      Yes, exactly. And this method uses the same hanger strings that are supplied to go over the headrest bars. So it is just a creative adaptation of everything already supplied with the VoltShelf.

      Here is another option. Instead of putting the hanger strings around the headrest bars use these:

      You only need to remove the headrest once to install them, then the strings will go on and off these hangers in a snap if you need to take the VS off its mounts. I've been testing these in my wife's Volt for a while now and they work fine. There are also versions that slip on from the side and do not require removing the headrests at all. And many other similar options as well.

      Here is another option that is just a different version of the same idea: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-1-2-in-x-3-5-8-in-Nickel-Plated-Fixed-Bolt-Snap-43184/205887663

      The closed rings on these fit the headrest bars very well.

      If anyone wants more information or has questions, feel free to ask here or contact me directly.

      If I was not retired and didn't already have most of the raw materials handy, something like what you did would have been the way for me to go.

      The sagging of the VS was driving me nuts though, so either way, I needed to add a rib or two to the underside. And I didn't like the string ends hanging down from the underside either.

      I really wanted to make it look factory from the outside as much as possible. Just seeing those strings and seeing it sag in my rear view mirror was too much for me. Guess I'm kind of anal.[emoji6]

      You of course can add ribs with the attachment method you used and hide the string ends in the ribs too.. Some say they just flip it over occasionally when it starts to sag, so that would be the simple solution.
