The Nintendo Switch is a great console for on-the-go and can be made even better when you have one of the best Nintendo Switch car seat mounts. It can be used to keep rear-seat passengers entertained for hours, regardless of age, with minimal fuss. A car seat mount will also prevent arm strain and neck from using the Switch for an extended time. If you don't know where to start looking, no worries - we have you covered. Here are some of the mounts and holders that we recommend:
For more than one person
Absolutely no tools are required to install this headrest, which makes it very simple to install. It is also fully rotatable and will fit devices from 4.5-inch to 10-inch wide. The best feature is that it can slide across to one side, giving all passengers in the rear a chance to view the screen - great for two or more passengers!
Best budget option
This is the cheapest option here but by no means the worst. This headrest holder attaches directly in-between the posts of the headrest itself – please note that the distance between the headrest posts must be 5.1-5.9 inches. Otherwise, it will not fit. It is rotatable 360 degrees, and there is a hole in the side of it. For example, if you try and mount a smartphone horizontally, it will still be charged, which is quite convenient.
This is very similar to the Lamicall Tablet Holder. It connects to the headrest posts similarly. The attached device can be rotated 360 degrees as well as being moved up and down. It also holds the device with diagonal clamps, which is an interesting design choice - this helps to keep both the charging port and the headphone jack free.
For the headrest post
Unsure if your vehicle's headrest-posts are suitable for most normal mounts? Or do you have a vehicle with some interesting non-standard seats? This may be the mount for you! As long as the headrest post has a diameter of fewer than 0.74 inches, the single-arm mounting design should fit most vehicles.
Switch specific mounting
If you are concerned about damage from attaching something to the headrest post and only want a mount, then this headrest is the way to go. It can be connected by wrapping the stretchy material around the headrest itself, and then the Switch screen is held in place by a secure silicone netting. This ensures that no damage should come to the Switch either.
Enjoy your drive
A few caveats must be considered before purchasing any of these best Nintendo Switch car seat mounts. Note that the power and volume buttons are on the Switch console's top, so it's best to buy a mount that keeps the Switch clamped in place horizontally. Also, keep in mind that not all headrests are the same. Some mounts may not fit specific vehicles with strange seat designs – please be sure to check your own car's headrests before buying a mount to ensure that it fits.
There are plenty of great Switch accessories for long-lasting play wherever you go. Most mounts are fairly inexpensive, so they shouldn't break the bank. Some mounts may also be able to hold mobile phones and tablets too. I would also recommend having a suitable method of keeping the devices charged, like the Anker car charger.
All of these car headrest mounts are viable options. Still, my favorite case is the Macally Car Headrest Mount Holder due to its versatility and ability to entertain more than one passenger in the rear seats. For those on a budget, the Lamicall Tablet Holder would be a superb choice. For those with cars that have fiddly or non-standard head posts, the Ansteker Car Headrest Tablet Holder should suit anyone with an unusual vehicle configuration.
