nook No. The box that my headrests are in is in storage in California. Im heading out to California in about 3-4 weeks and will be going through some of the stuff I have in storage. If I get to the box Ill probably take the two front headrests out of storage. Ill put one on the drivers seat and the other one under the package shelf. Some of the stuff I used to keep on the back seat of my yaris

Does the Canadian yaris have different headrests I just had a 3rd Gen (2013) yaris rental (courtesy of the other drivers insurance company ) and I thought the seatbackheadrest combo was one of the best things about the car.
Wouldnt it work just anchored to one headrest avoiding the need to keep both seats adjusted the same
Sure is. Heres the equipment list in case anyone feels like building one 1x - 34 PVC electrical conduit (Lowes had 6ft pieces for 94 cents) 2x - 14 x 1-18 x 2-14 U bolts 1x - whatever combination of 14 bolt (for the threaded socket on your cam) and washernut to hold it in place. All holes were drilled through markings eyeballed by holding the pipe against the headrest).
Quote Originally Posted by yaris Hilton Wouldnt it work just anchored to one headrest avoiding the need to keep both seats adjusted the same Its only attached to one ) The framing of the photo makes the post look like it goes off-shot onto the other. It was just extra that was on there before I was sure how far I wanted the mounting bolt to extend to accommodate different types of cameras. Also worth
OK. I thought it looked like it was clamped to both headrests.
i have to taller adjustable headrests on the sides and one smaller adjustable headrest in the center in the back of my sedan...

They are all the same size and when lowered completely fit into about 1 12 indentations in the top of the seat back. The difference here might be standard rear folding seat vs. the 6040 folding seat. My RS has the same set up. Must be the norm here.

I would just put the low ones on the sides and tall in the middle till i can find the 3rd one. Let me know no thanks ) im happy with my setup. the 2 normal headrests for the normal passengers and the low-pro headrest for the bitch seat which is normally kept down to increase rear mirror visability.
On a totally unrelated note heres a vid I composed. The pics were taken with my phone which was stuck between the passenger headrest and the seat. httpwww.youtube.comwatchvVzky2EMFW3k
Theres a video of a girl installing the covers and I thought she just stretched the hole of the covers over the headrest adjusters. Do you have a pic of the other side of the lower seat cushion where its on the hand brake side Theres a grey carpeted flap on that side of the seat cushion. How did Clazzio handle that Also can you post more pics as you go along Thanks
I keep playing with the design - now its adjustable and metal and really pretty damn nice looking if I do say so myself. Better still this cost exactly as much to make as my PVC versions thanks to a local electronics store. I took apart and rebuilt a leg of a camera tripod to make this one - I can make two more with the spare parts plus I have a tripod swivel head assemby Works like a champ and has
