How to Make a DIY Tablet Holder for a Car Headrest

This DIY tablet holder for a car headrest is sponsored by RYOBI for their June “On the Road” theme! All project ideas and opinions belong to Thrift Diving. 🙂



If you’ve got kids or grandkids, you know the scenario during a road trip: “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Arrrreeee weeeeee theeeerrreee yeeeeetttt??!”

The only way to really soothe them is with electronics, right? Something that’s going to stimulate their little minds long enough to give you a reprieve from the incessant questions.

The other thing that keeps them occupied are food and snacks.

But electronics and food don’t mix!

Little greasy fingers smearing the screen, with the catastrophic threat of a spilled drink on the display is enough to cause anxiety for any parents! 🙂

This summer I’m planning a couple of small road trips with the family and electronics are the last thing I want to worry about while we’re on the road!

The theme this month over at RYOBI Nation is “On the Road.” I knew instantly what would save my sanity (and our electronics!) during a road trip: DIY tablet holders for the car headrest!

With my sons’ little hands free while they watch movies on the tablets, there’s less chance of damaging it. Plus, it keeps them entertained for hours at a time to make the trips go much smoother!

The DIY tablet holder for the headrest simply straps on very easily and is adjustable.



Before your road trip, kids can pick their movie selection, buckle in, and–BOOM!–you’re on the road and they’ve got something to keep them occupied for at least a good hour and a half!

And no threats of spilled water or greasy chips on the tablet, either!

    Pinned 6/30. This is my month! I feel it! We are getting ready to list our house for sale and find something new. I have faith I’ll need new tools in a new (to me) house.

  3. I love this project idea. We’re looking forward to a family road trip to Washington, D.C. this summer. These tools would be an awesome addition to the tools we have today. We bought a foreclosed home and are working hard to fix it up and make it ours.

    Pinned 6/27. (Maybe even twice today.)
