Summary

A swivelling clamp to attach the hose of a CPAP machine to the headboard of a bed.

Instructions

****A note to MakerBot, we need a health section in the categories

Print:

1 x Bed frame clamp (for headboard thickness of up to 30mm)
1 x Tube clip
1 x Pin (thigh for press fit or loose for hot glue)
2 x Screw (needs scaling, 1.08 worked for me, see notes bellow)

The screws work very well but you will need to scale them to fit your printer.
Save plastic, use the test screw.

Currently this clip fits a ResMed S9 H5i ClimateLine which is 19mm wide (so says Mr. Calliper)
If you would like me to adjust the clip for a different size let me know.

The clip should be able to stretch enough for a 22mm tube.

Could you make one so the clamp is wider than 30mm? My headboard is a bit wider than that, about 51mm.

I printed this at recommended settings and it works fine. The screw threads didn't need adjusting for size. It's a good thing! Thanks!

Glad it worked out. I am still using the original one I printed after 3 years! Didn't have to replace a single part. Only issue is the headboard clamp tends to widen with the years, requiring tightening (not often). Would probably hold its shape better with polycarbonate or nylon. When mine breaks i'll probably redesign it. Btw the hose clamp can let the hose slide if pulled, would you guys prefer If I added ridges in there to prevent this (lock it in place)?

FYI I have been using this for over 2 years and its still holding. Check the quality of your plastic and your print settings if you have any issues.

I second your motion for a "Health" category.
