Hello al1950

I use Hollister Urostomy pouches with the serial no: 29301. These pouches are made with a lug either side of the pouch and Hollister provide an elastic belt with a small plastic hook at each end. Simple to fit and comfortable to wear.

 thanks for the reply, will give them a try this week, it sounds like an elastic belt with hooks attached will make one in the morning once again thanks for your email

Hey Al, I forgot to mention that I wear a hernia belt.  It was custom made for my appliance by Nu Hope Labs.  It's impossible for the appliance to move with this belt.
