No tools are required for these hooks, which slide easily on your car's existing headrest rails once the headrest is popped off.

Kitchen utensils are like bunnies. First, you have one. Then, you have a second. Then, you have a million and don't know where they all came from.

It's a good size, and comes in both white and gray.
