Usage Tips


Strap Tightness

The non-elastic blue strap should be put on fairly snugly.  This will prevent your jaw from lowering while your jaw muscles are relaxed during sleep.  The elastic band should only be used to add a small additional upwards force.

Teeth Gap

Many people find it most comfortable to leave a gap between the upper and lower teeth such as you normally have when awake and your mouth is closed and jaw relaxed. The Knightsbridge Dual Band is unique in that it can be easily adjusted to achieve this. To do so use
two hands (one on the strap, one on the cap) to attach the blue non-elastic band so it is fairly snug, and then add just the slightest additional force via the elastic band.

Strap placement
Pass the straps under the jaw near the front of the jaw, and attach the straps near the front of the Velcro patch. This provides the most vertical orientation of the lift.

The three layer net-mesh of the Premium and the 100% Indian manta cotton of the Plus are designed to provide a cap which is light and breathable.  Yet to provide vertical lift a full cap construction is required.  This will inherently result in some degree of heat retention.  It may therefore be helpful to slightly adjust room temperature or blanket thickness.

Nasal Dilators
Nasal dilators are devices that are placed in the openings of the nose to widen the air passage and make nasal breathing more comfortable (for people who are using the Knightsbridge without a CPAP machine).  Our recommendations are the NasalAid device and the Snore Care Set.  NasalAid looks a little intimidating and is a bit more expensive than the others, but it is very comfortable and we feel it is worth the price.


WARNING:  User should be capable of donning and adjusting chin strap themselves.
