Mirror Use in Acura RDX and Honda Civic SI
We own two of these, one to go in a 2013 Acura RDX and the other for a 2013 Honda Civic SI. They have them both located in the back middle seat of the cars. I've only moved the one in the RDX a handful of times, however the clip has already broken. It still kind of works, but now it sits weird on the headrest. It was great until the clip broke. The one we have in our Civic isn't used or moved as much, so I can't speak to if that one has the same clip issue. The only other issue that I have is that the mirror moves really easily, so it is constantly getting knocked up and down and needs to be adjusted.

a great peace-of-mind
I was torn between purchasing a baby car mirror with a pivot/rotating arm or this flat one. I'm glad I got this flat mirror as it works well and it lies flat against my seat. It's easy to install and I put a burp cloth behind the top part of it to give it a better angle. The baby shows up clear and is not distorted. It doesn't move when I'm driving. Though sometimes I knock into the mirror when putting my baby in the car seat so I have to fix it, but figured if I had a mirror with a pivoting/rotating arm that I would be more likely knock into it as it sticks out further. I've used it in both a 2015 Subaru Legacy and 2015 Honda Accord in the back right seat's headrest. Yes, it does create a small blind spot because the mirror is bigger than the headrest which I was worried about but it's the trade off for seeing the baby clearly. I got this mirror because I drive alone and wanted to check on my baby to see if he was sleeping, unhappy, or in distress. Recently my little one was crying while I was on the highway and I checked in the mirror and saw his hat fell over his eyes so I reached my arm back and lifted up his hat. It is important to note that once it nighttime and dark outside, you can hardly see into the mirror unless you are at the traffic light or a car's headlights shine a certain way into your car.

Works with or without a head rest!
When I was pregnant I bought a mirror marketed to work without a headrest. It was supposed to be wedged behind the back of the seat, but that mirror hook thing was too thick and my seat wouldn't fasten back in place. I thought I was stuck driving without a mirror, which I didn't like. Luckily my SIL has a similar car and bought this mirror at Target, discovered it fit our cars, and told me about it. You wouldn't know from looking at it that it will work without a head rest, but it will! It was super easy to install, too.

Easy to install & adjust, and easy to see
There isn't much to this product, it's a mirror with a strap that fastens to your headrest near your child.
It's a snap to install. All you really have to do is fasten it down per the included instructions, and adjust the tilt a bit for different headrests. We have different head rest tilts in different cars that cannot be changed, so this must be adjusted, and it works just fine so you can get good visibility no matter what headrest you attach this to.
Good visibility of the child, and easy to install. Five stars.

Buy it only if you don't mind having to adjust it constantly...
The way it mounts on the headrest is rather poorly designed. Even though I had read this I though with some tinkering we can get it to stay secure. I was wrong. Every couple days it moves and we have to remember to adjust it. Already happened a few times when we forgot to check before leaving the house and only after we started driving we realized the mirror is tilted too high and not pointing at our baby.... COMPLETELY defeats the purpose.
Honestly not sure how this got passed product design...

Peace of Mind Mirror
My daughter was born prematurely and came home on oxygen and monitors. I found peace of mind in being able to glance back to check on her in the back seat. I found this mirror easy to install on the back seat headrest, light weight, and is large enough to easily view baby. The price was competitive with similar mirrors. We have been using it for almost 2 years now.

Good for newer cars
Worked well in my husband's new car but didn't work in my older car because the headrests are built into the seats and not adjustable so there was no way to secure it.

Overall well made.
This mirror seems to be well made. It is Very light weight yet holds up well to bring played with. The mirror is very clear especially for being plastic and easily wipes clean.
The reason for only 4 stars is because of the headrest attachment. Our back seats have to use the strap attachment that circles around (the headrest) and velcros together. I wish the velcro strip was longer to be able to tighten it more. It was made for a full size headrest as it fits the ones of our front seats snug and perfect, but are loose on the back ones since they are smaller. Requires more adjustment of the rear view mirror to see in it.

Very well made with good materials, does not rattle like other mirrors
This mirror is so much better than our panoramic style mirror that rattles. This mirror will only give you a clear picture of one kid per mirror since it doesn’t bugs eye but it gives a very view of that child. Mounts easily and stays in adjustment. Also like that it matches our brica seat protectors, will buy a second one

I got this so I could see baby if he was screaming. It’s a large mirror which is great but it doesn’t secure very well. I can’t have it flush against my head rest because then I can’t see baby so it’s a little floppy. Because of this the strap sometimes slides off the headrest. I drive a 2016 Nissan Murano
