velco replacement for my Swift FX

Postby Tino2You on Thu Apr 20, 2017 2:24 pm

Hi everyone. Been a while since I was on. I am just wondering if anyone knows where I could get just the velco replacement for my Swift FX. The rest of the mask is fine, the velcro just won't stick anymore. I've sewed my other straps and will do this one too if there is not a third party supplier of the strap.

Thanks

Is the Velcro full of fuzz? If that's the problem, you could use a sharp "pick" type of tool and clean it out.
You can also buy rolls of Velcro at stores (like Walmart) and cut a replacement section and glue/sew it on. I did that with a pair of straps on some sandals my wife wore out. I "shaved" the old Velcro off with a very sharp knife and used Krazy Glue to attach a replacement section. The Velcro rolls already have an adhesive, but I wanted to make sure it stayed put.

You can order just the headgear at cpap.com for $31. It only comes with the silicone frame, but always good to have a spare on hand.

They have it on Amazon for a few dollars cheaper and free shipping.

You talking about just that back strap? I have looked high and low for a source for just that strap and I haven't been able to find a source without having to get the silicone headgear that goes along with it.

A few years ago the Swift FX nasal pillows complete package came with 2 of those back straps and I used to see them being sold on EBay but ResMed (being cheap ass and they want you to buy the headgear again) began just including 1 of those back straps in the package and the EBay source dried up.

If the velcro is simply worn out...you might be able to glue on a tiny new velcro strip. I had to do this to a barrel cozy velcro once. Just used a tiny strip and some glue.
