There's a technique to removing the hose from the mask. Once you get the feel of it, it's a lot easier. Even with my masks that use that connector, I just take the hose off the mask, instead of pulling the swivel off still attached to the hose.

I should take some pictures and post them of the technique. Basically, you don't pull or twist like you're unscrewing it. You lever it sideways so one side of the hose slides up, and then you can take it off easily.

I find it very awkward. So I leave the SlimLine alone usually and just alternate between the Standard and ClimateLine hoses, both of which have a "swivel" ring attached.

It's sort of like trying to explain how to ride a bike over the internet. Once your hands figure it out, it's easy and can be done one handed, drunk, and groggy, in the middle of the night.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
