This is huge news! The Grip-Lok large catheter holders that were such a god-send for me during my 6-months with a catheter are now available to order individually.

For the past few years, getting Grip-Loks has been strangely difficult. At first, I could only get them from the Surgery unit where I had my procedure done. But you can only do that for so long – if at all. My actually Urology clinic didn’t have them. They ONLY had the stretchy fabric types that will NOT hold up a bag if you are walking around. That was a non-starter.
So I went directly to the company (Zefon at the time), who would sell them to distributors. These distributors would then only sell you a box of 100 Grip-Loks for like $400! Zefon did agree to sell ME a 10-pack, which for awhile, I sold to readers. But Zefon sold the Grip-Lok product to another company called Tidi. Sigh.
It was back to square one. But after working with a supplier/distributor called MedEx, I finally got them to make the product available as singles. Woohoo! They cost $9.95 per Grip-Lok.
So if you need just one, or a few at a time:

When I was going through my year of the indwelling catheter (I was lucky enough not to need one forever), I used and appreciated the Grip-Lok because it was better than anything else available. But now – in 2017 – there IS something better. And would have used this instead. It’s called the Freedom Belt.
Not only does it NOT require you to stick something onto your skin, which can be uncomfortable for some people, but it is much more secure. The leg bag attaches to a strap on the belt and allows you to get out and about without worrying that it will pull on your catheter tube, OR that it will pull out of your tube, creating embarrassing, unsanitary and messy spills.
