Frequently Asked Questions:
Q:How does the DribbleStop incontinence clamp work?
A:The DribbleStop applies gentle pressure on your urethra to stop the flow of urine. Simply adjust it to your size and fit (it is really easy) and the clamp will restrict the flow by applying gentle pressure to only the top and bottom of your penis. The DribbleStop is worn just behind the head of the penis and should be comfortable but effective, and urine leakage should stop.
Q:Is the DribbleStop clamp small enough not to be noticed?
A:It is only 3 inches long and 1/2 inch wide – made entirely of plastic and a medical approved foam it is lightweight, discreet and, more importantly, super-comfortable.
Q:Is the DribbleStop adjustable?
A:Yes, adjusting the DribbleStop penis clamp is easy. Included are 3 pairs of links in different sizes; Small, Medium and Large. You attach a link to either side of the DribbleStop to adjust the size. You can mix and match link sizes for a more accurate fit, for example you could use a Medium link one both sides, or you could use a Medium link on one side and a Large link on the other in order to go up by half a size. It may take a little experimenting to get the right fit for you; the clamp should be tight enough to stop urine leaks but not too tight that it feels uncomfortable. Full, easy to follow instructions are included with each DribbleStop kit to guide you through adjusting your DribbleStop.
Q:What is included in a DribbleStop Kit?
A:You’ll get two DribbleStop clamps, full instructions and extra links to adjust the fit. The clamps will be put together with Medium links and the extra Small and Large links will be contained in a poly bag; make sure not to throw them away when you get rid of your packaging.
Q:Why do you supply two clamps? Why can’t I just order one DribbleStop clamp?
A:It is important to rotate the clamps on a daily basis – this allows the medical grade memory foam to regain its shape after a day of use and for you to rinse and clean it.
Q:How do I clean my DribbleStop clamps?
A:Simply hand-wash your DribbleStop clamp and foam with soap and warm water, rinse and towel dry, you can even wear it again after rinsing. The medical grade foam will not absorb liquid so it comfortable to pop back on if required.
Q:Will the DribbleStop impair circulation or sensation?
A:A DribbleStop clamp has been specifically designed to apply slight pressure to the top and bottom of your penis; it takes very little pressure to stop the flow of urine. You’ll find that blood circulation is not restricted on the sides of your penis and when you’ve adjusted it to a comfortable fit it will control dribbles and leakage without affecting sensation or circulation to your penis. You will still have the normal feeling to relieve yourself when your bladder is full.
Q:Can I go into a swimming pool or hot tub wearing the DribbleStop clamp?
A:Yes, chlorine should not affect the clamp, but rinse the clamp afterwards to prevent any chlorine irritation to your skin.
Q:How do I know if the DribbleStop clamp is safely positioned?
A:You should not be able to feel the clamp if it is positioned correctly and all leakage has stopped. If you feel that the DribbleStop clamp is uncomfortable or painful then you have it too tight. Adjust it accordingly by selecting one of the different notches or different links.
Q:Will the DribbleStop clamp work if I am circumcised? Or not circumcised?
A:Yes the DribbleStop works if you are with foreskin or without! It will still be effective giving you dryness and comfort all day and all night long.
Q:Do I need to consult my doctor before using a DribbleStop clamp?
A:Not unless you feel it is necessary to do so. Obviously once you have used it and found out how effective it can be we would welcome you telling your Doctor or Healthcare provider so that they can pass the message onto to other men who would benefit from using the DribbleStop.
Q:Can I wear the DribbleStop when travelling?
A:Yes! There are no metal parts so you won’t set off any alarms at airport security. A DribbleStop clamp will give you the confidence to travel more – you won’t have to worry about accidents, pads and discomfort!
Q:I am wearing the DribbleStop and still dribbling. What should I do?
A:Adjust the DribbleStop – you should not have any leaks or dribbles. To get the perfect fit the clamp size may just need adjusting slightly try different notches or different link settings.
Q:How long can I wear the DribbleStop?
A:You can wear it 24/7 The DribbleStop clamp is designed to apply slight pressure only on the top and bottom (urethra side) of your penis, and not on the sides, so blood circulation is not impeded. Most men do not leak as much whilst lying down, so we suggest to our customers that they loosen the clamp one notch size when retiring for the night.
Q:How long will a DribbleStop penis clamp last?
A:It really will depend on the amount of time the client uses the clamp it can vary between 4 hours, 8 hours, 12 hours —all day and all night in some cases. The main thing to remember is that the penile clamp should be alternated – and that’s why we have included 2 per pack. The clamp should last anywhere from 8 to 12 months; depending on the usage. Plus the user must be alternating the clamps on a daily basis to allow the memory foam to regain its original shape. If the clamp is not alternated then the foam will start collapsing and the clamp will be less effective and eventually the foam will be worn down.
