I used "Skin Bond " adhesive for external Texas condom catheters for ever but they stopped making it so then I tried I think it was called Torbot which didn't work then I tried "Uro Bond III" it's silicon and causes sores. Anyone know of a product like Skin Bond or something that works for you. Thanks

Hey i use wide band external caths that have more adhesive on than normal ones they are really good i find they adhere very very well unlike a normal sheath,i have faith in these they have rairly let me down and when they have it is due to not keeping an eye on my bag an it gets over full even then it takes alot of pressure to make it come off i have seen it like a balloon an just emptied in time an it still stayed on.

Screw that adhesive SHIT, never worked for me........ Get yourself some Elastoplast 1" tape, use about 7 inches and wrap half on condom and half on your penis....... Not too tight though......

Been doing that for 27 years........ You can even use regular condoms.......

Hi, try this link http://manfredsauer....k/adhesives.asp they have a shed load of adhesive products on prescription and will send you free samples to boot! They have a helpline manned by people with SCI rather than sales people or nurses so your talking the same language Tel 0870 1904 150
Cheers and best of luck! :(

The above is a UK site, so if you are outside of the UK there may be limitations to the services/ no service. Also please add +44 to the number and remove the 0 if outside the UK....although thinking about it, not sure that 0870 numbers are accessible from abroad....

Fab site for UK though :doh:

Its worth mentioning that as Baz points out above, most manufacturers will send out free samples in the hopes that they will get custom! :)

Take care,

Thanks I went to the site but I didn't see anything that is available here, I had Rochester send some samples but in transit someone decided to play football with the box putting a big hole in it and most of the samples had fallen out, I'm still looking for Elastoplast locally . Thanks for the help

I tie my condom catheter by a woollen thread. I take off the condom every morning and wash it and keep my penis free for about 2 hours. I then retie it.

Yep there were three left in the box and they were the wrong size so I am going to call them again and hope they don't think I'm trying to scam them.
