Hi guys here is a video for those who are new, showing how simple it is to attach a topper piece with Hollister medical adhesive. I will make another video showing hop to clean the piece once you remove it to make it real simple, if you do it the a certain way it can be real fast , if you do it another way it can be a real pain. When I get another stock piece from Eric I will make a video showing how to cut it down to size to fit your template.

Cool. I have the same stock piece as you (diff color of course)

Eric, can you comment on the issues specifically with using tape on thinskin? If you made sure to put enough alcohol on it seems to me that it would release ok without any more wear & tear than glue?

Hi Maykell, that was an informative video thanks for doing that. Just curious, why did you switch from full cap to topper? Is a topper less detectable and easier to wear than a full cap?

Hi Maykell,
Would the Hollister medical grade work on an all french lace piece? Also where do you get the Hollister Glue? What do you use to release.
Thanks
Pat

Thank you so much for taking the time to make this video for everyone Maykell, it is so nice to "see" things being done sometimes rather than just reading about them. That was an excellent video and I am looking forward to seeing your cleanup video in a few days.

Hi Receded...I personally would never use tape on a thinskin piece, because I have heard from many that it can rip the base when you try to take it off because it is too fragile.

I have had a few wearers tell me they put a light tape down first and then a strong tape over it (a couple guys have even mentioned a scotch tape barrier to me), however please remember you still run the risk of ruining your piece if the tape doesn't overlap just right and the strong tape gets on the base. Some then leave the "barrier tape" on the piece and just continue to tape over it.

I just wouldn't personally use tape on thinskin from what I've heard from the majority due to the risks...unless you have an old piece that you want to experiment on. I'd hate to hear that you ruined a good/new piece. Tape sometimes "fuses" to skin or poly and then it causes removal issues because the tape just does not want to come off without a lot of effort. With poly, it's durable enough that you can get it off without ruining the base, but that's not the case with thinskin or ultra thinskin.

This is just my 2 cents and hopefully those that have more experience actually wearing skin can chime in too.

Maykell, have you made a video of cutting your stock piece out using your template as it would be interesting to see ?
