Important safety notes

WARNING
Do not secure any objects (e.g. coat hangers) on the NECK-PRO head restraints. Otherwise, the NECK-PRO head restraints may not function properly, or in the event of a rear-end collision may not be able offer the level of protection they are designed to provide.

WARNING
Head restraint covers prevent the NECK-PRO head restraints from triggering correctly.

Consequently, the NECK-PRO head restraints cannot provide the intended level of protection. Do not use head restraint covers.

WARNING
For your protection, drive only with properly positioned head restraints.

Adjust the head restraint so that it is as close to the head as possible and the center of the head restraint supports the back of the head at eye level. This will reduce the potential for injury to the head and neck in the event of an accident or similar situation.

The NECK-PRO head restraints increase protection to the driver's and the front passenger's head and neck. The NECK-PRO head restraints on the driver's and frontpassenger seats are moved forwards and upwards in the event of a rear-end collision of a certain severity. This provides better head support.

If the NECK-PRO head restraints have been triggered in an accident, reset the NECK-PRO head restraints on the driver’s and frontpassenger seat . Otherwise, the additional protection will not be available in the event of another rear-end collision. You can recognize if NECK-PRO head restraints have been triggered by the fact that they have moved forwards and can no longer be adjusted.
