What have you done to deal with mouth leak?

Started with Swift FX nasal pillows but was getting excessive leaks out of my mouth. Tried a chin strap but my lips would still open and result in leaks. Switched to full face mask and that has done the trick for me.
We're all family here...you can call me B36 if you'd like!Cool

I use the velcro chin strap lincare sent home with me, but honestly, I still have to mentally keep my mouth close or air can still get thru. I am not sure what the solution is. I really dont want to go to a full mask.
