How to Install OnFair Car Headrest DVD Monitors

Headrest DVD player installation can be considered "Very easy" for some people while "Very difficult" for others.  This will mostly depend on the skills and comfort level of the person doing the installation and the vehicle the headrest monitors are being installed in.  The key factors in determining the degree of difficulty are:

  1. Will you be running cables through the car seats and if so, do the car seat backs come off for easier access?  Sometimes simply removing the back of the car seat can be the most difficult part of the entire install.  In most cases there will be tabs, clips or velco near the bottom of the seat as a starting point at removing the back cover. 
  2. Powering the headrests to the fuse box may become the second hardest step of the install.  If the fuse box is far away, we highly recommend running a single 14 gauge wire from the fuse box back to both headrests rather than running 2 or more wires to the fuse box.  Power both red wires to the fuse and ground both black wires to an unpainted bolt on the metal frame of the car.  If powering at the fuse box seems too difficult, most packages come with the cigarette plug power option if powering to the fuse box is too difficult.
  3. Connecting the wires is next.  Connect both the RCA yellow, red and white wires together and also the wire assembly to the headrest cable that ran down through the seat. 

TIP: be sure to tape these connections before hiding the wires under the seats or under the carpet to avoid any cables coming disconnected later.

TIP: Test the power cable connections with either the fuse box or the cigarette power plugs before installing to make sure you have a good connection and all cables and units are working as they should.  This will save time in case something needs to be fixed or exchanged.

Please note: While every vehicle is unique our installation guide will cover the basic steps to help you install your new OnFair headrest DVD monitors. Minor modifications may be required for a unique installation in your vehicle.

We’ve All Been There!

Let me paint you a word picture. You’re driving on route 66, it’s getting dark and your children are starting to get fussy. You take out their tablet but that’s when the fighting starts. They both want to hold it and play different games. Then comes the crying, then comes the screaming and finally you’ve had enough. You finally decide to pull over and play referee.

That’s when you see a car passing by with 2 children in the back seat laughing and enjoying themselves.
