Hi Russell 

I like your idea of the anti snoring strap, i personally have problems breathing through my nose because of some sinus deformity inside my nose when i get any dust or irritation my mucus membrane swells and i cannot breathe clearly, i have had silver nitrate treatment in the past which somewhat helped but i would be scared of using your device for fear of suffocation.
