Is there such a thing as a car "DVD Player Mount"?

I've finally broke down and got a 7" portable DVD player for the kids. However, I'm trying to find a way to "mount" this thing in the car (mini-van rather). Anyway, I was thinking something like the CD player mounts used for in the car but in this instance for a portable DVD player. Is there such a thing?

On a different note. Can you recommend a car adapter to feed the sound to the radio?

Thanks.

I have a Toshiba portable DVD player and I use a piece of wood (specifically a piece of oak stair tread from a stair project) and wedge it between the armrests. I put a 4" x 4" velcro square on the piece of wood and on the bottom of the Toshiba (the bottom of the Toshiba is the battery so the velcro isn't on the player itself). This worked extremely well in our van and now works well in our new suv.

As far as the car adaptor for sound, the easiest thing to do is buy one of those cassettes that goes into your van's cassette player and then plugs into the headphone jack of your dvd player.
