Hose swivel - anyone make one?
Ok so my last pillow mask had a swivel in the front that really helped with hose kinkage and twisting. As users of the P10 know there is no such swivel. So now many nights the hose twists and gets kinks it and is generally stiffer than with the swivel. So I'm just wondering has anyone seen a hose swivel that was independent of a mask or a hose swivel on the end of the main hose, or really anywhere in line. I think this would make the hose move smoother overall.

If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.

Yep, They make such things. For example, go to Supplier #18 site and enter "swivel" in the search field. Voila!
