While sitting in one seat in a car, ship, airplane, etc., one may rest the head on the back or the headrest of the back of the seat. However, because the headrest of the back of a regular motor vehicle's seat is designed for supporting the back of the head only, the neck is suspended from the headrest of the back of the seat.

Therefore, one's neck will become uncomfortable quickly after the head is rested on the headrest of the back of the seat.

This invention relates to a detachable neckrest for fastening to the back of a chair for supporting the neck.

It is the prime object of the present invention to provide a detachable neckrest which can be conveniently fastened to the back of a seat to support the neck. It is another object of the present invention to provide a detachable neckrest which can be fastened to any of a variety of motor vehicle's seats.

According to one embodiment of the present invention, the detachable neckrest comprises a cylindrical neckrest body stuffed with a soft stuffing and having along itudinal opening closed by a zip fastener, and strap means fixedly secured to the cylindrical neckrest body along its length for fastening it to the back of a chair or the like for the resting of the neck. According to another embodiment of the present invention, the strap means is bilaterally and perpendicularly fastened to the cylindrical neckrest body, having length adjusting fastening means for adjusting its length, and loop and hook material for fastening to the back of a chair or the like.

Other objects of the invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.
