Rear Passenger Headrest iPad mount.

Post by dant »

Surprising no one, searching for "ipad mount" doesn't net any results about mounting it for the back seat. I'm looking for something to hold an iPad for my toddler. He's in a carseat behind the copilot seat in a da40, and having to look downward while watching things hasn't been helping the motion sickness. Does anyone have any suggestions on this front? All the headrest mounts I've found rely on the double-bar adjustable mechanism in cars with the exception of this one, which... I guess I'll try if no one else has any suggestions.

Did you try this? I'm now looking to get a mount for the exact same reasons as you, for my 4 yr old.

On January 9, 2023 in “ipad for da40” topic I posted a long description. I would have copied it here but couldn’t figure out how. That mount will work perfectly. It’s a iPad gooseneck with its base Velcroed to the floor. I bend it forward between the seats so the iPad is just above the throttle. But it could just as easily go back to be in front of your little one. It really was easy to make and works great. Let me know if you need the parts list.

I haven't been flying with him since, sadly. It looks like it will work though.

I usually have stuff in the floorboard so I don't think velcroing to the bottom will work for me. Or I guess bessey clamping, per the pictures. :)
