These clips provide further securement of The Insides Tube. The Insides Clip is placed on the outside of the ostomy appliance, over the Tube (think of a clothes peg), and sits as close to the bottom of retention sleeve as possible. How to use The Insides Clip and Applying The Insides Clip video can be found on the training hub. The Clips are colour coded:

  • Purple Clip can be used on the 28 Fr and the 22 Fr Tube and is placed on the widest part of the tube (this is 39 Fr), distal to the retention sleeve.
  • Orange Clip is used with the 28 Fr tube and is placed on the 28 Fr portion of the tube if it is unable to be fully inserted into the intestinal outlet.

Yellow Clip is used with the 22 Fr tube and is placed on the 22 Fr portion of the tube if it is unable to be fully inserted into the intestinal outlet.
