Eyeballs & headrests...

I posted previously that soon after I purchased the acceleration boost for the 3LR an optician diagnosed my wife with a detached retina in one eye as a result of an 'unidentified' sudden movement or jerk to her head (....well, actually she bought it as my birthday present but someone/something else got the blame for the eyeball incident)

I suggested that in future, rather than me having to pre-announce every right leg rigor mortis, it would be preferable to anchor her head. Several options were proposed but with a mind to preserving our 40 year marriage only one proved acceptable.... so I placed an order for these. They arrived today.

Quality is superb, an exact match to the black Model 3 PU leather & they can be adjusted for height or even used in the rear (seats) - quite firm against either the back of the head or nape of the neck depending on position & less likelihood of ocular damage or further marital distress.

(the supplier also produces in white & various logo versions....no affiliation)

EDIT: if they prove unacceptable I reckon the strap would fit behind the head at jaw level so there could be a further use

I've just received mine through today (from Russia), superb quality and feel very comfortable.... wish I'd purchased 2 !

My wife asked if they could be slightly softer so I removed the smaller rectangular internal foam which makes the headrest a little thinner but still quite firm. Then I used the larger piece as a template & cut two more of these from softer material - very easy to do & as they are hidden inside, the surface does not need to be perfect.

It makes no difference to appearance but they are now incredibly comfortable against the neck/head.

Others who have used the passenger seat since have commented very positively so I've emailed the manufacturer to suggest he also consider a more compliant internal foam.

Unfortunately it's been just over a month since I ordered these. Last tracking item was on 23/08 as departed Russia.

Contacted the seller who just guaranteed they'd turn up at some point :)

Anyone know of where to get these cheaper please?
Like the idea of them but can't justify the price for 2 atm

I'm sure I've seen an ad somewhere that offers a cloning service for wives: it must be possible to tweak the DNA so as to eliminate the mouth parts, which would make the head strap superfluous?

I’ve just gone to order some headrests from the supplier in the first post, but he currently has no items on eBay. I wonder if he’s fallen foul of the eBay mods for some reason?

Has anyone got an email address for him?

Just a heads-up in case anyone is interested in these headrests. The seller is now back on eBay. They are the same headrests but the listings now say “Any Embroidery” and don’t show the Tesla logo, so I guess he was probably asked to remove all the listings with logos. I’ve just ordered a pair. I will keep you posted.

So my order for two headrests and a pair of seatbelt cushions arrived yesterday by post from Russia. Despatch was two days after I ordered, and delivery took exactly three weeks.

The quality of these items is outstanding - lovely materials and gorgeous detailed manufacture. They can be completely personalised, from the material colour, the stitching colour and the embroidery.

I fitted them yesterday and went out for a short drive to test them out. The seat belt cushions work as expected, and the headrest cushion makes a big difference for me to the usefulness of the headrest. In my normal driving position my head doesn’t touch the seat headrest, but this cushion sits nicely in the back of the neck and is very comfortable.

All in all a ten out of ten from me.

I wonder how these perform in the event of a rear-end shunt? Unless they are incredibly soft it looks like they'd cause hyper extension of the neck and rotation of the head- exactly what the headrests are supposed to prevent or reduce.

The cushions are very soft, so hopefully that won’t be a problem.

At least if I do break my neck, I’ll be comfortable ;)
