.
I liked it because my kids both had equal view of the ipad, although the kid sitting on the side where it is attached to the head rest it sort of seems as though it wants to face "away" from her (in my case.) This could be an adjustment thing as I didn't spend a lot of time on this part due to time...just put it in, set up the iPad and we took off on our road trip.
So this is the part that made it OK...imagine this....You are the driver, or the front seat passenger. The movie on the Ipad ends and your kids...mine can't reach the iPad...you can see where I am going. If your kids are old enough and have arms long enough to reach the iPad you might not need to continue reading and you would therefore, by default, say you like it or love it...for those who need to keep reading....You have to loosen the end knob that has the ipad tightened to turn the ipad around to get to it. It can be dangerous if you are driving...please do not attempt to try....I tried the blind reach with my older kid trying to guide my finger to push the right button but it rarely worked. I had to stop 2-3 times on a 6 hour road trip. Movies might be easier, but my kids don't have the attention span of 1.5 hrs yet so it's 30 min and I have to stop or hear them complain or fight with each other. Again, this might be something that can be fixed as I have not found the "play all" feature on tv shows which might solve my problem. Any solutions on the iPad 2 please let me know. Other tablets might have a play all feature or a remote controller. My other vehicle has the onboard entertainment system and it is nice to just....sorry, this is a review of the headrest mount.
I hope this helps someone...If I knew this, I might have looked for one that can easily flip 180 to face the front with a quick release...for manufactures...take note...or if there is one...I failed to realize this feature so it might benefit to market it.
So, I decided to say I liked it instead of it's ok because for the price, and how it holds the ipad securely and the fact that you can flip it over it is a good buy.
Of note...I found the end knob loosener thingy AFTER the trip was over and back home so I never got to try it out in action.
2. This unit is made of plastic (no surprise), but the ball joint area is a bit shorter and more robust and thus I'm hoping that it won't break. The ball joint /head is mandatory in that you can swivel the tablet in any angle / directino. The boom arm is the main innovation in that it allows more than one person (kid) in the back to view the screen. The boom arm is easy to adjust, the device itself is easy enough to attach to headrest (note: you need to have a car where the head rest actually comes out / has those two metal posts) and attaching the table to the device is easy. NOTE: I didn't read the specs on this thing, but it will NOT hold a mini-ipad (ie 7 inch tablet). This is for the regular tablet sizes (ie ipad). The potential problem with this device holding the larger tablets (which it is designed for) is again the weight issue and potential issue with longevity. With that being said, since I don't want the thing to potentially break and since I have all of my kids stuff on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (ie 7 inch), I just bungee the Samsung to this thing and it works well.
3. Overall a much needed product for those who need a tablet holder so that more than one kid can watch the tablet in the back seat. Tip: if you're going to use a tablet for the kids, definitely consider getting a cheap bluetooth speaker (portable) to pair with the tablet while on the road.
- Two clamps that secure tightly to the metal posts on a car's headrest.
- The arm is extendable and can be locked in to position.
- There are two sets of L brackets to allow for multiple configurations depending on the size of your tablet.
- The L brackets have rubber footing that securely hold the tablet.
- The screws that tighten the clamps to the headrest posts are very very thin. I can see them breaking if someone tightens them too much.
- The tablet mount is held to the extendable arm using a ball joint. While a ball joint works well for a cell phone, my concern is that tablets are much heavier and that the ball joint would slip -- especially with car vibrations. It is necessary to tighten the ball joint a lot in order for it to stay put.
I do not deduct any stars for these concerns because they have not happened to me, but potential design flaws should be pointed out.
For my iPad, I use two long and two short L brackets (exactly as you see in the sample picture). This is the perfect size for the ipad. The position that of the iPad at the center of the car means both kids are able to see the videos comfortably on long car trips.

I was initially worried - the Hudl 2 is of a size which means that the tablet is held at the sides, rather than top and bottom, and I was concerned that it would eventually slip out. However, having used this for a number of long trips, from smooth French autoroutes through not so smooth French local roads, it's held the tablet strongly. It also has the benefit of having small rubber 'plugs' that you add to the corners which stop the feet from slipping out, something that was a problem on the previous mount (which would result in much swearing when a foot would pop out when trying to put the tablet in).
One point I will point out - if you've smaller kids in the back, and the front seat passenger needs to occasionally lean into the back to sort something out, tell them to mind their head. The knurled knob that tightens the angle of the mount is in just the right place to gouge you on the forehead (as my wife can attest to...)
