Angry I just bought 7 inch Farenheit screen and im pissed

I ordered two 7 inch Farenheit T-7001MHR screens for my headrest and none of the installers told me they will work. They dont come with a bracket to lock the screen into the mesh(bracket). The mesh it comes with is a very cheap piece of plastic and theres nothing locking the screen in place. So when you adjust your seat or drive fast your screen may come out of place and then you'll end up damaging it cuz the wire will be stuck so the lcd may detach from the mounting all together. Im so pissed, i can't believe they would sell some **** like this.

^^^^^^^^^^^

That install costs $200 per headrest and a LEATHER upholstery has to do that not a car stereo shop!

a lot of reputable shops can actually do that, there is no stitching involved in this process just cutting and glue. and if you want something done right and nice, you gotta pay the price

I heard from a VERY reputable stereo store that having tvs in your headrests ****s up your headrests after awhile, say like a year or two later, it starts to look ugly and come loose no matter how good the install is. Is that true? Is there any great way to install your tvs and have your headrests looking the same way 2 years later?

Hmm no one wants to answer this question which makes me think the guy in the stereo store was telling the truth.
