I'm super new at this, so take it with a major grain of salt. Ace bandage! Cheap and (for me so far) seems to do the job. Also, putting on the chin strap first and the mask on over it helps stop it slipping off. Apologies if you already tried all that.

Great Idea! Thanks for sharing!!

Whatever works!
Evpraxia in the Pacific Northwest USA
Diagnosed: 44 AHI when supine, O2 down to 82%
Treated since 20 Sept 2014:: 0.7 AHI, Settings 7-15, EPR on Full Time at Level 3
Better living through CPAP/APAP machines!

Me too. Seems to work.
