Setting Up The Crossbar

Use The Crossbar with your Airhook, fits between a vehicle's headrest bars and also between your luggage handlebars!

1) Insert Crossbar between the bars of your vehicle’s headrest..

2) Pull lever back to release spring tension. 

3) When movement is no longer possible, push lever to lock into place.

4) Insert The Airhook’s tray table anchor into the back opening.

5) Place The Airhook’s stabilizer bar on The Crossbar’s front ledge or directly on your seat.


What electronic devices are supported?

The Airhook will support all phones and tablets up to 9.5 inches tall (when horizontally) that are 1.5 pounds or less. Using the support bungee and toggle you can adjust to your preferred device. The current max device width is just under one inch (20mm). The cases that we found to be too large were the childproof, thick silicone cases, or those with additional carrying compartments on their backside. In those scenarios, the case may have to be removed once in-flight for best use.

What size beverages can fit?

All airline beverages and cans/bottles (using the integrate support arm) can support beverages up to 16 ounces.

Can I use The Airhook during takeoff and landing?

No. Not only is it not safe, it is non-compliant with Stowage Federal Regulations (which is why the tray table must be closed too).

Is The Airhook FAA compliant?

Yes, according to the rules in the current Code of Federal Regulations. Please note, it is very important [and the law] to always comply with airline crew member instructions.
