Modified Breeze with CL2 Strap

Postby puffing billy on Wed Aug 02, 2006 12:42 pm

I thought you might like a look at my latest attempt at comfortable headgear.

I hope the photo comes out. If not what do I need to do.

Hi Laura
I thought you might notice it.
Thanks for the photo info.
I am sure it will work with other straps.
It took about 20 minutes to do and involved removing the the metal back half of the headgear. Pull off the rubber on the top strap plate and unscrew the screws. Drill 3 holes in the hose support and screw back together. Put the rubber back and reconnect the new straps.

Main aim was to get rid of the horrible hard bit at the back of the headgear.

Great job! I used the CL2 straps on my Breeze too, but I didn't remove the back plate or drill into it. I've been using mine for a couple a nights now and it works well. How is it working for you?

Not as well as hoped.
Although very comfortable, the strap seems to ride up halfway through the night and then of course the leaks start.
I need to have another look at the design.

I have been using the breeze for 18 months and love it but at the extolling of people on the board, i got a CL2. I cannot keep it in place as it keeps riding up despite using Sullivan chinstrap [to keep my mouth closed] as i do with the breeze. the CL2 is very comfortable but it just does not stay put like the breeze. new breeze will be in from cpap.com tomorrow!

Breeze changes query

Postby Ms Piggy on Mon Aug 07, 2006 3:59 pm

Hi, wonder if Puffing Billy can tell me if the metal section of the Breeze can be replaced once it is removed? I prefer the headgear as it is for side sleeping but would like to work out something with the metal and plastic bit removed, but want to put it back if nesessary.
In a way the discomfort is a good thing as it stops one from back sleeping -which in my case seems to give me a bad day

Also Puffing B. (or anyone else) please tell me can you read your PB 420E reults daily, and does it show the daily results or just average of them whenever you can access them?
Also does the softwear allow you to download these details to your computer or is something else needed? I have a basic type remstar, so uncomplicated.
thank you.

CL 2 slippage

Postby birdshell on Mon Aug 07, 2006 5:16 pm

I posted a new thread for strap fixes. The CL 2 strap velcro fix is the best I have found. Hopefully, others will post their fixes for other mask/strap models.
