Out of the box, these worked perfectly in our Nissan Pathfinder. I was so pleased & relieved I would not have to hassle with returning them through the mail. The only (minor) thing I don’t like about them is that they don’t adjust small enough for very little heads. They should be fine for my 7 year old, though. MUCH better than wasting time trying to search for the same kind that came with our vehicle — no need!!
