How to prevent eyelet cuts from red rubber male catheters...

I am 68, have self-cathed for five years. I have a very large prostate that is encroaching into the bladder. The only catheters that will run for me are the soft red rubber ones with a coude tip.

But these are very poorly made and the eyelets are just ovals that are punched out of the rubber. This leaves a sharp edge all the way around the eyelet and this sharp edge sometimes cuts me as I have veins that are like spider veins on the end of the prostate where it is encroaching on the bladder.

I wanted to dull those eyelet edges and tried all sorts of stuff but finally found the perfect answer. I bought a tool from the Walter Lenk Corporation that I found at my local ACE hardware. I am sure you can find it online as well. It is called the Woodworkers 10 in 1 tool kit and cost $20. It is a wood-burning 'pen' with lots of interchangeable tips. I chose the tip with the broadest cone-shaped end. All you have to do is let the tool heat up for about five minutes, then touch the cone edge of the tip to the eyelet edges and they melt down away from the pen and the sharp edge melts away. Works great!


Ron here,

Thanks for the tip on the tip!
