I use the Tender regularly.  I can't answer the door problem, because I
use the Disetronic, but you are correct in your assessment of the tape
seating befor the catheter is fully inserted.

It has never cause a problem for me...I think it is just a function of
the angle at which this particular set is inserted.  

One warning:  don't try to correct it by going in at a steeper angle. 
First, it doesn't make a difference.  Second, IT HURTS!
