    Hi. My kids get got in the back rear facing seats in the summer. I ran a 12 V lighter socket back there from the front one by tucking a cable under the carpet and seat. It looks great and doesn't get kicked.
    Then bought 2 fans that rotate and have 2 speeds on one pedestal. I screwed a plastic beam to the back of it. The beam just gets compressed as you lock the seats in place.

    It doesn't move at all which is nice. Each kid can control their fan position. And they can turn it on and change the speed. And if they leave it on when they get out, and only I get back in, then I just pull the extension cord out of the 12 V socket between the driver/passenger seat to remotely shut it off. Works great.
    I hope this helps someone else.
    This is simple and effective. And it takes 1 minute to remove when winter comes (saves wear).. And the same amount of time to replace in summer. IMG_20190428_123649_exported_5226458233756009012.jpg IMG_20190428_123700.jpg MVIMG_20190428_123702.jpg .

    Do you have a link to the parts/fans you bought? This looks pretty cool and I have the same issue with air back there.

    I have 2 USB clip fans that I clip on top of the 3rd row seat head rest to blow cooler air back there. Works well.

    What kind of platform do you use and how do you lock and secure it to the back seat?

    See pic. I attached a plastic bar to the fan. When you lock the seat in the fabric grips it and holds it perfectly in place
