Hi Paula,
(Ha-Ha,) I'm glad it worked and that you could see it, I think I put it at the begining of the post and I ment for it to be at the end,(Ha-Ha.
Thanks for letting me know that it worked.

Hi Trish, Thanks for the idea, I have spare P10 headgear so will give it a go.
It is easy enough to do and looks a lot more comfortable than the one I am using now.
Thanks also for the photo. I needed that, to get the visual.

Sleep Tight...

Hi jctampa,
I'm gonna try to attach this picture I had taken by a friend of mine that has a cell phone that has a camera on it, as most modern phones do. I normally don't take pictures because I'm blind and if I did, the focus would surely be way off, (Ha-Ha-Ha.) My husband and I went up to one of our favorite eating holes and had it taken there.
Please let me know if this works.

Hi Trish,

Thanks for the photo and for the trouble you had getting it. The good news is that NOW I get it! For whatever reason I imagined that you had attached the new chin strap to the existing P10, which I tried and it was not workable (pulled the pillows away).

This I can see working and I will give it a run tonight. Thanks Again.

Hi Paula,
Thank you so much. Next time I do this, I'll try to make sure my cursor is at the end of the post when I attach something to it.

Update on the minimalist chinstrap. It is still working great, for me. You can wear it either way. In the picture, I show it with the split bands under my chin but you can wear it with the split bands on top as well.
