I saw that a friend of mine had hooks over her driver's head rest to hold backpacks for school drop off. I found this less expensive version (she bought hers at a boutique) and bought them for the same purpose. I really like them for keeping the backpacks off the floor. It's easy for my kids to grab them in the carpool like. I've also used the hooks to hold my bag and other shopping bags. Overall, I'm really happy with the purchase.
