For anyone that has used these head rests, they are great for my kids, but the expy has a bit of an issue. I have literally been using these for years, but just found out a couple weeks ago that the headrest design on the 2nd row is a pain in the but. I found out that the headrests were completely loose and would have flown off in an accident but I came up with a pretty simple solution. As you can tell in the pics, the expy has only one adjustment notch on the headrests, which is completely dumb. So I made a second one. My kids love the retractable headrests, they fall asleep in them all the time. Wish they didn't rattle as bad as they do though.

Can you elaborate a little on how you put the extra notches in?

What model do you have, as my 2019 Expy Plat 2nd row headrests have multiple notches and are solid.
