Sorry if this has been answered before - I did a search and didn't find anything.

I've had my TAP for a little over a year but recently have found it regresses during the night. I'm set to 19 half turns each night but when I wake up I find its almost returned to it's start position - result being I snore again. Is there a fix or adjustment I can make myself for this?

I am a dentist working in dental sleep medicine. If you are in possession of a standard wrench that comes with the Tap(the L-shaped silver thing), you can carefully try to tighten the two small screws on the face plate. This might stabilized the adjustment screw and solve your problem. If not, the device needs to go back to the lab to replace the adjustment screw or to make another fix to the mechanism. It is repairable, though. Arthur B. Luisi, Jr., D.M.D
