Anyone use hose hangers

I use the hose buddy. It was about $50 but it's sturdy and should last a long time.

I have a hose buddy also and it works quite well. I also hand my mask on the hook. Fits the crook between the mask and the hose connector and lets the mask hang opening down so no crap falls into it.
Can't remember which one of the suppliers on the list I bought it from.

I just grabbed an old mike stand with a boom arm that I had handy and used that - the mike holder fits the hose perfectly - the boom is over the bed at the right position to draped the hose correctly. I have a mate that boosted an IV stand from his office to use. Doesn't work as well, because it can't get all the way over the bed..

I got this blue metal tube one for about 11 bucks on Amazon. It is designed to go under the mattress, but I had to re-engineer it a bit. I want it to stand on a desk just behind my bed, which is not up against the wall. This comes in pieces you can assemble for travel, and I just took the piece designed for the top, which has a 45-degree bend in it, and put that nearer the bottom, so that the whole thing booms out over my head and drops straight down in front of my face, perfect whether I sleep on one side or the other. Then I put a 50-pound book about Leonardo Da Vinci on it as a weight (Leo would be proud).
It has a little bungee cord running through it, so you can take it apart near the base to get it out of the field of view every morning, which takes less time and effort than pulling out the humidifier tub.
Hose hangers help but what I think helps more is a hose cozy. The hose is much more aesthectically acceptable when covered. If I had neither, I would get the cozy first, which is what I did, and it helps immensely. The hanger is just icing on the cake.

I've never had a problem with it falling or breaking.

I use a shelf bracket, $2 and some velcro I already had, but it's pretty cheap. I put the bracket in the middle of the space above the bed, so I can sleep on either side.

Search for Cpap Hose Holder on ebay and/or on amazon. I've used them and got them for very reasonable prices
