Sold separately, Arkon's Universal Tablet Headrest Mount ($40) and Universal Windshield Tablet Mount ($40) are hard plastic and rubber kits that enable iPads and other tablets to be attached either to the back of a front seat headrest for rear-seat viewing, or to a long windshield-mounted pipe for front seat access. Both kits come with a spring-loaded, pressurized plastic and rubber-tipped frame that can grab and hold almost any tablet, expanding two of its four feet as necessary to accommodate encased or unencased devices. The Headrest Mount uses screw hooks to attach to the metal pipes in most headrests, and the Windshield Mount uses a suction cup and a 14" to 18.5" extending arm with a locking clasp in the center. Ball joints enable your iPad to turn on whatever orientation you prefer, and tilt to the viewing angle you like.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
