Hat Rider is a small rack that will attach to the headrest of the driver's seat or passenger seat of your vehicle. It'll hold multiple hats at once, keeping them clean, dry and out of the way, along with other accessories such as purses, scarves and laptop bags. This rack will work in any vehicle, regardless of whether it's a car, a truck, or an SUV, and can quickly be moved from seat to seat or vehicle to vehicle when necessary.
The cost of Hat Rider is $19.95 plus $5.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Hat Rider at the discounted price of only $5.95 for a total price of $31.85. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buyhatrider.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Hat Rider and has taken down the website. Hat Rider may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
To begin using your Hat Rider, pull the device open and wrap it around the metal pole on the right-hand side of your headrest, making sure that the device's spokes are on the right-hand side. There will be five available holes for the headrest's pole to rest in, so pick the one that puts your Hat Rider in the most convenient place for you. If there's little room between your headrest and the closest window, you may select a hole further to the right, and if there's a lot of room, you might choose one further to the left.
After you've aligned your device, ensure that the clamps on the back and left-hand side are locked in order to stop it from falling off as you drive.
Once the clamps are locked, push your headrest down so it's resting securely on the top of your Hat Rider. This will keep the apparatus from wiggling while you're driving, which, in turn, will keep your hats even more secure.
Each hat-holding apparatus is black, which means it'll look good in almost any vehicle, and it also won't show dirt as easily as it would if it were a lighter shade.
The Hat Rider is made of plastic, and each one is only a few inches wide, so you likely won't find it difficult to move from seat to seat or vehicle to vehicle. If you're the driver and are wearing a hat that day, you may want to attach the device to your seat. On the other hand, if your passenger has a lot of accessories to store during the drive, you might want to transfer it to their seat for the day.
Each of these hat holders has two spokes, so you'll be able to hang more than one hat ( or alternative accessory ) from each, regardless of how big or heavy they are. However, each spoke is sturdy enough to withstand the weight of more than one average-sized hat. Therefore, as long as your hats aren't incredibly heavy or wide, you'll likely be able to store more than two on your holder at any time.
As long as you have a headrest on your driver's seat or passenger seat, you'll be able to install this apparatus in your vehicle, no matter how old it is or what brand it is. That means if you get a new vehicle, or borrow someone else's for whatever reason, you won't need to worry about what you'll do with your hats.
Not only is Hat Rider compatible with almost all vehicles, it'll hold a wide variety of hats, ranging from the big hard hats that construction workers wear to small tennis visors. If you work at a job that requires a vest along with a hat, you may even be able to find room to store that on this apparatus.
If you hang your hats on this holder, that'll increase their likelihood of staying clean. They'll no longer be rolling around in the backseat or on the floor, two places that could be covered in crumbs or other dirt. Plus, you won't be tempted to keep one on while your head is sweaty, thereby getting it sweaty too, due to not knowing exactly where to store it.
Most backseats don't have the type of headrest that this hat holder can be attached to. This is unfortunate, since kids often sit in the backseat, and kids tend to wear sunhats or baseball caps outdoors. Without a holder in the backseat, they'll have to remember to pass their hats up to their parents for storage instead of just tossing them anywhere.
A lot of people choose to place their baseball cap or any other hat on their dashboard as they drive, but from there, a hat could easily fall to the floor and get dirty. It could also fall into your lap as you're driving, which could be a hazard.
Instead of on the dashboard, other people store a hat on the passenger seat, but this is only a viable option if no one needs to sit there. Moreover, if a passenger does come along, there's a good chance you'll forget to move your hat and they'll sit on it, flattening it.
Individuals with no other alternative may toss a hat into the backseat for storage, but this isn't always a great idea, especially if the backseat is dirty or full of passengers. Besides, regardless of who or what else is in the backseat, a hat being stored back there may not be reachable at a moment's notice.
