Swift LT Fix

Post by jules » Thu Jul 23, 2009 7:56 pm

The headgear slips on my hair and comes loose so to keep it in place and also to help anchor the pillows I added an elastic band - I used a yard of 1/4 wide black elastic

The elastic is looped over the bottom piece of the headgear and tied to the right size (tie the first time you put this on)

Image

Put the mask on and then put the elastic band into the "slots" on both sides of the headgear - follow the pink arrow (tie it to size the first time) - each night I need to spend a minute or so adjusting it to feel best

Image

It will then look in front like

and in back like

So the elastic is a loop tied around the back of the lower strap. and each side of the loop goes around the little tabs above the pillows on the headset.

Is this right?

Yes -it is loose on the lower strap then you put it on the middle as you set everything in place for the night


==========================================

This is same fix for the Original Swift - would work for Swift II also - the elastic happened to be in 2 pieces that time - part white - part black but it was also a loop through the triangles this time
