So, it seems I’m the only one who likes to write, lol. That’s OK. Guess I’ve just got a lot of hot air to share :D.
There was a post on car-seat.org regarding headrests and car seats. It’s a frequent problem that headrests stick forward and interfere with the installation of some forward-facing car seats. These headrests are safe for people because they are closer to heads and reduce injury rates for whiplash and other neck injuries, but they push car seats forward making it so they don’t sit flush against the vehicle seat. A common practice has been to take the headrest out, flip it around backwards, and reinsert the headrest into position. Since the headrest is flat on the back, the car seat then sits flat against the vehicle seat. It also allows the headrest to stay in the vehicle so that if the car seat or booster needs to be removed for an adult passenger, that person has head support. Otherwise, best practice would be to just remove the headrest.
Sounds great, right? The perfect solution. Maybe not.
