RE: Chin strap ........ :(
I wear one on and off...more off than on!
Tried a couple different brands, but they stay put for a few hours then slip off.
I will say though that for the time it's on, it does help my jaw from dropping.
I suppose it's a matter of finding the right one.

I hope thios may help.

Are you referring to ruby-style-adjustable-chinstrap-extension-strap at Supplier #1?

I have a small female head and need a chin strap that I can use with nasal pillows mask. Open to suggestions.

I'm using a Ruby with nasal pillows. B005HYTVEK will take you to a source for it.
It adjusts on the top and in the back.

...looking at the picture of it again, I think I've been wearing it wrong. Looks like the big Velcro tab goes on the top instead of in the back.

Is B005HYTVEK a user name? Can't find it in search. Please provide source of chinstrap.

I got mine on Amazon. A google (or similar) search should bring up a link for it using the key word above. The rules don't allow posting direct commercial links.
