On the Go With Car Headrest Mounts for iPad 2
If you want to provide your kids with entertainment while you're on long car trips, you might want to purchase an iPad stand that mounts onto the back of your driver- or passenger-side headrest. eBay makes it easy to find, sell, and purchase these types of car accessories, and here's some basic information about iPad car mounts that you should consider before you make a decision.What types of iPad headrest mounts are there?
While there are dozens of different models of new and used iPad headrests mounts in this collection, they can all be categorized into one of two groups:
- Stationary mounts: These types of mounts can only face one direction. The stationary mount style is more stable while you're in transit, which might make one of these mounts the perfect choice if you like to explore down county roads or head off the road altogether. They are also usually very simple to mount onto the back of your front seat headrest.
- Swivel mounts: Some mount models, on the other hand, are attached to swivel arms. One end of the mount attaches to the headrest, and the other end connects to the iPad. There is a movable arm between these two ends. With this style of headrest mount, you can usually angle the iPad right or left and up or down. This positioning factor makes it easy to choose where you direct the screen of your iPad. Overall, swivel mounts are geared for smooth city or highway driving.
The affordable iPad mounts in this collection on eBay connect to headrests in a variety of different ways. Some of these mounts may connect to the headrest directly with straps that go over the top of the headrest vertically. However, many iPad headrest mounts attach to the metal posts that connect headrests to their associated seats. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove the headrest to install one of these mounts in your car.How do you pick an iPad car mount?
If you're planning to install an iPad car mount primarily to keep your kids entertained, one factor to consider as you make a decision is how many kids you will have in your car. If you have more than one child in your back seat, you may want to consider a swivel mount or purchase a mount for each iPad.
