I was very excited to be given the opportunity to review the Cardiff Booster Seat Headrest, I’ve been anxiously awaiting its arrival in Canada. The Cardiff Booster Seat Headrest is a great solution for slumpy sleepers, perfect for the road trips that summer brings.
As we have all seen, driving a long distance with tired passengers creates less than ideal seating situations. To be properly protected by their vehicle seat belt passengers, adults or children, need to be seated correctly. The Cardiff Booster Seat Headrest eliminates the need to lean out of position, looking for any side pillar or window in an attempt to have a place to rest your head while relaxing on the road.
With the multiple adjustment options the product can comfortably be used by various sizes and ages. Due to the width of the headrest it may not be able to be fully extended downward for larger preteen or adult riders, due to shoulder width, even still there is still ample support for sleeping as seen below with my 12-year-old tester in a truck with minimally adjustable head restraints.
Installation was very simple and all required tools are included. In order for this product to be used, the vehicle must have a head restraint that has an adjustable height as the Cardiff Booster Seat Headrest attaches to the posts of the vehicle head restraint. In one instance the headrest was not able to be installed in a test vehicle due to the diameter of the vehicle head restraint support post, however I feel this will be an uncommon issue.
When not in use the headrest can be rotated out of the way and is easily brought down into sleeping position once needed. The fabric cover can be removed and cleaned, which is great for those drool inducing car naps.
This product is for use by either a child in a backless belt positioning booster, a child who is large enough to ride safely in an adult seat belt, or an adult. This product is not for use in conjunction with a harnessed seat or high-backed belt positioning booster. This product does not aid in proper belt fit and is not intended to replace a high-backed belt positioning booster for a young child. As with any aftermarket or unregulated product, the use of the Cardiff Booster Seat Headrest is a parental decision.
I’m pleased to announce that ISSI has provided three sets of Cardiff Booster Seat Headrests to give away to Canadian residents. The reviewed product was given to me by ISSI, no other compensation was given.
