Using head restraints

Your car will have head restraints in it, but do you take the time to adjust these before using the vehicle and ensuring they are set at the correct level for you? Head restraints in vehicles are an important safety feature, but unlike the seat belt which people will tend to adjust to be the correct fit for them, many people do not ever think about the head restraints.

Yet head restraints are a very important feature, and can help to reduce how severe an injury is in the event of a crash, but they do need to be adjusted correctly because otherwise they can actually be something that causes more harm than good.

The handbook that comes with the car will tell you how to set and adjust the height of the head restraints, and because of what is explained above you should always ensure the head restraint is set at the correct level for you before any journey.

As a general rule of thumb, the upper edge of the head restraint should be around your eye level.
