    I am wanting to attach my ipad in the car for my daughter to watch movies in the back seat. Any way to do this?

    Awesome! Where will your shop be - on this site or something separate?

    Get a piece of string or twine. Just wrap it around the headrest. Put the ipad in the Apple case. Now just fold the front cover back and drape it over the twine/string. It will hang and look perfect.

    Don't count on iPadOne. He has been saying the same ole BS since day one, in fact its like an annoying broken record. There are actually several options already out there. Try a google search, in the mean time check this one out iPad Accessories/ Headrest Mount

    Actually it will not. If you look around the web and even this site you will find that many people are using this exact setup to mount the ipad in their car. If you use a small bungee cord the friction between the case and cord will keep it quite rigid.

    Tie an ipad to the headrest with twine and trust it to be stable. C'mon.

    Doesn't sound very stable, but it works.
