Abstract: A simple construction is presented whereby a nonrandomized extra head scheme for stationary ergodic point processes on the line due to T. Liggett (2002) is lifted to $ \mathbf{R}^{n}$ in the Poisson case. This gives the simplest construction for a nonrandomized extra head scheme in higher dimensions, yet the method has been overlooked in previous work on the subject.
