Connection Problems

Mon, 14 Mar 2022 18:35:28 GMT

I just purchased a set of these to experiment with based on favorable comments on YouTube videos from the Lankylefty27. I am very impressed with everything about them except for one thing. I have a terrible time connecting the ports. I have watched the developer’s videos numerous times, and I have followed his recommendation to practice in order to develop muscle memory. Regardless, it still takes me forever to make the connection, and when I finally do, I am so frustrated that I have problems going to sleep. I have destroyed several of the adhesive ports during my efforts. It seems like my fingers are too big to hold the parts and I struggle to get the QR clips to “snap” into the DreamPorts. Especially looking into a mirror. It doesn't seem like it, but I wonder if I have worn down the "snap tabs" in the QR connection. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Definitely falls into the YMMV (your mileage may vary!!!!) category. I had a lot of trouble connecting dreamports until I stopped looking in mirror! Applying dreamports to face, mirror is absolutely necessary!! But trying to attach ports to dreamway connector in mirror, I was always moving them in wrong direction, having connection/leak issues. One night, I tried doing without mirror at bedside. Lined up by feel, and it clicked right into place!!!!! Coming up on a year later, and I haven’t had connection issue since, that couldn’t be fixed by simply detaching/re-attaching. Maybe that’s just me, but maybe it will help. Good luck!!!
