I had one of these chinstraps several years ago and I gave it to my son. He liked it as much as I did. I do not snore. I use this to keep my lips closed as I "sip" air when I sleep and dries out my mouth
Written By: Kathy, PA 9/16/2017
Purchased item for my 92yo mother who has been dislocating her jaw when she yawns. It works very well for this, offers support to prevent her from opening to wide. Cons: stitching on the chin support irritates her skin. Velcro is just glued on, within one week it came off. I will sew both Velcro straps on.
This strap did not work for me in the way that I hoped it would
Written By: Long-time CPAP user, Lexington, MA 9/14/2017
I purchased this chin strap in the hope that it would work a little better with the slightly pointy shape of my head than the one I have been using, which is effective, as long as it doesn't slip off the tallest point on my head (even if this review isn't useful to you, perhaps it will make you smile). I was disappointed in two ways: one way is that it did not come with pictorial instructions showing optimal positioning. The second way is that even after substantial fiddling, I could not come up with a way in which it both firmly clamped my mouth shut and did not choke me. I suspect this strap would be just fine for someone with a different shaped head. I just think you have to experiment with different options to see what will work for you.
Helps my therapy but is uncomfortable
Written By: Bigdog, CA 9/7/2017
Immediately stopped mouth leak. It's what I needed. The problem I have is with the seam/tab on the back of the chinstrap. The hard plastic tab is exactly the same width as the piece it attaches to. If it's not aligned perfectly, as I tilt my head, it digs into my neck and doesn't feel very good. I've taken to biasing the hard plastic part up so there's a little cushion of the mating tab below. It is also really difficult to pull the tab up to release because the tab connects right up to the edge and there's no easy way to grab it I'd recommend a different attachment design.

Nice product, but...

The chin strap is very nice, but it does not fit my head and I do not see where they offer aa size larger. I would not, however, blame the manufacturer. It is well made and well designed. I just wish it would have fit.
Good product, good price

I don't use a CPAP, but dry mouth interrupts my sleep every night. Since I've been using this to keep my mouth closed, my mouth does not dry out so badly and I'm able to sleep more soundly - even remember my dreams again. Good product, good price. Consider promoting it as dry-mouth therapy and not restricting it to CPAP accessories.

I ordered the standard size adjustable and it fit perfectly without adjustment. I had been getting the "Premium Chinstrap" through my insurance and it kept falling apart within a couple of months. This product is perfect compared to the "Premium" one.
Written By: Kenneth Myers, Ventura, CA 6/21/2017
It's near impossible to figure out which size we should have ordered. There has to be way. The chin strap covers to much of my face when you add in the cpap mask. I don't feel I can get the mask off fast enough.
Written By: Grandma Janet, Wisconsin 6/21/2017
Have tried various chin straps and am pleased to say this is by far the best I have tried. Easy on-off. Snug fit without discomfort. Even have no or very little lines on face from wearing it. Would highly recommend it. Sizing was spot on.
So much head coverage
Written By: Lin, 6/19/2017
Ordered xl based on reviews. A little to large. Seems like design is a bit much for a chin strap. Difficult to ignore this many straps for sleeping.
Written By: Raysa, Cooper City 6/19/2017
I had waited sometime before reviewing this product and I must say, it does work. I was experiencing dry mouth at night plus the snoring that kept waking me up very often. My decision to try is worth vs. using a machine to sleep. It keeps my mouth close, I sleep well, discomfort is minimal thanks to this simple gadget and price is excellent.

My wife was in need of a chin strap that actually worked for her oxygen therapy. After having tried several from various sources, including the one from her equipment provider, we found the PureSom Ruby on the internet from Direct Home Medical. We ordered the smaller size based on the measurement procedure recommended. This one worked great, but was a little tight. We then ordered the larger size. While it is a little larger, we made adjustments to fit her comfortably, with no leakage. Now, she wouldn't use anything else. Also, the provider wasted no time in shipping these items. We received them in the shortest practical time. By the way, we kept the smaller chin strap as an extra.

I ordered the XLG chin strap based on other reviews. However, it was WAY too big! I sent it back for an exchange for the smaller sized (medium). After a week I emailed the company. They called me back, and sent the new chin strap. I was pleased that the design was different than the larger one, and it is adjustable. It fits perfectly. Excellent customer service, and a perfect product!

I was recently told that I needed to ware a chin strap. The one issued me consisted of two straps and was extremely uncomfortable. After some research,I found the PureSom Ruby adjustable. If you need to ware a chin strap,this is the one to buy. Get the warranty on your first purchase so you can return it if it doesn't fit.

I think they should warn you that this thing goes on tight even if you adjust it to its loosest configuration.
Best one I found
Written By: JMW, Southern Virginia 2/13/2017
I have a "chinstrap box" full of ones that didn't work, too flimsy, or too tight. Had I purchased this one first I wouldn't have the box. Having gone through quite a few I can honestly say this is the most comfortable one I've found. If you've tried others and don't like them, buy one of these.
Did Not Work For Me

It did not work at all for me. I snore just the same with the strap as I do without. Had hoped it would work as advertised but it doesn't.
Does not Fit Well
Written By: Kristina Gaither, Streetsboro 1/15/2017
I found this one does not fit my head. It is difficult to put on as it wants to drift onto my forehead. If I do get it arranged, the chin portion drifts up over my mouth through the night.

This the best fitting chin strap and well made. The other ones I tried were cheaply made and did not fit.
Written By: Steve G., Gulf Shores, Alabama 11/19/2016
Tho the measurements leave a bit to be desired, (the Standard size claims it was an inch bigger than my head, but it fit very tight, and there's no Medium size,) when Direct Home Medical exchanged it for the larger Extra Large, it adjusted to fit well. They need a Medium size.
While it succeeded in keeping my jaw closed, the CPAP's pressure blows through my lips. Not the strap's fault.
PurSom Adjustable Ruby Red Chin Strap Fits Great!
Written By: Sally Fiducia, Palm Coast, Florida 11/13/2016
The ruby red chin strap is adjustable and fits very comfortably with the Airfit P10 nasal pillow mask. This is my second chin strap and the life span is about a year with hand washing in mild soap. My old one is still good for an emergency as the elasticity is fine. Since my Medicare CPAP supplier never sent me my chin strap, I was very happy to find it at Direct Home and at a reasonable price $19.99. It's a great product that does what is supposed to do.
The Best so far.
Written By: Beth, Dallas 10/23/2016
I've been using mine for a couple of years. When I reordered supplies I got a totally different one that was confusing and hard to use. Next time I asked for another one of these but I didn't give a part #. Still not the same one. I'm hoping I didn't have the medium size that's been discontinued. I'll keep washing mine til I find the right one.
By far the best of the 3 or 4 I've tried. Fabulous, in fact!
Written By: Carvel, Utah 10/7/2016
The others are a waste of money & time and space. This one is comfortable but not expensive. It probably won't slip off my chin during the night.
Written By: Nebraska User, Greater Omaha Nebraska Area 9/7/2016
Not happy with this product. I picked up my bi-pap machine in July and have been wearing this chin strap for 3 months and it does not fit properly. You show a deep chin cup area and that is not the case. I have had this chin strap come up and bruise my lower lip because it will not stay in place. I went back to my supplier to verify I was wearing it properly. It also eats away at my ears. Poor design qualities, poor fit.
Excellent chin strap

I purchased this product and really wanted it to work, but it doesn't. Due to health reasons I can only sleep on my back. Since I started sleeping on my back, my mouth comes open and I have such dry mouth that it is causing dental problems. My dentist was the one who said I needed to address the issue of sleeping with my mouth open. I saw this product and thought it would be perfect. Two problems, first it doesn't always stay on as promised, secondly once asleep my mouth is still able to open, so it doesn't work!

For some reason Puresom decided to delete a mid size strap. I've used the midsize unit for years and I now have to deal with a smaller size as the larger unit is simply too large. The smaller is simply too tight leaving lines on my face every night. I would hope the mid size would return very soon.

CPAP chin strap
Written By: Brenda D`, Lancaster, Pa 12/29/2015
I use this PURESOM RUBY CHINSTRAP since I seem to breathe in a lot of air which creates a dry mouth. The chinstrap is made of very strong material to keep the chin from falling during sleep. I have not been able to find a better chinstrap for a mouth breather. With this strap and a mouth guard I have a moist mouth during the night.

Written By: SG, DC 8/22/2015
I've been using this strap for a couple weeks now, and it does exactly what I wanted--it keeps me from getting a dry mouth when using my CPAP. Unfortunately, I ordered a regular and should have gotten a large. I didn't see instructions for measuring, but I saw other comments that said there were some. I don't think of myself has having a large head, but the regular just barely fits, letting the adjustments out until they are barely connecting. The connectors are a velcro-type closure, but they aren't velcro--there are no hooks like velcro has. That is good, since they are in your hair, but I do wonder how long they will last. Still, at the price, if I have to buy one every year, it would be worth it.
Written By: bill c., New England 7/22/2015
The straps work great for a while. Then the Velcro part on to of the head starts to curl backwards. Eventually it becomes a lump on the back of your head in the pillow. The Velcro looses its attaching ability, so it can't be just pushed in to place. I thing the solution it to mask the end longer so it wraps around the head more, not rubbing on the pillow. I've had two - same issue on each.

A Must Have
Written By: Glenn, Tennessee 4/2/2015
This product should be given to everyone along with their first CPAP machine. It fit very well right out of the box, no adjustments needed. After the first night of wearing the strap I kicked myself for not buying it sooner. Every night since that first night has been a restful, full nights sleep. I highly recommend it without hesitation.

Ruby Adjustable Chinstrap - too large
Written By: jnj, WV 1/5/2015
I had read the other reviews about the small being very small so I bought the larger one. It is too big, but still works. The concept works better than what I had tried before because of my longer hair, they would just slip up. Wish I had started with the smaller one!

I ordered the "standard" size, and it is almost too small. I'm right at the extremes of the adjustment and barely can get it attached. I don't have an overly large head either. The "standard" size might be better suited for teenagers and maybe some women.

pursom ruby adjustable chinstrap
Written By: Judi, Sturgis 7/4/2014
This is a very good product, however, it is quite hot on high temperature nights. I turned the ruby side to my face and found it to be cooler. The back section could be narrower - I have long hair and put it up a night and have to have it a little higher than I would like. I may do some personal modifications to it after I have fully trialled it. I would purchase the larger size next time as there is not much adjustability for me on the average size. Apart from that, it certainly does a good job of keeping my mouth shut.

Ruby Adjustable Chin Strap
Written By: S.F., San Francisco 9/24/2012
This strap did not work for me. My entire family reported that I still snored while sleeping in a hotel room. I found that it moved off my chin which allowed my mouth to open. Additionally, even though I tightened it, it seemed to loosen during the night which allowed my mouth to open. When my mouth opens, snoring follows.
Should have believed the bad reviews
Written By: TedF, New Mexico 9/11/2012
Reviews of this chinstrap have often been critical of its fit. It is widely reported to be too tight. I am a small man and I wear a size 7 hat. The regular size Ruby is much too small. It is so tight that it causes almost immediate jaw pain. There is no way I could sleep in it. The fact that it is now described as adjustable encouraged me to give it a try. A bad decision and a waste of money. Very disappointing.

PureSom Ruby ADJUSTABLE Chinstrap for CPAP Therapy
Written By: Paul, Houston 8/20/2012
The PureSom Ruby ADJUSTABLE Chinstrap is the best chin strap that I have ever used. It fits just right, and is easy to get on and off. Simply adjust the back strap to fit you, and you are ready for a good night's sleep. Your wife or husband will be glad you are using it, because the snoring will be gone. I have used CPAP since 1987. I was one of the first to use one in Houston area to treat my obstructive sleep apnea. I would still mouth breath, which reduces the effectiveness of the CPAP. Buy one of these, you will be glad that you did. Paul

I've tired MANY chins straps, the ruby is wider, a few issues with the velco... with all that said it works better than the others! It DOES NOT have that toxic smell when you get it out of the bag. (That toxic smell lingers even after washing with the other company straps) For my needs, the Ruby adjustable chin strap is a great product for the price and the customer service is excellent.

I found the straps to be a bit too much on the wide side. It actually covers quite a lot of my cheeks and chin area. It is not binding but I personally don't like that much covering my face - especially when I already have to have the cpap mask on it too. Other than that - it is comfortable and adjustable.

Written By: Cindy, Milton 4/9/2012
My husband's measurement was right aroud 23" but the standard size was really too small. We just ordered a large, to see if it fits better. We were able to make it fit with some home modifications, but it doesn't stay on all night. When it is on, it does keep his mouth shut which helps the machine work better. He's also tried it by itself and that actually helps keep him from snoring even without the machine. He's getting a better night's sleep.

PureSom Ruby Adjustable Chinstrap
Written By: Scott Jackson, Woodbridge 2/29/2012
I'm using the Ruby Adjustable Chinstrap. I use a full mask (Phillips FitLite full face mask). The Chinstrap appears to keep your jaw from slipping below the mask. However, the Velcro adjusting straps irritates your skin since there is no cover to keep the Velcro strap needles from coming in contact with you chin. I use toilet paper to keep the spikes from irritating my neck. You'd think the manufacture would solve this irritation problem.
