Do I Need An Adapter To Use The Axion?
A 3/4″ hardware attaches to ANY Axion when using a Whitmyer adapter. 1″ hardware attaches to ANY Axion natively. (Without any adapters needed). Whitmyer headrests are designed to accept a 3/4″ ball. So if you have a Whitmyer headrest you would want an AXION 19mm/3/4″ (Because they have a 19mm/3/4″ ball).
Snug Seat Adapters
These adapters allows use on a Snug Seat Headrest. The top adapter in the picture attaches to the back of the headrest and to the Snug Seat Headrest Hardware, and the bottom adapter is used to attach the Axion to the Snug Seat Headrest. This permits the Snug Seat Headrest to attach to the Axion 1 inch ball, then to the Snug Seat Headrest Hardware.
If you are planning to use the Axion with the Savant Headrest to replace the Snug Seat Headrest, you just need the back adapter, so you would order the adapter on the Savant Headrest page.
