    This is the 3rd mirror we tried and this will be the last. As our rear facing car seat is placed in the middle of the back seat there is no headrest. The other mirrors (Brica) we tried were “apparently” supposed to be able to install without a headrest but they did not work out in the slightest. Both fell over within minutes. Fast forward through dozens of failed attempts later to get them to stay up and then we found this one on Amazon. It straps to the adjacent headrest (with two buckle straps) and pivots which ever way you need it to. You can also adjust the angle for which ever way you need as well. It has never fallen down or off but every two weeks or so I give the straps a quick pull to ensure they are secure. This mirror has worked in the following cars for us thus far:

    - ’06 Hyundai Sonata
    - ’07 Hyundai Santa Fe
    - ’08 Ford F150
    - ’11 Chevy Equinox

    Hope this helps!

    I’ve used the Brica/SafeFit Baby In Sight Mega Mirror for the past 20 months to view my rear-facing daughter, and I’ve been pretty happy with it. Since I’m expecting another daughter at the end of the month, I came to Amazon to purchase another one, when I came across the Britax Back Seat Mirror. It didn’t have any reviews yet, but it looked nice, and I like Britax, so I decided to give it a shot. Let me tell you, I love this mirror.

    It is sooo easy and quick to install, get secure, and angled correctly. The nice part is that it has straps to secure it to the headrest and then a pivot mount to adjust the angle, so you can secure it first and then adjust the angle. With the Baby In Sight mirror, you have to angle it and secure it all in the same step. I also had to stuff a blanket behind the mirror in order to keep it secure and at the right angle. The Britax is so much easier.

    The other thing I love about this mirror is how clear it is. It’s almost as clear as my rear view mirror, unlike the Baby In Sight, which is kind of blurry.

    I highly recommend this mirror. I like it so much that I am buying another one to replace the Baby In Sight mirror I had been using for my older daughter.

    (For reference, I drive a Volvo XC60.)

    The Duct Tape Fix, October 2, 2013

    I have to agree with everyone else who is saying that the ball and socket joint that allows this mirror to be placed at an angle is extremely loose. The thing that sold me on this mirror was the fact that it could be securely fastened to the seat’s headrest by two clasp joints, and not flimsy velcro; and the fact that it could be angled.

    The two clasps that wrap around the headrest vertically and horizontally are great. I haven’t had any trouble with the straps coming loose (if they do start to come loose, I’ll probably just get them as tight as I need them, then put a safety pin right below the clasp so that the straps can’t slide loose).

    The ball and socket joint that allows you to angle the mirror is NOT great! It’s way to easy to bump the mirror when you’re putting the child in their car seat…of course, I didn’t usually notice the mirror had been bumped out of the right position until after I’d get in to drive. If, on the off chance you DON’T bump the mirror out of the right angle, it will be happy to move out of the right angle itself during the drive. You really don’t even have to hit a bump in the road to cause the mirror to start pointing downward, so that all you can see is the child’s feet.

    I like the mirror, for the most part, so the easiest fix for me was to put it on the headrest, get it in the perfect position (this is a 2 person job, unless you want to run around from the front seat to the back seat a million times), then duct tape it at the ball and socket joint. It’s easy to get it out of position even while you’re applying the duct tape, so it really does take two people to do this–the person who normally is driving the car, and someone else in the back seat (of course, I did this in my driveway, not while driving!). Ever since I duct taped the mirror’s ball and socket joint, I haven’t had an issue with it getting out of place during a drive or bumping it out of place when I put the child in her car seat. Also–a plus with the duct tape method is that if you need to move it from one side of the back seat to another and re-angle it (or to another car completely), you just take the tape off and re-tape it once you get it in its new location (I saw some reviewers say they were going to try super glue!).

    I haven’t had an issue with the actual base of the mirror sliding down on the headrest (it has a sort of rubbery type backing on it that helps it not to slip) or the straps loosening themselves. I realize that they can’t make this ball and socket joint extremely tight, because then you wouldn’t be able to adjust it, but they really don’t need to make it this loose! Oh, and a plus with this mirror is that it’s (supposedly) shatter proof, instead of just shatter “resistant.”
