Default Mikochu, that was an AWESOME tutorial. Thanks!

I just bought the Boomerang armrest for my 2006 Scion xB, to replace Scion's after-market armrest, which, though it had no storage, was okay for the first 4-5 years, but the material on the armrest had totally faded to a baby diarrhea brown, and since the rest of interior still looks brand new, I wanted a refresh. Today I installed the Boomerang, and though the armrest is very nice, the single-page printed instructions with its very poor quality photographs was next to useless for figuring out how and where to place the stabilizers. As a lazy person, I was tempted, as others had done, to install it without them, but I knew I'd be disappointed every time I leaned on it and it tilted to one side, so I did a search and found this incredible tutorial. With Mikochu's detailed instruction and REALLY clear photos, it was really easy to install the stabilizers correctly. I actually joined this forum just so I could thank you (the link to your website doesn't work). So...THANK YOU, Mikochu! Shilo 4/9/16

P.S. If anybody else is considering purchasing one of these, I will note that mine arrived without the 36-CD holder that is supposed to be included; it would have fit snugly into the base of the armrest. As I would have just thrown it away anyway, I didn't care, but if it's something you would use, make sure it arrives with your armrest.

Thanks so much for posting this. You just really made my day.
The lack of an armrest was the only thing really BUGGING me about this car, because I sometimes have to drive long distances to a job.
This looks just like what I was missing.
